Southern California Building Industry Show coming up

Today in the mail I received the brochure for the 2009 edition of the "Building Industry Show" produced by the Building Industry Association of Southern California. It will be held on November 19th and 20th (with some pre-show activities on the 18th) at the Long Beach Convention Center.

There are some new features at this year's show, including the following:

Town Square - a new venue, right on the show floor, boasting its own line-up of education, networking and business prospects. I will be speaking at the Town Square as well as moderating the panel "Design-Plan-Build" on Thursday, November 19th from 1:30-3pm.

BIS Roundtable - engage in lively conversations that are relevant to your business, share ideas and brainstorm solutions to today's most pressing issues; topics include building, development/high density, green, land acquisition/finance, sales & marketing/social media.

"REO Expo" - BIS has partnered with REOMAC and other REO-related groups to offer a "show within a show" to create new partnerships, collaborate with those working in the REO market, and to diversify existing businesses. Also included in the show will be an REO track of educational seminars.

I will be speaking on Friday, November 20th from 9-10:30am on "Residential, Commercial & REO Forecasts."

Regional Realtor Palooza - a one-stop co-op where builders and real estate agents can network to sell homes including co-op programs, builder financing & incentives and selling standing inventory (Friday 8-9am).

REO Property Auction - the first live auction BIS has ever held on the show floor of foreclosed homes for those looking to invest (Thursday and Friday from 4-6pm).

Center Stage - sponsored by Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, real estate coach Mike Ferry will discuss how new home agents and co-op brokers can work together. In addition, a series of workshops and networking events will be offered.
