ReBarCamp Returns to RRAR Sept. 10

A reminder to all participants: the second annual Real Estate Bar Camp RDU (ReBarCamp RDU) will be held Friday, Sept. 10 from 9:15 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. at the Raleigh Regional Association of REALTORS® headquarters at 111 Realtors Way in Cary. Though this event is sold out, there is a wait list available for signups for a cost of $21.49 (includes ticket fee and catered lunch).

This “un-conference” is a one-day “get-together” of some of the smartest social media and marketing thought leaders around the country regarding real estate. It is a great opportunity for real estate professionals to learn how to better utilize social media and online technologies in their businesses. Anyone can attend, even non-RRAR members.

The first ReBarCamp RDU occurred last fall with 325 attendees from 17 states. We had 26 sessions that covered such topics as Twitter, SEO, Facebook, Building Community, Beginning Bloggers and much more. This year offers the following new activities and sessions:

• A pre-registration tweet-up
• A manned “area” for folks to ask specific questions of a Jedi one on one (like the “Genius Bar” at Apple Stores)
• A large tent on the patio for overflow attendance at certain sessions
• An announcement of the winners of the “Carolina Battle of the Real Estate Blogs”
• A post-event wrap party

Because the event is sold out, parking will be at a premium, so attendees should come early and perhaps car pool to ReBarCamp RDU. There will be a pre-registration party on the patio at AN New World Cuisine restaurant – for more details on that, contact Eleanor Thorne at 919-649-5057 or via Twitter at @isellmoney.
