Jack Conway, Realtor recently sponsored and participated in Real Estate Bar Camp Boston 2011. The unique technology seminar drew hundreds of local real estate professionals to the Back Bay Events Center for day-long learning and networking. Several Conway agents and members of the management team joined the event.
“We were so excited to be a part of this, and proud to be a sponsor,” said Conway Regional Manager Peter Ruffini. “It was a chance to learn and hear from some really knowledgeable and innovative people in the industry.”
The concept for RE BarCamp came from a technology BarCamp event held in San Francisco. Wikipedia defines a barcamp as: an international network of user generated conferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants. Every session is not planned out in advance. Nobody is paid to deliver a session. Anybody can deliver a session and attendees are strongly encouraged to participate.
Long thought of as a forward-thinking company, Conway has positioned itself as a leader in technology with a successfully redesigned wesbite that possesses cutting edge tools for agents and the brokerage. The REBar Camp Boston was a chance to learn more about social media and other ways for the company to engage with customers.
“We heard from some of the best and brightest local people in social media, SEO strategy and online customer service,” said Al Becker, Conway’s director of marketing. “It was important to be there, and be familiar with these strategies.”
