7 Tips to Make the Most of Real Estate Conferences and Trade Shows

1. Set Clear Objectives

To make the most of your trade show experience, always ensure that you have clear objectives for attending. Whether it's securing a one-on-one meeting with a specific individual, networking at an after-party with leading real estate innovators, or pitching a partnership to a targeted company, having a clear plan of action is crucial.

Knowing your goals before arriving at the event will help ensure that you have a fruitful and productive time at every expo.

2. Research and Plan

Before the event, do your research (or have a virtual assistant do it for you). Compile a list of companies and individuals from whom you intend to obtain business cards, identify soirées you plan to attend, and gather pictures and videos for your content bank

Remember to create a checklist outlining which sessions to attend, jot down any questions you wish to ask, and determine how you will introduce yourself to everyone you meet.

3. Perfect Your Elevator Pitch

Expos and trade shows offer infinite networking opportunities, especially with everyone you can meet there. Don’t forget to practice your elevator pitch so that it’s ready and perfect at all times. You never know who you can meet at a conference.

4. Utilize the Event App

Some conferences also build an app for their attendees, so make sure to download it before the event and familiarize yourself with its unique features. Having the app ensures you're always in the right place at the right time, even when discovering new sessions or after-parties!

5. Collect Business Cards and Follow up

Firstly, ensure you bring enough business cards for the entire conference. Throughout the event, gather as many as possible, but make sure to follow up on how you plan to connect with the people you've just met!

6. Engage on Social Media

Real estate events are also a hotspot for social media engagement! Let your followers know what you’re doing and provide them with a glimpse of the event from your perspective. It's also an excellent way to connect with other attendees whom you haven't yet met in person!

7. Attend Social Events

After-parties and invite-only gatherings are tied to nearly every major conference on this list. Besides attending breakout sessions, find other gatherings with opportunities to expand your network with people who can help you grow and innovate!

Gear Up for Real Growth

Attending a real estate event is always a great way to invest in yourself and your business's growth. However, work never stops in a competitive market. Consider outsourcing tasks to a virtual assistant to ensure that your backlog doesn't accumulate while you expand your knowledge and connections.

Beyond trade shows and expos, having a virtual assistant will also positively impact your daily productivity and overall output. Witness your audience, leads, and revenue grow with the assistance of a real estate virtual assistant from Virtudesk!
