One thing for sure is that people would not frequent the events if they are not taking something from them. Here are some benefits that you get from attending the conferences if you are an investor.

Attending the events is also a way of continuing your education especially if there are licenses that you hold in the real estate industry, the accredited events will be like having a next class, the non-accredited events have something to offer too. You get to do this without putting other commitments in life on hold.You cannot overlook the impromptu learning sessions that present themselves during lunch and breaks where you get to learn from different people on things that interest you in real estate. Real estate conferences are filled with people that are experts in different areas and when looking for some take away they might be somewhere else from where everybody elses attention is.
You will not have a certificate showing that you attended a certain conference on real estate but the knowledge that you leave with will be the difference. However if you have clients that would benefit from your exposure to the event you can share with them what you gained or write a blog on what you learnt. The real estate events can also be a social forum where you get to catch up with friends and engage in something fun.
The events sometimes will take you to a new city , do some homework and see what you can do there that will add value to you or your real estate knowledge. This is an opportunity for you to distribute cards and also take some so that you can source the expertise that you dont have on anything that you might need related to real estate. This is also an opportunity for you to confirm something that you come across from professionals that are in the events.
