NAREE will hold its 47th Annual Real Estate Journalism conference in Atlanta - a dynamic growth hub city nicknamed “Hotlanta” - on June 5-8, 2013.
The conference will deliver elite speakers and news-filled panels that will generate national real estate news, column fodder, ideas for future stories and social media items.
In 2012, news from the NAREE conference in Denver was trending nationally on Twitter because of the abundance of conference-generated news written by attendees. Twelve CEOs of realty firms, including Re/Max and apartment giant AIMCO, were speakers at NAREE’s last conference and a strong lineup is expected again in 2013.
NAREE University - top-notch sessions of workshops, journalism panel discussions and instructional seminars on professional development and reporter’s technology - has become a major draw. Newspaper staffers, editors, bloggers and freelancers will gain insights and helpful tidbits on everything from using Twitter to the future of newspapers.
NAREE University is one of the top professional development events in journalism. Scores of journalists and industry professionals will be attending the conference, headquartered at the Atlanta Hilton in downtown, within walking distance of major attractions, such as CNN’s studios, Centennial Olympic Park, Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coca-Cola Museum. The MARTA transit system provides quick and affordable trips to the airport and other parts of town. Atlanta is the headquarters of Delta Airlines and the city’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport is ranked as one of the busiest airports in the world.
Highlights of the conference will include the announcement of the winners of NAREE’s 63rd Annual Real Estate Journalism Competition and the unveiling of the results of NAREE’s Bruss Real Estate Book Awards.
NAREE's 17th Annual Meet the Press, a popular event that matches editors and journalists with freelancers and publicists in a quick series of three-minute meetings, will be held Friday afternoon.
Atlanta Hilton is Conference Headquarters
The conference will be headquartered at downtown’s Atlanta Hilton, 255 Courtland St. NE, 30303, only a 15-minute drive from the airport and close to the Atlanta Braves stadium. NAREE has a great rate at the Hilton, making this newsworthy event affordable for every newsroom budget.
The conference sessions will generate a significant amount of news interest as economists, architects, urban planners, brokers, builders and developers discuss contemporary issues impacting development, sales and real estate finance. Topics are expected include the housing market, REITs, multi-family development, foreclosure problems, vacation homes, mortgages, residential brokerage, hotels, shopping center development and much more.
The conference is open to all journalists, authors, editors and communicators covering the broad field of real estate.
