In addition to guest speaker presentations, SUMMIT offers nearly 50 breakout sessions featuring top-performing LeadingRE sales associates who will share their award-winning strategies on everything from prospecting, to short sales, to working with celebrity clients.

Participants will have the opportunity to network and promote synergy among successful colleagues during memorable social interludes, including a private reception at EVE, Eva Longoria's private event space, and a gala celebration at The Cosmopolitan’s famed Marquee Nightclub featuring top Las Vegas entertainers Human Nature, known for their Motown tributes and recently featured on Dancing with the Stars.

“Performance SUMMIT is truly an historic event, giving a strong contingent of our 140,000 sales associate population the opportunity to experience first-hand the power of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®,” notes the organization’s President/CEO, Pam O’Connor.
