Society Executive Director, John M. Peckham III said "Like the four previous annual events which have grown steadily from 20,800 to 40,136 attendees and have featured over 120 national speakers, the 2006 On-line Convention brings real estate professionals all of the excitement and features of a "hard floor" convention. This year, in addition to Keynoter Dalton, attendees will learn from over 30 top-notch nationally recognized trainer/speakers such as: Allen Hainge, Dan Gooder Richard, Michael Russer - Mr. Internet, and Terry Watson; from top notch agents including: Dr. H. Nathan Booth, Mal Duane, Rob Levy, Judy McCutchin and Zahara Mossman. and Real Estate Prognosticators: John Tuccillo and Jim Sherry.
"This years event features networking centers including an array of discussion rooms at selected Expo Booths, a "Rap with the Speakers" Section and a 24 hour "Ticker Tape" featuring special announcements regarding events, exhibitor chat room openings, special drawings and speaker chat times."
"What was considered a curiosity five years ago has now blossomed into the largest real estate event of the year." Peckham concluded, "All of the elements of a 'hard floor convention' will be there in February. As always at the On-Line Convention, the only thing missing will be out of pocket costs for airfare, hotel bills, lost shoe leather, aching muscles, travel hassle, registration fees - and time away from home!"
Registration is now open and agents may now obtain a Complimentary pass to The Fifth Annual National Real Estate On-Line Convention and Exposition.
