The new conference boasts a new brand, international speakers, and new website
NC REALTORS®’ new, annual conference, XCHANGE '17, is bigger and better than ever and returns to The Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina, from September 17-19, 2017. This year’s conference is designed to inspire, motivate, and educate more than 1,000 members from across the state. Early estimates predict over 1,000 room nights will be secured, which will serve as a huge boost to the local and North Carolina economy. Additional attendees include corporate partners, sponsors, vendors, staff, and affiliates nationwide.
Elevating the attendee experience was the driver for this year’s theme, “Break the rules, change the game,” and game-changing elements include an exciting new brand with a dedicated website, exclusive speakers, exhilarating activities, and special exhibitors with fresh content in new formats. The Omni Grove Park Inn, with over 55,000 square feet of executive meeting and event space nestled against the Great Smoky Mountains, is the perfect backdrop for a conference slated to break all the rules.
“This year NC REALTORS® is setting the bar high in terms of content, services, and events for our members, particularly with the new concept for the annual conference,” exclaimed Andrea Bushnell, Esq., CEO of NC REALTORS®. “XCHANGE ’17 is like nothing we’ve ever created before, and our members are certain to love it. It reinforces where our members, industry, and association are headed, while encouraging boundaries to be pushed and rules to be bent in the spirit of innovation and positive growth.”
Asheville was selected as the host city after seeking member input and feedback following prior conferences, and this location brings the event home to North Carolina where the bulk of the 38,000 members live, work, and play. NC REALTORS® has hosted an annual conference for over 50 years, and the event features dozens of membership committee and Board meetings, educational sessions, and networking opportunities.
