Conventioneering – Orlando NAR-2008

I haven’t been to Orlando since I was a little kid, and that was long before Disney discovered it, and it became a tourist and convention Mecca.
My first impression is that everything in the Orange County Convention Center area is much more spread out than it looks on a map. Cabs (they don’t seem to have meters;drivers just make up a fare) are expensive, so I quickly learned the I-Ride system -trolley buses that run International Drive, Seaworld areas. If I return to Orlando and have as many destinations as I do here, I will rent a car.
Late Wednesday and all day yesterday were consumed with CRS (Council of Residential Specialists) meetings (details later), which were away from the convention. Last night, it was dinner with other Memphis real estate folks.

Today I dive in with those 30,000 or so other REALTORS for the Convention. My focus will be on the social media and internet oriented presentations, and I am looking forward to a presentation by Daniel Pink (@danielpink) tomorrow.
