Leading brokers from around the nation will gather next week in Orlando, Fla. to be the guests of honor at RISMedia’s 21st Annual Power Broker Reception & Dinner, being held on Friday, Nov. 4, during the annual NAR convention.
RISMedia’s annual Power Broker Reception & Dinner is an exclusive, invitation-only event honoring the Top 500 brokers in RISMedia’s Annual Power Broker Report & Survey, published the previous April. The evening of honors includes a cocktail reception followed by the dinner and an awards ceremony, and will be capped off by special guest speaker Terry Jones, founder of Travelocity and Kayak.
The awards ceremony is one of the event’s main highlights, where the following honors will be presented to three industry leaders:
RISMedia’s ‘On the Shoulders of Giants’ Award
Sponsored by RE/MAX and presented by Mike Ryan, executive vice president, RE/MAX LLC
The ‘On the Shoulders of Giants’ Award was created to recognize those individuals whose efforts, works, deeds and character exemplify superior achievements in and for the real estate industry, yet whose efforts often go unnoticed.
RISMedia’s Real Estate Leadership Award
Sponsored by Buffini & Company and presented by Brian Buffini, chairman & founder, and Dermot Buffini, CEO, Buffini & Company
The Real Estate Leadership Award is designed to honor an industry visionary who embraces innovation and exercises resilience to blaze new paths to success for real estate professionals and consumers alike.
RISMedia’s Tech Titan Award

The Tech Titan Award is presented to brokerage leaders who have demonstrated an exceptional ability to adapt and integrate new and innovative tools and services within their organization to improve and enhance the overall consumer experience.
Following the awards ceremony, guests will enjoy a special guest appearance and keynote address by Jones, founder of Travelocity.com, founding chairman of Kayak.com and now chairman of the new startup, WayBlazer.com and managing principal of ON Inc, a consultancy he founded to help companies in their transition to the digital economy.
