HAR extends sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of our speakers, sponsors and attendees for helping to make The BIG e a tremendous success. We had a great time learning and networking with fellow industry leaders and hope that all of you did as well. Go through that conference bag today and pull out those business cards from the people you met and continue your conversations!
The BIG e took place October 25 with more than 600 people in attendance. The education program included topics such as increasing sales, mobile apps, free tools, legal issues and more. Our annual meeting took place in Houston at the City Centre Norris Conference Center. It was clear throughout the event that the combination of the valuable information, beautiful surroundings and networking opportunities combined to create another powerful experience for HAR members.
We are proud to have been able to bring together some of the top speakers, and industry leaders. All of our speakers this year presented programs that aligned with the theme ‘Educate – Empower – Enlighten’. Thom Singer, this year’s Event Catalyst, led off the conference with a very motivating address, encouraging networking that will continue beyond the closing remarks of the conference.
Keynote speaker Verl Workman focused on the importance of really embracing sales. Many other individuals contributed to the overall success of the program this year as well and we appreciate the time and effort that each contributed.
The BIG e also thanks all its generous financial supporters for their participation in this year’s conference.These companies helped support our conference and brought along hundreds of programs and services that were designed to meet the unique needs of the real estate industry. We could not possibly do what we do without the long-term support of our corporate members and endorsed vendors.
Lastly, we couldn’t put on such a high-quality conference without the talent and expertise of the HAR staff. These fine people, along with all our other consultants are proud to serve our members and are available to assist you at any time. Thank you to all of them for a job well done.
