Nothing Beats Being There, But This Comes Close

I have been very fortunate to attend many different Real Estate conferences over the last several years. Unfortunately as I type this, I am missing one going on right now – BlogWorld in Las Vegas. Thankfully, Social Media has created amazing opportunities to follow these events even when you aren’t able to attend them. I have been fortunate to follow the twitter hashtag #BWE10 and keep up on all that’s happening. Not to mention a whole list of amazing friends keeping me up to speed – @tcar @startabuzz @mikemueller and many others.

While it still doesn’t replace being there, I do get at least a good taste of the information being shared. However, there are usually amazing conversations in the halls, at meals, etc. where collaboration, friendship, and fun all occur.

This year at the National Association of REALTORS (NAR) Annual Conference in New Orleans, it is anticipated that 20,000 REALTORS will attend. With a membership well over 1 Million that means many REALTORS will not get to enjoy all the amazing events, keynote speakers, classes, and so much more offered at #NARdiGras! Recognizing this, the GREAT staff at NAR came up with an amazing solution this year:

While nothing beats being there, this is going to come awfully close! NAR will be providing a unique online window into everything that will be going on throughout the conference. The  NAR Conference Live site will feature a wide spectrum of Social Media content provide by 20 featured members attending the conference. You’ll get to see, hear, and experience NARdiGras through their eyes.

So if you can’t make it this year, be sure to catch all the action at NAR Conference Live!
