No real updates now, except that it is definitely not happening in the first half of 2013. The most likely dates are now September-October, but nothing is locked in. I'll just say that the location hunt has been a real challenge.

When I have more, you'll know!

@Joshua Dorkin,

Knowing that it is not going to be during tax season makes me feel a lot better.

Somewhere WARM !!!!
get enough interested you could command a cruise ship lol



Real Estate Broker · Pensacola, Florida


@Joshua Dorkin My vote's for Vegas. I'll probably go where ever you have the conference, as long as it's on land and not a cruise ship.:)



Developer · Orange County, California


@Joshua Dorkin What are the biggest challenges you're having in lining up a location? Maybe you could do a thread calling for any 'Event Planners' Outline the criteria you're working with, (number of people attending, space needed, etc.) and get multiple people getting information for you from major cities.

Have you considered southern California?

Karen has a great idea there about posting it here. There are what 106k members and if only 2% know someone then you will have it licked..Let me know if myself or my partner Roberta can help...Keith



BiggerPockets Founder · Denver, Colorado


Karen M. - That's an interesting idea. If people are willing to make some calls on our behalf, that would definitely be helpful.

Would people volunteer to do so?

Surely there has to be some members on here that own hotels,or work, or are connected to the hotel industry in the place or places you are considering Josh to throw an event.

They could give tips on down times, when to book the best rates, etc.

Maybe you could throw them a free in to the convention for helping out.

I don't have connections in that space or I would try to help. When I stayed in Massachusetts for vacation in November I went online and the regular rate was 189 a night. They had a special for 2 nights but then it got jacked up again. I called during the day with not much better result. I just call and say I am checking the best deals and don't give too much info.

So I called late at night about 1 a.m. and got the call center instead of the main desk. I asked why prices are so high?? Guy said it changes over every Thursday or something like that I can't remember exactly. Then I just made a grunt noise and the phone was silent for about 5 seconds. The guy said how does 89 a night sound??

I asked him to repeat it just to be sure I was hearing correctly. This was a very nice upscale hotel. He said he could give me that rate if I booked right then. I said sure and booked for about a week. Just shows if you persevere you can find a deal.

@Joshua Dorkin I for one would be happy to make some calls. I know in southern California there is an abundance of meeting spaces, convention centers, etc., every conceivable airline flies in to LAX, John Wayne airpport or Long Beach. There are hotels everywhere in every price range imaginable. I'll bet Will B will be happy to look up in his area of so Cal too. So... get the info on here and let's go to work!

As far as offering incentives for peoples help, I wouldn't get into that, just believe there's enough people on here and appreciate the value of Biggerpockets that will be happy to help. If it ended up someone had to put extensive time in, etc., then you can give them a discount, but for now, stay away from that I think.

You know what we need to find out.

How much meeting space and what configuration do you want? How many days? As far as hotel rooms, all hotels offer discounts for groups, so that won't be a problem.

You get the idea... details!

Let me clarify a little what I said as I think I wasn't clear enough on it.

I am not talking incentives for people to make phone calls and help out BP etc.

I am saying if a specific member works in that industry and has an in to better than usual savings with their connections then it might be nice to return the favor in kind. Just an idea and I have no connections to that industry.

@Joshua Dorkin It's the spirit of BP! You've created an entire community on the web where people from all walks of life, that are college students, military personnel, engineers, hold MBAs even those that don't even have high school diplomas, but entusiasm for getting ahead .. what is one of the common threads? That each and everyone is willing to share of their time, experience, knowledge, etc. to help others that they don't know, solely because they are giving people! So... it's only natural to use that generosity to help BP with the summit!

Oops!! typos... sorry. That should have been enthusiasm!

Josh, if I am not mistaken, I mentioned the fact that their are many members on this site willing to help, myself included. I originally mentioned Vegas for the next right after he first Summit.

While a busy schedule is usually in my crystal ball, for such an event and cause, you know I will step up and I am quite confident. Others will too.
You know how to reach me!

@Joshua Dorkin I'll help make calls to have this in So Cal if you'll comp my travel and lodging (kidding... obviously).

Seriously though, if you think that might have legs, we can round up the REIAs and get several hundred people "in the know", then through that find a venue. I know the Norris Group puts on a swanky event each year (I was an attendee) and I'm sure they have way more of the connections you are looking for, but if you need some "feet on the street" to go scout venues, meet with contact people, etc, I'm down for the cause.
