Should You Attend Virtual Conferences with Brie Schmidt, Episode 207



Conferences are one of the best ways to meet other investors and grow your network. However, COVID-19 has forced most events to cancel or move to a virtual experience. In the case of the Midwest Real Estate Networking Summit, we made the decision to go virtual for 2020.


Brie Schmidt is my partner in running the Midwest Real Estate Networking Summit and we spent a lot of time researching how to bring networking to life in a virtual setting. We want to ensure that the event is more than a collection of speaker presentations. Brie is our guest on today’s show talking about the virtual Midwest Real Estate Networking Summit and what attendees can expect.


In this episode, we highlight key aspects of the virtual event, how networking is being prioritized, the speaker lineup, and how to get the most out of the event. Ultimately, this episode should inform you with enough info to determine if you should join us and attend the 2020 Virtual Midwest Summit.
