Top Eleven Reasons Not To Miss NLC18!

We couldn’t be more excited for the 2018 National Land Conference! It’s an amazing time of year when the best of the best in land real estate come together to share knowledge, network, and have a ton of fun together. Since we did the Top Ten Reasons to Attend the 2017 National Land Conference last year, this year we are counting down the Top Eleven Reasons to Attend the NLC18 on March 12-14 in Nashville, TN.

  1. Nashville, TN – The Music City!

This year’s location is none other than Music City, USA. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Nashville, so you’ll be within walking distance of landmarks such as the Country Music Hall of Fame, Bridgestone Arena (home of the Nashville Predators), and plenty of honky-tonks. We’ll also be hosting our Welcome Reception at The Valentine — aka “Broadway’s Biggest Party!”

  1. The Variety of the Sessions — FIVE Breakout Sessions!

Even the most seasoned land professional can learn something new in our line-up of breakout sessions. The Breakout Sessions include topics like timberland, social media, the 2018 Farm Bill, title issues, investing in land, hunting land, and so much more.

  1. Our Partners

Drop by the exhibit hall to meet some of our partners and explore the variety of services and products they have to offer. NLC18 wouldn’t be possible without partners like United Country Real Estate, The Land Report, Keller Williams Realty, Land Broker Co-op, and so many more!

  1. The Cowboy Auction: Pony Up!

Bid on hunting trips, autographed memorabilia, vacation packages, and more! We’ll have a more detailed list of items to bid on as the event draws closer. This lively event raises money for the LANDU Education Program through the Land Education Foundation (LEF). Last year United Country helped RLI raise a record amount of funds at this event. Help us break that record in 2018! Place your bids on exclusive items like hunting trips, handmade items, vacation packages and more!

  1. Amazing Expert Speakers

The best of the best come out for the National Land Conference, and 2018 is no different. Dr. Mark Dotzour, the Chief Economist of the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University, has had his research featured in Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Business Week. We’ll also have on site expert speaker is Edsel Charles, the Founder and Chairman of the Board for MarketGraphics Research Group, INC. These two men are coming to NLC18 to share their knowledge and answer questions from the audience. Where else could you get such an opportunity but at NLC18?

  1. Have Your Voice Heard

With chapters in eighteen states and over a thousand members, you might think that it would be hard to have an input with such a big organization. However, with sessions like the RLI Town Hall and RLI Chapter Workshop Meeting, you can have a chance to make a difference and have your voice heard by (and hear from) hundreds of other RLI members.

  1. The Land Tech Accelerator Program

This new addition to the conference is a look into the future of land real estate. The 2018 New Technology Partners will showcase the latest technologies for land real estate and showcase how they can improve your business. Hear from our winners, Terva, LandHub.com, and REALSTACK, about their new technologies available to the industry!

  1. Pre-Conference Tour of Jack Daniel’s Distillery | Update: SOLD OUT!

Kick off the week the Nashville Way! Take a tour of the Jack Daniel’s Distillery and learn the history behind this famous whisky. Afterwards, sip five different types of whisky and liqueur at Barrel House 1-14. There are a limited number of spots for this event and registration is first-come-first-serve—so get your tickets today!

  1. The Return of Let’s Make Deal$ LIVE

It’s back by popular demand! This fan favorite event is a live Haves & Wants session where you can showcase your client’s property to over 250 other brokers/agents and their clients. It is the largest opportunity to market and buy land in the industry, so don’t miss out on this amazing business opportunity to make deals. We already have $200M worth of land being presented, don’t miss this two-hour property marketing session at NLC18.

  1. The Chance to Network

With texting, social media, and LinkedIn, it seems as if there are fewer and fewer opportunities to network with people offline. At NLC18, not only do you get to meet fellow professionals from all over the country, but you will be interacting with the best of the best. Make sure to check out the NLC18 official event app to enhance your networking.

  1. The 2018 RLI APEX Awards

Topping off our list is a new addition to the NLC rotation. NLC18 will include the first-ever APEX Awards Program. The APEX Awards Program celebrates outstanding RLI members and their accomplishments. Awards will be given to the top twenty producers, as well as top brokers in the categories of Crops, Ranches, Recreational Land, Timber Land, Commercial Land, Residential Land, and Auction Sales. Will you be recognized as one of the nation’s top producers? Attend to find out!
