The red hot topic of data control and management will be addressed head-on in two back-to-back sessions at RISMedia’s Real Estate CEO Exchange this September. During these important panel discussions, key players in the data drama will candidly discuss the pros and cons of the new Broker Portal, and how brokers can best monetize data no matter who’s holding the reins. The invitation-only CEO Exchange is now sold out. Please contact Randi Vannucchi firstname.lastname@example.org for wait-list eligibility.
At 2:30 p.m. on Sept. 16—the opening day of the CEO Exchange, taking place at Manhattan’s historic Yale Club—“The Fate of Data Control” will take a look at the ongoing portal power-play, the new National Broker Public Portal and Project Upstream.
