Over the past few months, I’ve spent time talking about all of the areas that Launch Pad is able to help investors get laserfocused on investing strategies, asset class and types, how to get creative with financing, but when it comes down to it, it’s all about how do you make real estate work for you?

For those of you who have been around AZREIA for a while, well, since the downturn in 2008, you might remember the annual conference and expo held at the Phoenix Convention (Civic) Center, which in its day brought in over 1,200 attendees. The theme that Alan has used since it’s inception was “Making it Work for You!”

So, here we are in 2020, and Maureen, Alan, and I sat down last year and thought that NOW would be an outstanding time to knock the dust off and bring the Arizona real estate investing community together for an event of this scale!

But you’re probably asking yourself, why now? There isn’t any inventory and home prices are going up!

And our answer to you is, NOW! Now is the perfect time to hold an event to uncover, reveal, explore how we navigate a thriving real estate market, learn new or adapt old skills to help with lead acquisition, creative financing, and explore alternative and new investing strategies that old and new investors alike are using to capitalize on current market conditions.

And for those of you who are sitting on the sidelines waiting to decide where to place your capital next, this event is for you!

One session that we are most excited about is on Sunday morning. We’re assembling a heavy hitter panel to take a glimpse at the past as they prepare for the future! We’re asking our panel, if you went bankrupt…“If you had to start over, What would You do to Make a Million Dollars in the Next Five Years?” You can hear from some of AZREIA’s biggest and brightest investors to see where they are going and what they’ll be doing to weather the ROARING…or maybe not so roaring 20’s.

Also, back by popular demand, Bill Cook will be spending late Sunday morning teaching on creative finance strategies in an intensive session on nothing but how to make multiple offers that stick! You may remember Bill from last spring where he taught us “What Box?”, took us door knocking, and blew our minds during the “Creative Deal Making Academy!”

These are just a few sessions, but there will be multiple tracks of education running, along with keynotes, panels, and new and breaking real estate strategies and trends to help you not only navigate the next decade into the next real estate cycle, but we know that you’ll walk away with a clear directive on how and what is the best way to make real estate work for you!

Stay tuned for details, but go ahead and save the date, Saturday & Sunday, April 25-26th, 2020 at the Phoenix Convention Center for AZREIA’s “Making it Work for You!” Conference & Expo! Registration is open, but be sure to attend an upcoming AZREIA monthly meeting to get the best rate. We’re making it our goal to pack this event full of content for every level or type of investor. We promise there will be something for everyone! Stay tuned for more details as more sessions, breakouts, and learning opportunities are added!
