The IREM 2019 Global Summit - Six Reasons to Go

May 17, 2019 | IREM

The 2019 IREM Global Summit is where real estate management professionals get together to learn, grow and advance their careers. If you’re a real estate management professional interested in making new business contacts, learning the latest trends in our industry and building relationships, here are six reasons you should attend the IREM Global Summit:

  1. Meet your colleagues. Speak to any IREM Member who’s been to the Global Summit and they’ll tell you how meeting and networking with colleagues from around the world is the best part. And this is the only time they come together in one place.

  2. Keep learning! Global Summit education sessions are designed around you. They explore topics like workplace violence, empowering women and technology innovation, and they give you a chance to weigh in on these issues. More than 400 IREM volunteers are also coming to the Global Summit for committee and board meetings, including the annual meeting of the Governing Council.

  3. Be inspired. It’s hard not be inspired by this year’s keynote speakers, digital expert Erik Qualman and the compelling John O’Leary.

  4. Celebrate excellence! Excellence in real estate management is honored with the Real Estate Management Excellence (REME) Awards, presented to the best of the best in real estate management. The outstanding contributions made by REME Award winners may spark ideas you can apply to your own business.

  5. Have fun! This year IREM is throwing an opening night party with entertainment by the Nashville-based Chris Weaver Band. And we’ll celebrate the inauguration of 2020 IREM President Cheryl Ann Gray, CPM®—the first international member to be elected an IREM officer—at the Inaugural Gala and REME Awards.

  6. Visit San Francisco. Mark Twain said he was always treated better in San Francisco than he actually deserved. You should find out for yourself.

And lastly, it’s unforgettable.
The IREM Global Summit is a chance for you to connect with your IREM peers, be inspired and advance your career. As IREM membership grows and new chapters open, you can meet members from Canada, Japan, Korea, China, and Brazil and even from the newest chapter in South Africa. You’ll probably find you have a lot more in common with property managers from international chapters than you thought you did.

Registration is open—the sooner you register, the more you save. See you there!
