Sep 15 - 18, (CT)
For several months now, you have been hearing about the Society of Exchange Counselors bringing a National Invitational Marketing Session to Wichita. That event will happen September 15-18, 2019, at the Drury Plaza Broadview Hotel in downtown Wichita. The event is special because of who is attending it and what it does. The Society of Exchange Counselors is an invitation only membership organization consisting of some of the finest minds in the commercial real estate industry. It is a national organization in scope with permanent offices in San Diego, Ca. and members from approximately 37 states.
They produce and execute the best commercial and investment marketing sessions on six occasions every year in different cities from both coasts and anywhere in between. The SEC also has created the Society of Exchange Counselors Educational Foundation and sponsors real estate professional education across the country. We here in Wichita have been benefiting from SEC Ed Foundation courses for many years.
In September of this year, the SEC Marketing Session will begin with a day of education on Sunday Sept. 15. There will be a get acquainted cocktail party on Sunday Evening which is sponsored with the Kansas CCIM Chapter. All Chapter members are invited to attend the cocktail party. On Monday, there will be a Guest Breakfast for all the invited guests attending the meeting. This is pretty much a mandatory event for all new, first time guests. Following the guest breakfast, the marketing meetings will begin, and it will be a serious, fast paced, real estate marketing event that will challenge even the most established pros to keep up with the information flow. The event will break at 5:00 pm each day and conclude on Wednesday afternoon. Many millions of dollars of properties will be offered during the meetings' three days. Many different situations will be exposed and solutions to owners' objectives will be sought.
For quality control and ethical purposes, attendance at an SEC Invitational Marketing Session is by invitation only. Other than the opening night cocktail party you must be invited, register and pay the meeting fees to attend the education and substance of the marketing meetings. The SEC offers a discount of $100 from the meeting fees for first time attendees. The cost of the meeting is $425 for first time attendees and $525 for everyone else. The SEC will be sending out invitations beginning next week so be sure to let me know if you would like to be invited.
This is sure to be a fine event and will replace the normal Kansas CCIM Fall Marketing Session for this year. Call me at 316 992 5246 with any questions. I hope you join us.
