What is REBarCamp Orlando and Why should You Go?

REBar Camp is coming to Orlando this August 8th, 2012.  I know a few of our Florida ActiveRain members will be there! 

If you have never attended a REBarCamp, you will be in for a big treat!  REBarCamp is fast and furious, informative, educational, and most of all fun, fun, fun!  Don't be surprised to see some familiar faces in the crowd!  When I attended last year, I met Katerina Gasset, Jeremy Blanton, Mike Mueller, Cyndee Haydon, Petra Norris, just to name a few!

How to describe REBarCamp?  Well, it definitely is not your traditional educational offering. It is a networking event, it is educational and it comes with a twist! Maybe "organized chaos" would be a better description.  Or at least it feels like chaos to the first-timer.  

You see, there is no preset schedule of events.  Except lunch maybe. There are no predefined topics.  Speakers and presenters may come from among the attendees.  

Still, there is a method to the madness.  The organizers including Debbie Kirkland who also is an ActiveRainer know how to get the event going and keep it on the right track. 

REBarCamp Orlando Schedule by Silvia Dukes

As they arrive, attendees are asked to define the topics for sessions, and anyone who feels they can speak to a topic or make a presentation may get the chance to do so!  Needless to say, the topics are extremely varied, they can be technical, social media related, distressed sales, or any other topic that somehow relates to real estate!

REBarCamp Attendee Silvia DukesIn some way, it's a bit like ActiveRain.  We learn from each other all the time, share our knowledge and experiences across a multitude of topics and if you have a question, someone will have an answer!  

Did I mention REBarCamp is FREE?  

There is still time to register.  Go to REBarCamp Orlando and sign up or come to the Marriott World Center in Orlando and join us on August 8th for the funniest networking and educational event you've ever been to!

Last year was great.  This year promises to be phenomenal!

See you there!

Silvia - Our area is having their first RE BarCamp at the end of the month.  I had blow it off, but now that I've read about it from someone who has been to one, I'm going to re-think going.  Great post!

Laura, all I can say is GO! It's free so you don't have nothing to lose but so much to gain!  And you will have fun doing it!  Just be prepared, first time can get a bit overwhelming until you figure out what's going on.  Have fun!

Silvia--the closest REBar Camp was six hours away, but maybe Buffalo or Cleveland one of these days.

So THAT'S what goes on at a REBar camp.  I was never quite sure.  It does sound like fun and a good chance to meet fellow Rainers and more!  Hope you have a good time there.

Silvia, I remember you mentioning this last year at Convention, and I was able to attend the morning session with Cyndee Haydon.  Very memorable.  Every time I think I am getting a handle on the new stuff, I get blown away by how much more there is.  Gen Y is leading the way and I learned soooo much.

Mary, hopefully, one of these days there will be one closer to you as well!

Tom, it sure is!

Georgina, it was a great day with lots of interesting topics.

Joan, thanks.  I think it's a great idea to come together once a month for those mini sessions!

Barbara-Jo, there will always be a next time!
