We’re thrilled to invite you to the Greater Bangor Real Estate, Housing & Land Use Conference with Trade Show, being held at the new Cross Insurance Center – in the Grand Ballroom – on October 31st & November 1st, 2013.

During the day on Thursday, you can attend Pre-Conference Seminars offered in four separate tracks: a CEU track for Realtors, the Business of Landlording track for landlords & those interested in getting into the business, the Professionals track for information on growing your real estate & housing related business, and the Engineers/Land Use Track which offers CEUs for professionals.

Thursday evening’s Opening Reception will feature a self defense demo with Sensei Steve Apsega & Sempai Deb Harman of Maine Traditional Karate, goofy Halloween-themed activities such as the Monster Mash and Broomstick Riding Contest, keynote speaker Paul Mills, JD, offering his thoughts on “Squatters Rights, Rights of Way and the North Pond Hermit”, an hors d’oeuvres buffet, cash bar, networking games, and specials from our trade show vendors.

On Friday, we’ll offer 45-90 minute seminars all day until 2:30pm, along with the trade show, which will be free and open to the public.

The Greater Bangor Real Estate, Housing & Land Use conference will be a great opportunity for sponsors, exhibitors, advertisers and workshop presenters from the following disciplines:

… mortgage brokers, appraisers, bankers, title attorneys, housing inspectors, insurance agents, REALTORs®

… plumbers, electricians, kitchen & bath contractors, pest control agents, movers, flooring & window treatment professionals, landscapers, accountants, lawyers

… property managers, real estate investment groups

… private investors & money lenders

… community development programs, abatement & code enforcement professionals, and more!

Exhibit booths and sponsorships are priced to be affordable for most organizations; more details are available in the Exhibitors Manual.

The show is produced by What a Great Event! (education & training, and events management firm) in tandem with On the Spot Property Management & Building Inspections. The presidents of both organizations (my husband John and I) have extensive experience as residential and commercial landlords & property managers, and are excited to offer this great event!

As with all What a Great Event! conferences, the Greater Bangor Real Estate, Housing and Land Use Conference with Trade Show offers many opportunities for non-profit organizations to fund-raise via ticket sales, volunteering (we donate $10 per approved volunteer hour to the exhibiting non profit of their choice), and through other means.

We would be pleased to speak with you about your possible role in this show!

With Best Regards,

Linda & John Snyder
