CHICAGO (February 16, 2010) — Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® (LeadingRE) and RESPRO® (Real Estate Services Providers Council) will join forces on March 9 with a general session that doubles as the RESPRO conference closing session and LeadingRE’s opening session at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas.

Guy Kawasaki of Apple Computer fame and founder of Garage Technology Ventures, will discuss the art of innovation to maximize opportunity while others retract in this type of environment.

LeadingRE has exceeded its original room block at the Wynn’s Encore by over 25% percent due to a packed agenda, which encompasses not only its annual conference March 9-11, but also pre-conference events: the Luxury Portfolio Top Sales Associate Summit, MarTech for marketing and technology professionals, and the Sales Managers Leadership Symposium.

A talented speaker line-up is planned, which includes top member presenters like Lennox Scott, John L. Scott Real Estate; Rob Sibcy, Sibcy Cline Realtors; Arthur Sterbcow, Latter and Blum; Pat Riley, Allen Tate Company; and Michael Saunders, Michael Saunders & Company.

“There is tremendous energy and excitement in our network right now,” says LeadingRE President/CEO Pam O’Connor. “While we all recognize that the market still faces significant challenges, our members are feeling a strong need to move forward, and our excellent conference attendance reflects their commitment to making things happen in 2010. Teaming up with RESPRO, along with our multi-dimensional conference content for diverse membership audiences, speaks to the broad brokerage services scope of today’s Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® organization.”
