“The Place To Do International Business”
Known as “The Place To Do International Business,” the three-day, award-winning Congress will feature world-renowned speakers and presentations highlighting how local and U.S. Realtors can reach the increasingly crucial foreign buyer.

The Congress is expected to draw more than 200 U.S. and international professionals seeking to learn about market conditions in Florida, the U.S. and internationally; to gain powerful marketing insights; to connect with real estate professionals from around the world and to generate business transactions now and in the future.
