I’ve gotten a few “tips” from publicists to let me know that their clients are speaking at this CyberConvention, but I’ve not heard a blip out of the RE.net about this online event going on this week. Is it just a big sales event? Is the expectation that the presentations will be irrelevant or outdated?
I’m only vaguely familiar with the people putting it on, the Real Estate Cyberspace Society, but their website appears genuine enough, if not somewhat dated.
My initial reaction is to start out skeptical that the event has much value as it appears that this “cyber” convention has not generated any excitement from the active blogging community. But to their credit they’ve managed to get some big name speakers (Chairman of RE/MAX, CEO of eNeighborhoods, President of R.com, etc.), so I’m thinking there must be something more to this event. Maybe the whole thing would make more sense if I knew just a bit more about the history of this event… 🙂
