"We are truly excited to have business leaders and decision makers from all across the housing spectrum come and work together at the Five Star Conference this year," said Ed Delgado, president and CEO of the Five Star Institute. "This year’s conference offers a tremendous service to our colleagues in the industry by offering them the opportunity to meet, collaborate, and network with the most prominent leaders in the field. We have changed the way industry conferences are done forever."
Indeed, this year The Five Star Institute alters everything about the way that industry conferences are executed. Instead of forcing all of its participants into lengthy programming supplemented by only a few break-out sessions, the conference curriculum is broken up into six separate mini-conferences dubbed “labs” that allow the attendees to tailor their conference experience to better fit their needs and interests. The labs each cover a broad topic relevant to housing with each speaker specifically focusing his or her discussion on a topic vital to understanding the area of interest. Collaboration within the labs is encouraged as ample time is allotted for speakers to field questions from attendees at the conclusion of their talks.
"With the depth of representation from thought leaders from real estate to servicing and government and mortgage banking, Five Star presents the most comprehensive curriculum available anywhere brought to you by subject matter experts from across the industry," Delgado said.
Lab topics include compliance, foreclosure, investment, property management, REO, and servicing.
The event's highlights include a special presentation from the 43rd President of the United States George W. Bush accompanied by Mrs. Laura Bush, hosted by their daughters, Barbara Bush and Jenna Bush Hager.
The Five Star Conference and Expo will take place September 14 through 16 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Texas. Registration is still available by visiting www.thefivestar.com/fsc/.
