Yes, BarCamp is an unusual name for a conference, and no, it isn’t held at a bar (although we will have pre- and post- “networking events” for your enjoyment). BarCamp is an un-conference, a place where the agenda is set by the attendees. In the past, the sessions were typically centered around technology, social networks and the like. While there will still be a LOT of great information about technology and how it can help our business, we want to bring real estate back to the center of discussions. For instance, we hope for people to share information about short sales, MARS, prospecting, etc., etc.
Yes, it’s true, the most awesome real estate learning and networking event of the year is FREE to attend. Heck, even the lunch is FREE. All we ask is that you consider bringing a canned food (or small monetary) donation for the Desert Mission Food Bank and that you come to participate. This RE BarCamp WILL involve a LOT of open discussions.
With the great support of real estate professionals and amazing sponsors like AAR, SAAR, PAR, SEVRAR, WMAR and ARMLS, as well as some of our title partners, leading real estate brokerages and more, RE BarCamp is truly a special event.
Having an event like this in a baseball stadium is a great way to have some fun while learning and sharing information in a way most people are not used to. Making classrooms out of a press box or a clubhouse is pretty darn cool. This year, we have upped our game to add more space to the rooms to accommodate everyone. Remember, come hungry for knowledge and willing to share your expertise with others.
Please be sure to RSVP for BarCamp and join us April 8th at Scottsdale Stadium!
