What is Activate?
Activate is the RE/MAX Canadian conference where agents gather from all over Canada to network, learn new skills, celebrate, and have fun! This year was definitely one of the best we’ve ever had! Hosted by RE/MAX Western Canada in one of the most beautiful places in the world – Whistler BC! Over 750 RE/MAX REALTORS® attended the sold out, three day event held at the fabulous Chateau Whistler Resort and Spa.
Reenergize and recharge!
The days were filled with motivational headline speakers and educational break-out sessions to keep our associates on top of their game. The opening session was one of the highlights for everyone and featured John Herdman, head coach of the Canadian Women’s National Soccer Team, speaking about leadership and being the best YOU you can be. There was not a dry eye in the house when he was done.
Network and build your business!
The nights were filled with great networking opportunities – usually in the form of cocktail parties hosted by individual agents or teams from all over Canada wanting to increase their referral business with other agents in the RE/MAX network! The RE/MAX global presence and number of associates – more than 110,000 agents in over 100 countries – allows our agents to make sure their clients are looked after by fellow RE/MAX professionals literally anywhere in the world. This unique referral opportunity is one of the main reasons so many of our associates attend conferences like these throughout the year.
The closing celebration dinner, with a theme of Denim and Diamonds, was a huge hit with great food, a live band that kept everyone on the dance floor and of course, more great networking opportunities!
It wasn’t all just fun and education! RE/MAX associates have always had a passion for giving back to the communities we live and work in, and it came out in spades at this year’s Children’s Miracle Network Auction! Our associates – at this conference alone -raised over $120,000, all of which will go to local Children’s Hospitals in Canada.
Looking forward to R4 and Activate in 2017!
Next year’s Canadian Activate Conference will be held in September in Winnipeg, but you don’t have to wait that long to get your fill of a RE/MAX conference. The RE/MAX R4 International Conference is coming up in February 2017 and is back at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in fabulous Las Vegas! Can’t wait!
RE/MAX events are like no other in the real estate industry. Make new referral connections, gain new ideas and recharge your batteries – locally and internationally!
