E very gathering of real estate inves- tors is a highly concentrated area of opportunity. Perhaps the most popular venue of all is the real estate investing conference or expo event, wherein educators, vendors, and hundreds of investors converge in one location to learn, connect, influence, and, hopeful- ly, do some deals.

In today’s highly connected world there are many, many ways to leverage event at- tendance like a pro both on- line and in person. Below are Think Realty’s top three pro tips for getting the most out of a real estate expo. 1. SIGN YOUR NAME ON EVERY LINE If you attend a real estate conference in person, you’ll be provided with am- ple opportunities to give the hosts, the exhibitors, the educators, and other in- vestors your contact information. Hand reers launched, and their portfolios padded, take a minute to review these tips. Odds, are, you simply are

it over! Check out all of the available conference materials from exhibitors and speakers online. Most will provide you with a way to sign up for more ed- ucational materials online or otherwise contact them. Attend every session that you pos- sibly can and actively engage with the speaker. Keep an ear out for real estate investing strategies that you can incorporate into your own investing toolbox. Take the time to speak personally to each presenter. You 2. ACTIVELY ATTEND AS MANY SESSIONS AS POSSIBLE

Just a note: Many conferences allow attendees to access one or more custom apps that provide additional network- ing opportunities as well as advance information about the conference. 3. LOOK AND BE PROFESSIONAL When attending a real estate confer- ence, you’re going to want to look your best. While you might forgo a suit and tie, the odds are good that you’ll wear a clean shirt, comb your hair, and make sure your breath and your business cards are fresh. This way, you feel con- fident and are more likely to network effectively and prolifically at the event. Freshen up your online presence as well. Every social media profile should feature a nice, professional picture in place for the duration of the event. Cut- ting-edge events usually stream high- lights on Facebook Live, so you may get to interact with other investors possibly the presenter. The image they see when you are visible online should be clean cut and professional, not that Throwback Thursday picture of you doing keg stands on Spring Break in college. Once you have mastered the art of truly maximizing real estate conference attendance, you will find that these events no longer feel like work and are really fun. •
