Don’t forget, rebarcampAtlanta 2011 is in just 4 days!  We are working to make this event even better than last year.

We wanted to pass along a few reminders and a little about scheduling…

  • Registration will open at 8:30am on Friday
  • Opening remarks and a call for topics will run from about 9:00am until about 9:20.
  • Topic sessions should start at about 9:30.  We will have the first round of sessions pre-set.  (We’ll be voting on the first round here).
  • Each topic session will last about 50 minutes, with a 10 minute break between.
  • Lunch will be from about 12:20 until 2:00.  There are several places to eat VERY close to The Mansour Center… there will be maps.  And if your company would like to advertise on the maps, we have spaces available.
  • The afternoon topic sessions will kick off at 2:00.
  • There will be a short wrap-up at about 4:50

 

Sponsorship rock

There are still tickets available.  Until Wednesday evening, they are only $17.50.  After that, Late Registration will be available at the event for $25 (sorry, but we won’t be able to take credit card payments on site… we can take cash or checks at the event).  There will be late registration tickets on the site after the regular tickets go off sale up until about the beginning of the event on Friday.  They will be $26.61 to help cover EventBrite Fees.

 

As with most rebarcamps, we are actively looking for volunteers to lead topic sessions.  You DON’T have to be “the expert” in order to lead a session.  Rather, you can be a moderator/facilitator/curious sort and get the whole group involved.

There are also some sponsorship spots still open.  email Lane@rebcatlanta.com if you are interested in becoming a sponsor.  More sponsorship information is also available on out Sponsorship Page.

 

We can’t wait to see you!

Don’t Let It Get Away…

rebcATL is starting in just over a week.  And the regular tickets will only be available until next Wednesday.  After that, only Late Registration will be allowed.  Granted, at only $25 for late registration, it isn’t as bad as some other conferences… but that extra few bucks could buy lunch.

We are going to have a BLAST!  In the next few days we will be putting together the first round of sessions… but after that, it will be WIDE OPEN.  Any and every real estate related topic will be up for grabs.  We can talk about technology, short sales, FaceBook, foreclosures, Twitter and guerrilla marketing.  The only limit is YOUR imagination.

If you don’t already have your tickets, get over to the ticket page before you forget…

And if you are interested in sponsoring… we can work that out, too.

The Big Announcement… Date, Location

The Big Chicken

We promised it yesterday, and announced it shortly after that on our FaceBook Page… and we even loaded the info up on the sidebar here. We have secured the date and venue for rebcAtlanta 2011. 

This year’s rebarcamp event will be on Friday, October 28th, 2011 at the Mansour Center in Marietta, GA, from 9:00am until 5:00pm with a suitable break for lunch.  And speaking of lunch, the Big Chicken is within walking distance…  That’s right, THE Big Chicken.  World Famous.

Just like last year, we won’t know exactly what is going to happen until YOU start telling us what you want to talk about.  The topics will be wide ranging and real estate related.  This year, though, we will be setting up a few sessions.  They will be voted on here and on our FaceBook Page, so there are still discoveries to be made.

But that’s not all…  Unlike last year, there is plenty of free parking.  There are also several restaurants around the venue.  Speaking of the venue… it is newer and bigger than last year’s host.  All of these things together should make this year’s event absolutely rock.

Tickets are available here.  But don’t wait too long…  We are running an early bird special, and it won’t last.  And as always, stay tuned for more details…  They’ll be here and on FaceBook.  they might even show up on Twitter.

Are You Ready for rebcATL 2011?

We aren’t… but we are working on it.  there should be an announcement soon giving the date.  We have just finished finalizing the sponsorship packages, and are just nailing down a few details with the venue.

This years event will be in late October, and it is going to be a BLAST.  In addition to the new venue, in a new area, there are loads of new technologies to talk about, as well as lots of changes in the real estate business.  And for rebc, nothing is off-limits.

We won’t know what all of the sessions are until the morning of the event, but we will have some ideas.  Since last year, mobile technologies have made a huge leap forward.  iPads were almost impossible to find, there were no Android Tablets and QR codes were all of the rage… and just hitting the collective conscience of the real estate profession.

Here we are a year later, iPads are in their second generation, there are several competitors, EVERYONE knows what an app is, QR codes are old hat… and hardly a rage and short sales are actually starting to take less than 6 months.

Obviously, there are lots of things to discuss in the real estate world… and they aren’t all about technology.

Stay tuned.

BTW, early birds will do better than getting a worm… they will get the best rate on tickets.

Generally, rebarcamps follow a fairly predictable pattern… but that is the ONLY thing that is predictable about them.  But here is a preliminary schedule…  This is VERY subject to change as the event draws near, and we will certainly have a final schedule available at the event.
