Success strategies from top industry leaders, the latest in high-tech devices and a chance to network with other real estate professionals: that’s what the Florida Realtors® 2022 Convention & Trade Expo is promising to offer – opportunities to expand business and the bottom line. Martha Stewart will also keynote the general session.
Florida Realtors Convention & Trade Expo takes place August 24th-25th at the Rosen Shingle Creek resort in Orlando, with the popular REBarCamp slated to kick off the event on Tuesday, August 23rd.
“Florida Realtors 2022 Convention and Trade Expo is the one business event this year that every Realtor should attend,” said Florida Realtors President Christina Pappas, vice president of the Keyes Family of Companies in Miami. “Over the course of just two days, Realtors can learn successful business strategies from top industry leaders, get marketing tips, hear inspirational speakers who offer advice from the trenches, network with colleagues and enjoy exciting entertainment.”
The 2022 convention features nearly 40 education sessions from top industry speakers on various topics such as how-to sell luxury homes, the post-pandemic future of global real estate, how traditional brokerages can increase their profit margin, how to create videos people will watch, and proven strategies for “irresistible listing presentations.”
- REBarCamp, Aug. 23rd
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.
- General Session Keynote: Martha Stewart
Forbes magazine says Martha Stewart is the first self-made woman to reach billionaire status. Oprah was the second. Instead of a generic presentation, Stewart will answer business-boosting questions provided by Florida Realtors. Be there for real-life business insights from a woman with worldwide star power, unparalleled success as an entrepreneur, crossover celebrity status due to her partnership with Snoop Dog and exemplary communication skills. She paid a price for a bad decision, but when it comes to her businesses, she continues to “Wow the World.” One ticket included with registration for in-person convention.
- Dance Party with Party on the Moon, Aug. 24th
American’s No. 1 Party Band returns – Party on the Moon delivers a high-energy evening of the latest dance music, ’80s classic rock, Latin, disco/funk, R&B and Motown. One ticket included with registration for in-person convention.
- Awards Luncheon, Aug. 25th
