NC REALTORS®’ Executive Committee and Board of Directors recently approved Wilmington, North Carolina, as the site for the 2018 Conference & Expo. Over 1,000 REALTORS®, vendors, partners, staff, and affiliates from across the state are expected to attend, as this is the first time the annual event is being held in the coastal city.
The meetings, events, and Expo will be held at the Wilmington Convention Center, and multiple area hotels will be required for overnight accommodations. Early estimates predict over 1,500 room nights will be secured and will serve as a huge boost to the local and North Carolina economy.
“NC REALTORS® is thrilled to bring the annual Conference & Expo to Wilmington in 2018,” stated Andrea Bushnell, Esq., CEO. “We have thousands of REALTORS® in the coastal areas of North Carolina, and it will be great to bring the event closer to them, while attracting hundreds of other members from around the state to the beautiful eastern North Carolina coast. We aspire to reach and serve members where they are based, and the Conference is just one of many tools NC REALTORS® uses to do so.”
The Wilmington location was selected after seeking member input, and overwhelmingly the membership base wanted an in-state resort location. NC REALTORS® has been hosting an annual Conference for over 50 years, and the event features dozens of membership committee and Board meetings, as well as educational sessions and networking opportunities. Registration information and more details will be posted on the NC REALTORS® website in 2017.
