Realtors See Strong International Activity, Organize Global Real Estate Conference
WASHINGTON (August 7, 2018) — Realtors®, members of the National Association of Realtors®, will travel to Hanoi, Vietnam to join experts in the real estate industry from all over the world to learn, share, connect and transact during the 2018 International Real Estate Conference. Now in its fourth year, IREC will take place at the National Convention Center in Hanoi from September 6-7, with an expo extending from September 8-10. The annual real estate conference brings together top experts to discuss the industry's most pressing trends and is an opportunity for international attendees to make connections with real estate professionals in one of the world's most dynamic regions. "Nearly a quarter of Realtors® reported that they worked with an international client in the last year, even as low inventory and higher home prices continue to affect the U.S. market. Demand from overseas remains strong; foreign buyers purchased a total of $121.0 billion of residential property last year and at a more expensive price than domestic buyers did, a comparison of $292,200 for a foreign median home price and $249,300 for domestic," said NAR President Elizabeth Mendenhall, a sixth-generation Realtor® from Columbia, Missouri and CEO of RE/MAX Boone Realty. This year's event draws upon the success of past events in the Philippines, South Korea and Thailand and includes high-level speakers such as the U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam and a representative from the Vietnamese Prime Minister's office. "Realtors® understand better than anyone that the U.S. real estate market continues to be seen as a safe, secure and profitable place to invest in property. IREC brings together NAR partner associations from all over the world to discuss cross-border opportunities and the many benefits of investing in the U.S. real estate market," Mendenhall said. The conference kicks off with the NAR Global Leadership Summit, an invitation-only meeting where leaders from NAR's bilateral partners will convene to discuss hot topics and trends influencing the industry worldwide. Conference sessions, which are open to all registered attendees, will cover current industry topics such as artificial intelligence; big data, and data analytics; block chain; building construction and design trends; smart cities; global real estate market trends from each region; and more. Over 1,000 conference attendees are expected, and 60,000 are expected to visit the conference exhibit hall. The host for IREC 2018 is the Vietnam National Real Estate Association; NAR is supporting the conference as a strategic partner. The National Association of Realtors® is America's largest trade association, representing 1.3 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

Miami Realtors Partners with Realopedia to Promote South Florida in the Middle East
MIAMI, FL (SEPTEMBER 05, 2016)--The MIAMI Association of REALTORS® (MIAMI) and Realopedia as Global Marketing Partners will promote South Florida and the new global real estate portal at the Middle East's largest and most influential property showcase. MIAMI CEO Teresa King Kinney and MIAMI Chairman Mark Sadek will make a Miami market presentation at the 2016 Cityscape Global event, which will be held Sept. 6-8 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. The MIAMI and Realopedia stand (S3A15) will be located at Sheikh Saeed Hall 3. "The launch of a direct Miami-to-Qatar flight has increased Middle Eastern interest in South Florida real estate," Kinney said. "Investors and home buyers from Dubai and the United Arab Emirates love Miami's vibrant nightlife, art and international business center. The Middle East is part of an increasingly larger array of countries purchasing Miami real estate, and there is great synergy between Miami and Dubai." International transactions play a significant role in the Miami real estate market. About 50 percent of all foreign transactions in Florida take place in Miami-Dade and Broward, and Florida is the top state in the nation for sales to global buyers. Also representing MIAMI in Dubai will be: 2016 Broward Council President Donna Reid of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate and members Arielle di Lella and Donna di Lella of di Lella International Luxury Sales Group, and Mohammed Siddiq of Maverick Equity. The Dubai showcase is part of MIAMI's increased efforts to promote South Florida around the globe. In 2016, MIAMI has participated and/or exhibited and presented at MIPIM in France, FIABCI World Congress in Panama, Gran Salon Inmobiliario in Colombia, China North America Global Summit in China and NAR-India in India. This fall, MIAMI plans to participate and present at FIABCI France, the Salon National de l'Immobilier in Paris and InmoExpo in El Salvador. UAE Increasing Investment in Miami, United States UAE investors have made several high-profile Miami purchases. In February 2015, the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority purchased the Miami Beach EDITION hotel for $230 million. During the same month, a corporate entity linked to Saudi Royalty paid $23 million for a plot on Indian Creek Island. The proposed 1,000-foot SkyRise Miami tower is another project of interest to UAE investors. SkyRise Miami is an EB-5 project, which grants permanent U.S. residency to investors who create at least 10 domestic jobs and contribute at least $500,000 to $1 million in a U.S. business venture. Step America, a Dubai-based company, is seeking SkyRise investors in the Middle East. Driven by its sovereign wealth funds, the Middle East spent $2.7 billion on real estate in the Americas in the first half of 2015, according to CBRE. That's a large percentage of the $11.8 billion total that investors from the Middle East have spent on global real estate during that time period. South Florida was the fourth hottest market in the United States for Middle Eastern investment during the first two quarters of 2015. South Florida's vibrant nightlife, beaches, weather, shopping, booming real estate market and proximity to Latin America are why Dubai has increased its interest in Miami. The launch of a direct Miami-to-Qatar flight in 2014 increased ties between the two regions. Dubai homebuyers can now use their properties here more easily. Dubai's Economic Growth Like Miami, Dubai is a booming city that is a hub for global capital. Dubai is home to more than 20,000 international companies, including offices from 124 of the Fortune 500. Dubai ranked as the eighth-most important city for the ultra-wealthy in 2015, according to the Knight Frank Wealth Report. Miami ranked No. 12 in the same report. Dubai will host the 69th World Real Estate Congress in 2018. Dubai will also be home to the World Expo 2020, which will provide economic stimulus and enhance the city's global brand. Qatar will host the 2022 World Cup, one of the world's most significant sporting events. Cityscape Global: The World's Top Property Showcase for Emerging Markets Now in its 15th year, Cityscape Global is the largest and most influential real estate investment and development event for emerging markets. More than 150 local, regional and international real estate firms are expected to exhibit their projects. Cityscape will host major developers such as Emaar, Dubai Holding, Nakheel, Meydan, Meraas, Dubai South, DAMAC, and Al Marjan Islands, as well as international exhibitors from 30 countries, including significant pavilions from Turkey, Bahrain, the UK, and new participants from Pakistan. About the MIAMI Association of REALTORS®The MIAMI Association of REALTORS® was chartered by the National Association of Realtors in 1920 and is celebrating 96 years of service to Realtors, the buying and selling public, and the communities in South Florida.

Oasis Summit and Lone Wolf Real Estate Technologies Herald Expanded Vision for Top Technology Conference
  CAMBRIDGE, ON - February 20, 2014 – Technology investor James Montgomery and Lone Wolf Real Estate Technologies have announced additions to the lineup of speakers slated to present at OASIS: THE MONTGOMERY SUMMIT. OASIS—an invitation-only event featuring top entrepreneurs and investors, senior level media and technology executives, and leading industry visionaries—will be held March 5-6, 2014 at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica. OASIS speakers added to the conference’s schedule include BlackBerry interim CEO John Chen, bestselling author Deepak Chopra, and tech legend Paul Maritz. Presenting at OASIS for the second time is Golden Globe-nominated actress and Honest Company founder Jessica Alba. Chen, a distinguished world leader in technology and former CEO of Sybase, Inc., was tapped to run BlackBerry in November, 2013. Chopra is America’s preeminent expert on alternative medicine and holistic health, and has authored 65 books; his current focus is the intersection of technology and wellness. Maritz, currently CEO of data firm Pivotal Labs, worked for Microsoft from 1986 to 2000 and was a member of the five-person Executive Committee that managed the company’s explosive growth during that time. In the years since, he has consistently been at the forefront of consumer computing technologies as CEO of VMware and other companies. Honest Co. founder Alba launched her brand of non-toxic baby products at the conference in 2012, and she returns this year after completing a $25 million round of funding. An outgrowth of the hugely popular Montgomery Technology Conference, OASIS makes its debut this year with 150 exceptional presenting companies. These companies will fall into three categories: “First Look” companies that generate less than $10 million in yearly revenues; “Emerging” companies with revenues between $10 million and $50 million; and “Growth” companies whose yearly revenues exceed $50 million. Prior conferences have provided early looks at Facebook, Twitter, Pandora, Splunk, Marketo, Meraki, Exact Target, Rocket Fuel, and other breakout companies. OASIS will have a special focus on creativity and innovation at the intersection of the technology and business worlds. “Lone Wolf has the vision of a complete enterprise solution for the real estate brokerage space. With a client base covering almost 10,000 real estate offices and 230,000 real estate agents, our company is poised to capitalize on the industry footprint we have created. Using a SAAS business model in a vertical niche industry with the potential for big data, our company is in the right position at the right time to present at OASIS.” said Lorne Wallace, CEO of Lone Wolf. Founder Montgomery says his goal with OASIS is to bridge one of the industry’s top insider technology and finance conferences with global thought leadership in innovation and creativity. “Montgomery Summit stakeholders have always relished the atmosphere at the Fairmont Miramar for intimate, high-level business networking and insights,” said Montgomery. “At the same time, these leaders embrace an atmosphere where creativity and innovation can be explored in the context of building great products and companies.” Other speakers previously announced for OASIS include Ashish Thakkar, named World’s Best Young Entrepreneur by the World Entrepreneurship Forum, and Brazilian mining billionaire Bernardo Paz, who will talk about the importance of creativity and innovation through the context of his world-famous art retreat in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil.
