ORLANDO, Fla. – Success strategies from top real estate leaders, the chance to network with other industry professionals, and the latest in high-tech devices: That’s what the Florida Realtors® 2023 Convention & Trade Expo offers – opportunities to boost business and your bottom line.
Florida Realtors Convention & Trade Expo takes place Aug. 16-17, 2023, at the Rosen Shingle Creek resort in Orlando, with the popular REBarCamp slated to kick off the event on Tuesday, Aug. 15.
“The Florida Realtors 2023 Convention and Trade Expo is the one business event this year that every Realtor should attend,” says 2023 Florida Realtors® President G. Mike McGraw, a broker-associate with RE/MAX Central Realty in Orlando. “It’s two days too good to miss: In just 48 hours, real estate professionals can engage with the best in our business and learn successful business practices, get marketing strategies, hear inspirational speakers who offer advice from experience, network with their peers and enjoy great entertainment, too.”
The 2023 convention features more than 35 education sessions from leading real estate speakers on various topics such as cybersecurity for Realtors; winning strategies for challenging times; how to ‘list to last’ when it comes to listing opportunities; what Realtors need to know about crypto, bitcoin and blockchain; and social media secrets of real estate superstars.
- REBarCamp: Aug. 15, 8:45 a.m.
Sponsored by Florida Realtors Young Professionals Network (YPN), this peer-to-peer learning and sharing event isn’t a lecture – more of a Q&A session where Realtors ask experts – and sometimes each other – the hard questions. Over 500 members have attended REBarCamp in previous years.
