What is a Plug Fest?
A PlugFest is an event where software developers gather to 1) test the interoperability of their products, designs or concepts with others and 2) meet and collaborate on solving common technological issues facing their particular community or industry. Basically, it’s a collaborative, open and friendly environment devoted to facilitating conversations - both digital and verbal. Read more about our Plug Fest here.
What's in it for me?
One of the most valuable aspects of a PlugFest is that you join a group of people all working toward a set of common goals. In the real estate data world, we all want more efficiency within our various data networks. We’re also under pressure to show greater value to the end user we serve. That’s what a PlugFest is all about.
You’ll get to bring in your products, technology, issues and solutions and join others who’ll do the same. Rub elbows with the best and brightest, add your opinions to the most important, industry-driving conversations and learn from the most distinguished specialists in our industry (speaker list). You have a voice and we want to hear it. Sounds great, right? Plus, you’re in Las Vegas! What are you waiting for?
