SCREC 2014 Wrap Up

IREM-OC’s 24th Annual Southern California Real Estate Conference and Tradeshow “Defying Gravity” attracted 555 attendees this year. Our keynote speaker Colonel Mike Mullane blew everyone away with amazing tales of his career as a NASA astronaut, resulting in a long and winding receiving line to receive a personally autographed book.

The event showcased 60 exhibitors, and was supported by nine corporate sponsors and 15 industry partner sponsors.

Based on greater attendance, increased tradeshow hours, number of exhibitors and calibre of our educational sessions, we surpassed last year’s successful event, which won the IREM Innovation Award for SCREC 2013!
