Daily Real Estate News  |  May 18, 2005  |   NAR Breaks Attendance Records at Midyear A record-breaking number of more than 9,600 REALTORS® and guests attended the 2005 REALTORS® Midyear Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo last week, which demolished all previous attendance and exhibit records. The previous attendance record for the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®' Midyear Legislative Meeting, held annually at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C., was 8,300 REALTORS® and guests in 2004. The 2005 NAR Midyear Trade Expoalso broke the previous record for exhibitor space with 30,500 square feet and number of exhibitors with 211 exhibiting companies. The previous record was set in 2000 with 29,600 square feet and 157 exhibiting companies. “The attendance and expo records we broke at our midyear meetings this year reflect an NAR membership that stands at more than 1 million and growing," says NAR President Al Mansell, CEO of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Salt Lake City. "This overall growth in NAR membership shows how healthy and competitive the real estate industry really is." NAR also set records last fall at the 2004 annual REALTORS® Conference & Expo in Orlando, which reached an all-time mainland record of over 25,500 total attendees and garnered a record 555 exhibiting companies. —NAR
