Over 200 real estate associations and organizations worldwide have joined to sponsor this unique virtual event which is produced by the Real Estate CyberSpace Society with over 9000 real estate professional members from 28 countries. Many prominent real estate organizations and the five major real estate on-line media sources have pulled together to make the Fourth Annual production of this event cost free to attendees.

Major Technology Partners are CCBN and The Tech Hotline. Official Sponsors are The Warren Group, iSucceed, and RealtyU.

Society Executive Director, John M. Peckham III said "Like the three previous annual events which drew 20,800 and 32,463 and 41,286 attendees respectively and have featured over 90 national speakers, the 2005 On-line Convention brings real estate professionals all of the excitement and features of a "hard floor" convention. This year, in addition to Keynoters Ferrara and Young, attendees will learn from over 30 top-notch nationally recognized speakers such as Allen Hainge, Michael Russer and Stefan Swanepoel, from top notch agents Alice Held, Judy McCutchin and Ira Serkes, and also from top industry leaders like 2004 NAR President Walt McDonald, Jim Sherry and John Tuccillo."

"This years event features networking centers including an array of discussion rooms at selected Expo Booths, a "Speak with the Speakers" Section and a 24 hour "Ticker Tape" featuring special announcements regarding events, exhibitor chat room openings, special drawings and speaker chat times."

"As Internet state of the art progresses, Peckham concluded, all of the elements of a "hard floor convention" will be there. As always at the On-Line Convention, the only thing missing will be out of pocket costs for airfare, hotel bills, lost shoe leather, aching muscles, travel hassle, registration fees - and time away from home!"
