Boston is home to many things: the Red Sox, Harvard University, even the first subway car in America. And for the first time since 1929, it’s home to the National Association of REALTORSÂ® (NAR) Conference & Expo from Nov. 2-5, 2018.
Learn from industry leaders, network with over 20,000 REALTORSÂ® and have fun in one of the oldest cities in the U.S. With more than 100 educational sessions discussing top trends in real estate, opportunities to meet new friends and exchange ideas, plus special events like the first-ever REALTORSÂ® Relief Run that benefits the REALTORSÂ® Relief Foundation and other local charities, there’s a lot to see and do at this year’s REALTORSÂ® Conference & Expo.
For manyâ€”myself includedâ€”one highlight of the conference is browsing the industry’s largest trade show with more than 400 exhibitors. With so many exhibitors to see, we hope you’ll stop by the NAR Booth No. 1131. The NAR booth is the heartbeat of the expo floor and features an open floor plan that makes it easy to engage with the products and services NAR has to offer its members. (For more information about these members-only resources, visit www.nar.realtor.)
To enhance your marketing efforts, start online and power your real estate business with .realtorâ„˘ and .realestateâ€”two top-level domains designed to support you and everything you do. Learn how you can gain access to the exclusive .realestate member pre-sale, ending November 16.

If technology is your thing, the Realtors Property ResourceÂ® (RPRÂ®) folks can show you how to use the platform’s comprehensive data, powerful analytics and client-friendly reporting. And you’ll want to take a tour of your personal dashboard on the NAR Member Center to see your individual member card and a consolidated calendar of events from your national, state and local associations.
