Mayflower HotelEach year, all of us at WAV Group circle the dates for the annual RISMedia CEO and Leadership Exchange. For the real estate industry, this is our Davos meeting. RISMedia brings together the leadership of franchises, large brokerage firms, mega boards, NAR Executives, MLS CEOs, and the top technology minds in real estate.

This year’s 2023 RISMedia CEO and Leadership Exchange will take place September 5-7 in Washington, D.C. at the historic Mayflower Hotel. If you are getting back into the conference track post-covid – you will notice that they have moved the venue out of New York City. The event outgrew the historic Yale Club.
