San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 5, 2006
Industry leaders at the San Francisco Real Estate Connect 2006 conference this July will confront a question that has been on the mind of many, “Is real estate ready for honesty?” Real Estate Connect attracts the most powerful and innovative real estate and technology executives because it always addresses the topics these leaders are talking about most.
“In the Web world, the old, slick way of marketing real estate has become the sick way,” says Mike Edelhart, CEO of Inman News. “Consumers want the truth, and they can find it on blogs and other Web sites. How can agents adapt their marketing to survive in this new environment?”
San Francisco Real Estate Connect 2006 will feature three days of sessions that cover topics such as how search engines are changing the real estate landscape; innovations in community building and participatory journalism; what we can learn from the virtual real estate of online gaming worlds; and new business models for the slowing housing market.
More than 50 top innovators and leaders have confirmed as speakers, including Rich Barton of Zillow, Inc.; Craig Newmark of CraigsList; Jeff Jarvis of Buzzmachine.com; Steve Ozonian of HelpUSell.com, Brenda Florida of Century 21 Alliance; and Lockhart Steele of Curbed.com and Gawker.com.
In addition to the main conference, there will be a Real Estate Software Developers’ Day, Real Estate Agent’s Bootcamp, Breakout Sessions, and Innovation Master Classes.
