Showcasing its increasing influence in the industry, RESAASServices (CNSX:RSS), the social network designed for real estate professionals, has been chosen to power the Midwest Tech Fair upcoming event in Cincinnati, Ohio this August.
"We're looking forward to having RESAAS power our upcoming Midwest Tech Fair," said president of the Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors, Kevin Kelly. "Not only will this be a great addition to our event, but RESAAS will also help to educate our REALTORS on a forward-thinking social platform that has been created specifically for the real estate industry itself."
Speakers, sponsors and attendees at the Midwest Tech Fair will be provided with profile pages on RESAAS, and will be networked together in a private group to communicate and share information both during the event, as well as before and after. RESAAS says it will also host breakout sessions during the event to educate attendees.
RESAAS, whose social network is designed to allow real-time updating of property listings as well as the ability to sync with social media sites such as Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and Twitter, is growing steadfast in its popularity, continually adding broker after broker to its platform across the U.S. and Canada, and digitally powering real estate events nationwide.
Known as real estate broadcasts, RESAAS' reblasts engine automatically generates all of an agency's real estate workflow into social content that is instantly pushed out to the RESAASplatform and other social networks. Last month, the company said it planned to raise $2 million to meet with demand and expand its platform into Europe.
"The Midwest Tech Fair at its core is about how technology can empower the real estate professional, making it a perfect fit for RESAAS," said CMO of RESAAS, Michael St. Hilaire. "It is also key for us to continue building on the momentum we established in the Midwest at the MREDpalooza show."
Indeed, aside from the MREDpalooza show, the company has powered a host of real estate events this year, including Inman News' Real Estate Connect conference in San Francisco. It also recently signed a deal to power a slate of upcoming conferences, partnering with Xplode Conference to power events to be held this year in Boca Raton, Beverly Hills, Dallas, Jacksonville and Atlanta.
The Midwest Tech Fair 2013 is hosted by the Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors, with the Northern Kentucky and Dayton Associations as direct partners.
The event, which will take place on August 22nd, in Cincinnati, Ohio, has attracted such speakers as Travis Robertson, president of R2 Coaching and Training, Jeff Lobb, VP of technology and innovation at Exit Realty Corp, and chief creative officer at Agent Evolution Nicole Nicolay.
