Highlights from NAR Annual in Orlando

November 12 2012

nar annual twitterToday marked the final day of the NAR Annual conference in Orlando. Attendees left with new connections, new ideas, and tons of inspiration to push them to new heights in 2013.

We followed the conference on social media--the perfect medium for such a tech-oriented event! We saw lots of Instagram photos (like Chris Nichols' pic of NAR Presidentpic of NAR President Moe Veissi), iPad giveaways, educational sessions on digital marketing, and so much more. We were especially impressed by NARconferencelive.comNARconferencelive.com--a fantastic site full of up-to-date conference happenings!

For those of you who couldn't make the conference--and for those who did, but couldn't possibly attend every session--we've compiled a list of Twitter updates from the conference. Each one is a bite-size nugget of great information.
