NAREE President Dion Haynes, Washington Post real estate editor, announced that the National Association of Real Estate Editors will host its 53rd Annual Real Estate Journalism Conference in Austin, Texas from June 26 to June 29, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency on Lady Bird Lake. Haynes made the announcement at the conclusion of NAREE's 2018 Las Vegas Conference in June.
NAREE’s 2019 Austin conference location promises a first-hand look at off-the-grid green building juxtaposed with towering downtown redevelopment and its ensuing challenges.
The Hyatt Regency overlooks Austin’s skyscrapers and is just 30 steps from the 10-mile hiking trail that encircles Lady Bird Lake. NAREE’s HQ hotel also offers boating, swimming and myriad other health and fitness options. Conferees can also walk to Austin’s famous “Bat Bridge’ at sunset or head to nearby South Congress' fun and funky dining and shopping haunts, downtown, Rainey Street or Sixth Street.
NAREE University’s peer-to-peer skill-building journalism workshops will be offered at breakfast and lunch each day of the confab. Journalists covering commercial and residential real estate will also hear about future trends and can compare data analytics from economists, industry analysts, developers, builders, brokers and others in panel sessions moderated by NAREE’s award-winning leaders.
NAREE’s 69h annual real estate journalism awards will be presented on Friday, June 28 at the Hyatt. Cutting-edge real estate tours Wednesday and Thursday and nightly networking receptions will round out the program of events. NAREE’s 2019 Austin conference begins at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 26 and concludes on Saturday, June 29 at 10 a.m. Click on "Spring Conference" tab st the top of the home page to see a preliminary conference agenda.
