This event will potentially be the Largest REBarCamp ever! The BIG DADDY of them all! Last I checked there were over 450 RSVP’s, and more than 30 Corporate Sponsors. I remember attending the very first REBarCamp in San Francisco, then is was Seattle, Texas, New York, and now it’s made it’s way to Denver Colorado. What is it about REBarCamps that has them popping up all over the United States? Is this the next biggest Real Estate Industry Phenomenon since Twitter or what? Have you been to an REBarCamp? Half the battle is just getting there.
“REBarCamp is a One-Day event where passionate real estate industry experts come together to share their knowledge peer to peer. Sessions evolve based on whatever topic one wants to share and whoever wants to learn.”
REBarCamps are successful and growing because of one simple thing…people! It’s the “people” that make these things happen. It’s the “people” who sponsor them, and the “people” who put it all together. It’s the “people” who show up and share with others at their own expense. It’s also the social networking aspect that has turned these REBarCamps into a “must attend” the for the Real Estate Industry. REBarCamp is more than just learning and sharing WEB 2.0 Real Estate Technology and tools, it’s meeting and mingling with some of the finest experts in the Industry.
There will be a “LIVE” streaming video from Broker IPTV, and a Twitter feed (#REBCDEN) so you can be there in “Virtual Real-Time.” I have a gut feeling about this one, it’s going to be huge! So Pack your bag, get in a plane, train, or automobile, and get your butt over there. You don’t want to miss “The Largest and BEST REBarCamp” in the history of these events.
I’m flying out to Colorado tomorrow to be part of this spectacular event. I hope to share some photos, videos, and podcasts while I’m there. Kristal Kraft and others have poured their heart and soul into putting this all together. Please take a moment to stop and thank her and the others including all the great sponsors.
My prediction is that there will have been an REBarCamp in every state by the end of 2009.
It’s not just the sessions, presentations, and the event that make these REBarCamps so valuable, it’s the connections and stuff that happens in the hallways, before, and after that can bring the greatest opportunities, value, and fun. I’m looking forward to seeing you there, and if not physically, then virtually! 🙂
