Once again, after a lot of work and a ton of meetings the Lucky Striker Social Media Club has done it again. We are all locked and loaded for the 2014 Real Estate BarCamp next month! It’s going to be a great time and there are a few surprises in store for all of you so please make sure you check back regularly to find out all about them. I will say that this RE BarCamp will do things that no other has done in the past so it’s all very exciting. First, some quick facts:
When: Tuesday January 14th, 2014
Time: 8:00 AM till 4:00 PM (happy hour and dinner to follow but more on that later)
Where: The Roger Smith Hotel (48th Street and Lexington Avenue in Manhattan NYC)
Attendees: All of the best and brightest our industry has to offer. That means you so bring your A game and get your geek on! Space is extremely limited this year so if you are going to spread the word (and we hope you do) please make sure you are telling people that are going to attend, participate and engage. This event is all about interaction and learning from one another!
My Annual Plea
I don’t want to beat a dead horse here but every year we have done this event, it has gotten better and better. This year we expect the same. Another thing to mention is that every year we have done this it has SOLD OUT. When this happens it’s bittersweet. On the one hand, it’s great when you know there will be a great big crowd of really great people coming together to do great things. On the other, you feel bad every time you receive an email from someone who forgot to buy their ticket or couldn’t find the time. There is always a long waiting list for REBCNY. Fortunately we have a really great waiting list system in place with Eventbrite this year. Here’s the thing, I don’t want you to be on that list.
Unlike many other BarCamps, we have to charge people a small amount to attend REBCNY simply because we wouldn’t be able to afford to put this event on solely based on sponsorship money. New York is expensive – ridiculously expensive. We do our best to keep the costs down as much as possible. We even release Early Bird Tickets at below cost for folks that are concerned about the funds. The thing is, it’s still not free. Because of this we get about a 1% no-show rate. Other BarCamps tend to have a much higher rate so your odds are better with their waiting lists. PLEASE, get your tickets now.
The number of attendees will be limited to 100 people. Please get in there and register yourselves. We’ve tried to make it as easy as humanly possible to do this by using Eventbrite for our ticketing. Click HERE , register to secure your place, and look for a confirmation email from us. Make sure you bring ID to the event. That’s it.
Another thing that is a bit different this year is that REBCNY will be the day before Inman so you can come on in from out of town one day early and take advantage of this event AND Inman.
We would also like to ask you a favor- come prepared to participate. Since we are limited to a mere 100 people, we need everyone to come with their A game. Start thinking about a session you will want to do. Start talking to your fellow BarCampers to see if they have any ideas or if they want to team up with you to do that session. The big board will be crowded this year and I’m betting that choosing what session you are going to sit in each slot will be tough – and that’s a good thing. It keeps the other sessions honest and it makes it easier to change gears in your session in the event that it’s not going the way it could.
We have had a ton of great success and amazing support from our sponsors BUT we are not done yet. There are still a number of things we need help with. If you, your company, your broker, your uncle, your dog, whoever wants to be a sponsor please contact us HERE and let us know about it. Thank you for all of your continuing support.
We are looking forward to seeing you on January 14th.
