Preparing for a CRE Conference in NYC
Some real estate professionals attend conferences on a regular basis, while others only every few years or so. If it’s been awhile since you’ve gotten into “conference mode,” it’s a smart idea to understand how your particular conference will be organized so you don’t miss out on important opportunities.
Here are a few tips for preparing for your next real estate conferences in NYC.
- Choose a few sessions and workshops you want to attend before arriving
- Sign up for event email alerts to receive notifications about important updates
- Plan to attend as many networking events as possible to connect with industry pros
- Dress to impress!
- Take lots of notes and consider blogging or posting on social media to share your experience
- Schedule in some downtime to explore the city and avoid conference burnout

Just because you’re attending a conference doesn’t mean that your daily workload comes to a halt. Many busy real estate professionals need to keep up with their work even on conference days, which is why temporary office spaces in NYC are so popular.
