No expense account needed to attend this convention

Want to attend a real estate convention in your pajamas? The sixth annual National Real Estate On-Line Convention and Exposition expects to attract tens of thousands of "attendees" next week. The free event, which is open to real estate industry professionals and the public, will run from Sunday, Feb. 18, through Saturday, Feb. 24. More than 36,000 real estate professionals from 19 countries have pre-registered, according to Massachusetts-based Real Estate CyberSpace Society, which is sponsoring the event. The society envisions its convention and exposition as the real thing -- but in virtual form. Attendees can sign on to their computers to hear speakers discuss real estate topics; learn about new products and services; and network with other professionals online. "The on-line convention will bring real estate professionals all of the excitement, training and features of an old-time convention,” said John M. Peckham III, the society's executive director. Event sponsors include several online real estate services, as well as real estate industry businesses and organizations. More information and to register:
