RISMEDIA, January 14, 2010—The Ninth Annual National Real Estate Cyber Convention and Exposition is expected to attract over 10,000 real estate professionals during the seven-day, online event from February 21-27, 2010 and is open to the entire real estate community worldwide.
According to Angela Portosa, convention director at CyberConvention.com, the event producer, this year’s event will present even more “wiz bang” as it rolls out features such as extreme networking in the Convention Community Center–a fully-fledged social networking center allowing attendees to network with other event participants including all speakers and exhibitors before, during and after the event. Another new feature allows attendees to use the free CyberConvention “app” on all major smartphones including the iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, J2ME, Palm OS, Symbian S60 and phones running Windows Mobile.
The convention will feature three major keynote addresses, plus over 50 nationally recognized real estate trainers, authors and industry leaders. The keynoters heading up the program this year include Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist of the National Association of Realtors who will discuss “The 12 Months Ahead – What’s Going to Happen.” The second keynote “10 Ways to Propel Your Business into the Real Estate Recovery” will be presented by Randy Eagar, president of the Computer Camp. The final keynote will feature Jennifer Allan, author of “Sell with Soul” who will tell attendees: “No More Doom & Gloom – Let’s Get Ready for the Real Estate Boom!”
The Exposition at the 2010 Convention will feature booths open 24 hours a day during the event with the latest new ideas, products and services of interest to today’s real estate professionals. In addition to checking out new products and services at the booths, attendees can win substantial door prizes, hear presentations, view video presentations, get brochures and talk live with the vendors. In addition to the booth door prizes the Convention grand drawing winner will receive a luxury week-long cruise for two.
According to Portosa, over 200 real estate associations and organizations worldwide have joined to sponsor this unique virtual event which is produced by CyberConventions.com in cooperation with the Real Estate CyberSpace Society with over 10,000 real estate members in 120 Chapters. Many prominent real estate organizations and real estate media sources have banded together to make the ninth annual production of this event even bigger than ever.
The major sponsors for this annual event include RISMedia’s Top 5 in Real Estate Network®, Matthew Ferrara & Company and Brainchain. Official Sponsors include Boopsie, Inc, Realty U, Mr. Internet’s Online Dominance Mentoring Program and the CCIM Institute.
Real Estate CyberSpace Society Executive Director, John M. Peckham III said, “The eight previous annual events have featured over 240 national speakers and the 2010 Cyber Convention brings real estate professionals all of the excitement and features of a “hard floor” convention plus the new convention Social Networking Community Center and other cyber networking features.
“This year, in addition to Keynoters Lawrence Yun, Randy Eagar and Jennifer Allan, attendees will learn from over 50 top-notch nationally-recognized real estate trainers, authors and luminaries.
“This year’s event will be held again in the spectacular new virtual convention center that is extremely immersive. Last year one attendee drew the comparison to “Second Life” but quickly added that the CyberConvention is extremely easy to navigate and is just like being there. Attendees are also provided with a special Convention Program Guide containing comprehensive convention information.”
“The Society knows that this year’s event is ideal in these “pinch penny” times. “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 and time away from home.”
