W hile copious amounts of planning go into developing the subject matter of the panels and presenta- tions during RISMe- dia's events, we put a lot of thought into our networking events, as well. After all, we realize that the time spent informally mingling with colleagues and peers is often just as valuable as attending an educational session. That's why, when it came to planning the closing recep- tion for RISMedia's CEO Exchange this past September, I wanted to do something special. Thanks to our friends at Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® and Hal- stead Property, we were able to hold our closing reception at a spectacular penthouse listing on Broadway, in the heart of Manhattan's Upper West Side. We share this event—dubbed 'The Ultimate Power Broker Open House Experience'—with you in this month's cover story (page 108), to underscore the growing impact of the luxury market and urban real estate across the coun- try. You'll also fnd insights from LeadingRE and Luxury Portfolio's Paul Boomsma, who shared critical information for understanding and marketing to today's luxury buyer during his CEO Exchange presentation. You'll fnd more coverage of our highly successful CEO Exchange throughout this issue, including a recap begin- ning on page 62 and highlights of my one-on-one with RE/MAX Founder and Chairman Dave Liniger on page 30. We also hope to see you at our Power Broker events this month in New Orleans. Held in conjunction with the REALTORS® Conference & Expo, RISMedia will be present- ing its 19th annual Power Broker Forum at the Morial Convention Center on Friday, Nov. 7, from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. (open to all full- and one-day Conference attendees). Later that evening, we will be hosting our 19th annual Power Broker Reception & Dinner at the New Orleans Marriott, honoring those brokers who ranked among the Top 500 in RISMedia's 2014 Power Broker Report. We look forward to an evening of celebration, along with insights from special guest speaker Bob Woodward, the award-winning Washing- ton Post reporter and author. Here's to a great conference for all! John E.
