Leading Power Brokers will gather in Chicago, Ill., this November as guests of honor at RISMedia’s 22nd Annual Power Broker Reception & Dinner, being held Friday, Nov. 3, during the REALTORS® Conference & Expo.
The Power Broker Reception & Dinner is an exclusive, invitation-only event honoring the Top 500 brokers in RISMedia’s Annual Power Broker Report & Survey, published in April. The event, held at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago, includes a cocktail reception followed by a dinner and an awards ceremony, and will be capped off by a talk by special guest speaker Frank Abagnale, the author and film subject of “Catch Me If You Can.”
The awards ceremony is one of the event’s main highlights, where the following honors will be presented to four industry leaders:
