MLS TECH FAIR 2009 – New York

MLS TECH FAIR 2009 – New York

I am really excited that ActiveRain and the MLS of Long Island have invited me to be a guest speaker and part of their 8th Annual MLS Tech Fair this year.  The days schedule will be filled with great speakers, topics, breakout sessions, and an exhibit hall full of new and exciting products from some of the Top Industry Service Providers.

The list of Sponsors for this event is nothing short of impressive.  If you happen to be anywhere near Long Island, NY this week, you should take a day out and spend it with us.  Once you see their site and all that is being offered, I think you’ll agree that this is the Grand Daddy “Tech Fair” of ALL Tech Fairs.  Come join us if you can, I’d love to see you there.
