ATTN REALTORS: RE BarCamp Orange County is Right Around The Corner

By
Real Estate Agent with Harmon Enterprises

I wanted to invite you all to RE BarCamp Orange County!  Hard to believe that our event is next week (August 19th, 2010).  If you are a Realtor in Southern California, you won't want to miss it.  We've got a great venue at UC Irvine, an outstanding group of active participants (including some Active Rain regulars such as Jeff Dowler), and a generous group of sponsors who have made it possible for you to attend for free

Are you unfamiliar with RE BarCamp?  If so, check out our event website for further details which includes this description of the gathering:

RE BarCamp is often described as an informal gathering of like minded people. Others refer to it as an “un-conference”. In the case of RE BarCamp OC, we will gather to discuss how technology and social media can benefit our real estate business. There is no set agenda or schedule for the day (this makes a lot of RE BarCamp “newbies” uncomfortable…if this is you, see the next paragraph). The sessions get determined the day of by the attendees who show up for the event. This ensures that the conversations at RE BarCamp are around topics that are of interest to the attendees. RE BarCamps have also historically pulled a lot of innovative real estate professionals – the movers and shakers of the space – you know, people who are trying and doing really interesting things. The networking alone makes the day rewarding. In addition, session are sometimes great, even outstanding. Sessions are also sometimes not so great. It’s all up to the attendees and their active participation in the day. We’ve been successful in securing enough sponsorship to make this event free to attend. The culture of RE BarCamp is that it is a vendor pitch free zone and this is expressed to event sponsors prior to accepting their sponsorship commitment. This is a key element in facilitating great discussions amongst attendees who don’t have to sit through hours of sponsor sales pitches in the midst of the days content.

Here are the event specs.  Be sure to RSVP and please help us spread the word.  Look forward to seeing you there!
