REinventing MLS

‘Twas the Night Before MREDpalooza

Largest Free Real Estate Tech Expo is Tomorrow

LISLE, ILLINOIS (June 17, 2013) – The planning and preparation are over.  The superheroes have arrived, and the sponsors and exhibitors have started setting up.  MREDpalooza is taking place tomorrow, and the people at Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED), Chicagoland’s multiple listing service (MLS), are ready to host the mega-event at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont.

“With the upturn in the real estate market, the timing is perfect for an event of this magnitude,” said Rob Schaid, President of MRED.  “I could not be more proud of our exemplary staff for taking on this task and delivering in such a big way.  I never dreamed we’d have such a huge response.  I can’t wait to get there.”

Judging from the training registrations, it appears almost every one of the 5,000 plus registrants is planning on attending a class or two, but also spending a good chunk of time in the Expo.  Opportunities to explore new products and services, as well as chances to win cash and prizes await in the scores of booths at the heart of MREDpalooza.

“We’re fortunate to have a veteran, savvy group of employees that knows what benefits the MRED customer,” said MRED CEO Russ Bergeron.  “With their input and execution, we are about to pull off one of the biggest real estate related events ever seen in the Chicagoland area. I also have to give a big shout out to all the exhibitors and sponsors whose participation has allowed us to put on this show at no cost to all attendees.”

MRED would like to give special thanks to POW! Level sponsor Trulia, as well all the other sponsors and exhibitors of MREDpalooza.   Their participation allows this event to be put on at no cost to all attendees. Extra special thanks go out to MREDpalooza’s POW! and ZAP! sponsors – Trulia, Zillow,, RESAAS, Point2, Cartavi, Real Estate Digital, ShowingTime, and Cloud CMA – for providing all the training class content.

“There will be something for everybody at MREDpalooza,” added Bergeron.  “I invite every real estate professional to make their way here tomorrow.  It’s free, you’ll acquire skills and knowledge to help your business, and you may win a prize or two while you’re at it.  You don’t want to miss MREDpalooza.”
