Society Executive Director, John M. Peckham III said "Like the five previous annual events which have grown steadily from 20,800 to 41,292 attendees and have featured over 140 national speakers, the 2007 On-line Convention brings real estate professionals all of the excitement and features of a "hard floor" convention. This year, in addition to Keynoters Vredevoogd-Combs and Perriello, attendees will learn from over 30 top-notch nationally recognized real estate trainers, authors and luminaries such as: Robert Ringer, Kendra Todd, Matthew Ferrara, Suzee Miller, Andy Rathbone, Dan Gooder Richard, Michael Russer, Terry Watson, and Pat Zaby."
"This year's event features networking centers including an array of discussion rooms at selected Expo Booths and a 24-hour "Ticker Tape" featuring special announcements regarding events, exhibitor chat room openings, special drawings."
"There is very little attendees will miss at this virtual event," Peckham concluded, "All of the elements of a "hard floor convention" will be there. The only thing missing will be out of pocket costs for airfare, hotel bills, lost shoe leather, aching muscles, travel hassle, registration fees – and time away from home! Attendees can thank the exhibitors and sponsors for that – it's their gift to the industry."
