Council of MLS Logo This year, the most exciting and fulfilling conference will again be the CMLS by the Council of MLS. It is a conference like no other, dedicated fully to excellence in providing Multiple Listing Services to real estate professionals.

This year, the CMLS conference will be in one of America’s greatest cities – Boston! Our hostess for the event will be Kathy Condon and her team at MLS Property Information Network or MLSPIN. Men have hosted the conference the past couple of years and done a respectable job, but we all know that women rock in organizational skills. Thanks to Kathy, this year will be outstanding! (Trivia – who was the last female MLS executive to host CMLS and where is she now?)

Here are a couple of details

Conference Dates: September 26th-28

Location: Sheraton Boston Hotel

Discount Registration Cut Off: $495 before June 15th, $695 after June 15th – book early. This conference will sell out as it always does – so whip out that credit card and reserve your spot today. I am not kidding.

Sponsorship: Because of the venue, there are fewer booths this year. If you are a CMLS member, you get first crack at sponsorship opportunities. Exhibitors from last year get first right of refusal, followed by new sponsors. If you are a vendor, I suggest that you contact Melissa Lindberg at MLS PIN today – or by phone at 508-845-1011 x7121.

Like registration, the sponsorships sell out quickly. If this is part of your marketing plan for 2012 – you better contact Melissa Lindberg today. She will not be able to accommodate you once it sells out – no matter who you are or how hard she tries.

Space is limited. Note: There is about a 15% discount for sponsors who reserve and pay early – get on that. Sponsorships range from $3100 to $15,000. LPS MLS Group has already committed to the Title Sponsorship with a contribution of  $20,700 (Thanks LPS!). Here is a hint.

Final hint: If you want to assure yourself a ticket to the conference or a sponsorship spot – you may want to start by joining CMLS ($300) today, or renewing your membership if you have not done that already.
