“It’s year number 25. It’s going to truly be the most celebratory Sell-a-bration® of all time,” says Brian Copeland, CRS, with Village Real Estate Services in Nashville, Tenn., who worked with the Council to develop the program and will emcee the event.

“This year, we’re adding conversation and implementation workshops, and the main-stage program has been completely transformed to optimize your time with the best and brightest at Sell-a-bration®. You’ll hear from 10 or more people on the main stage in the morning sessions and then be able to get almost one-on-one with them afterwards to dig deeper into your personal needs in your business,” Copeland says.
The conference program includes a welcome reception on Jan. 31 and luncheon on Feb. 1. Luncheons on Thursday, Jan. 31 and Saturday, Feb. 2 will require tickets purchased separately. The pre-conference event, Buyers Legends on Jan. 30, will require a separate registration fee.
