Conference in VEGAS September 20-23

Hey Guys, we’re going to be at a Inspector Conference put on by Mike Casey & Kevin O’Malley in Vegas September 20th-23rd. These are the guys that put on the great conferences and then sold their business (ITA) to Kaplan. Now they’re back! It’ll be held at the Venetian where you can get a room for only $129. I’ll be giving a talk on search engine optimization during one of the hour long educational slots as well as have a booth set up.

I’m looking into getting a classroom on the 19th or 20th before the official conference starts for 3-5 hours to give a longer talk on website optimization and an hour on Home Inspector Pro. Let me know if you’re interested. We’re trying to find the exact cost of the room but I’m guessing that we’d charge $25 for the talk to help cover the cost of the room. If we can get a good deal on it then we’ll make it free to enter. PLEASE let me know now if you’re interested in the extra session before the conference so I can make arrangements on a room size. Also let me know how long you think you can listen to me talk about how to make your websites look better, rank better and convert your visitors into callers. I can talk forever but don’t want to drive you guys mad Cheesy

You can find out more information and register at . The conference itself is $295 which is nothing for a multi day conference. You can earn CE’s as well. You can view a brochure on the conference here:

I’ve already had a good response on the separate extended website optimization class on the 20th. Let me know if you’re coming so we can get an appropriate sized room! Looks like Nick’s talking too!

Wednesday, September 23rd

This special class requires a separate fee

9:00AM - 1:00PM Claims Consultant Certification Class Mike Casey

Ok, just got work from Kevin. The claims class on the 23rd for free if you register soon (before it cost extra as the core conference was the 21st & 22nd and they’ll be charging for it again).

We’ve finalized the details for the search engine optimization/website/Home Inspector Pro class. It’s going to be 9am to 2pm on the 20th, and it’ll be FREE. So basically if you register soon you’ll get 4 days of classes and credit for the cost of 2.

Kevin & Casey are giving away 2 trips to Costa Rica to people who sign up for the conference.

Also they are also doing a “Give away a day” on (register in the top left corner)… Every day they are having a drawing for a free pass to the conference. People just have to visit the site and enter their name and email address to be in the drawing.

Only 120 registered for this event, so it doesn’t make sense for us to be there.

I’m sure there will be at least 200+ by the time of the event. As with all the NACHI Success Seminars we went on, a ton of people showed at the door or registered last minute. You were talking about doing a NACHI day in Vegas though, why not combine the two and get a lot more people there?

my birthday is Sept 22. I’d love to be there unfortunately I was there 3 weeks ago… A trip to vegas and all tax deductible… keep me on the maybe list :cool::cool:

Sounds good Robert :wink: Hopefully I’ll see you there. They got a great deal at the Venetian, only $129 a night.
