In January this year, we held the first Property Portal Watch Workshop in New York.  This was attended by 50 people from 13 different countries representing 33 different portal sites.   It was a fantastic session with frank and open discussion on a variety of topics.  It's now time to get together again.

Today's business world is rapidly changing.  Each day it provides opportunities and challenges for the owners and operators of property portals around the world.

 These include:

  • Where can I cut costs to ride out the financial storm?
  • Can I really compete with the market leaders?
  • Where do I get my next injection of funding?
  • Will the free to list models really work?
  • What impact will Google have on portal sites?
  • What new products are coming and should portal sites invest in them?
  • And so on ...

Answering these questions alone is not easy, so we thought we would again hold a workshop to discuss them as a group.

Property Portal Watch has once again teamed with the folk at Inman News to create the Property Portal Watch Workshop - a free, one day workshop for the owners and operators of property portals from around the world. It will be held on the 4th August 2009, at the Palace Hotel, San Francisco, the day before the Real Estate Connect SFO conference.

Over the course of the day, we plan to run a series of sessions covering:

  • Property Portal Strategy
  • Sales and Marketing to Agents
  • Consumer Marketing to drive Traffic
  • Product Directions and Development

The Property Portal Watch Workshop is a great chance for property portal operators from around the world to get together and discuss the key every day issues that face their businesses.

Not only is Property Portal Watch Workshop free, but we have organised 25 free passes to the Real Estate Connect Conference itself - a value of nearly $900 each.  They way we plan to distribute these is via a lottery.  Therefore, everyone who has registered as wanting to attend the Workshop by the 14th June, will go into the draw to win one of the 25 free passes to the Real Estate Connect Conference.  Everyone who is not successful in the lottery, will be able to purchase a pass to the conference for the heavily discounted rate of US$299.  Make sure you register your interest today by sending an email to

The Inman News Real Estate Connect conference is the world's preeminent conference for those interested in the internet and its effect on the real estate industry. The team at Property Portal Watch have been avid attendees of the conference over the years and have participated on many of the panels.
