Not enough hotel space in Chicago would be available
RISMEDIA, March 24, 2006?The 2007 NAR Conference & Expo, set to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the National Association of Realtors®, is moving to Las Vegas, from its scheduled convention city of Chicago, according to Realtor Magazine.
The new dates for the conference are Nov. 12-16, 2007, at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.
NAR learned recently that a major portion of the contracted hotel space in Chicago for the 2007 conference would not be available, but it was able to secure the appropriate space in Las Vegas, according to the magazine.
?NAR very much wanted to celebrate our 100th anniversary in Chicago,’ says Sue Gourley, NAR’s vice president of the convention group. However, we are pleased that we were able to secure an appealing alternate location. We expect to have another wonderful conference and record-breaking year in 2007.?
The last-minute venue change also will result in a change in the day pattern for the annual meeting. Instead of Nov. 2-6, 2007, which is the typical Thursday through Monday pattern for the annual meeting, the new meeting dates will be Nov. 12-16, which is a Monday through Friday.
