Thousands Join General Session, Expo and Breakouts
BELLINGHAM, Wash. — May 18, 2020 — More than 9,500 people from 27 countries attended eXp World Holdings’ first virtual The eXp Shareholder Summit general session last week. This was the sixth annual summit, where eXp agents, shareholders and guests gathered to get an update on the company’s financials and future outlook.
Traditionally, the summit is an in-person event, but due to the COVID-19 outbreak it was held in the company’s virtual campus, which is developed by one of its companies, VirBELA. VirBELA helps people around the world communicate, collaborate and meet without travel or physical contact.
“This was my first virtual eXp conference and the only thing I missed were the hugs,” said eXp Realty agent Elizabeth Riley. “I completely engaged at our event where I led a panel discussion in front of hundreds of people from all over the country, represented the agent advisory council and attended a mastermind with the top 2% of real estate agents in the entire country where we share, collaborate and build each other up every step of the way. But, most importantly, I immersed myself in our culture with conversations and selfies even though we couldn’t see our colleagues in person.”
The eXp Shareholder Summit took place during four days, including a day-long general session, breakouts and an expo hall. With an average audience of 1,200 people per session, breakouts consisted of 75 sessions across five auditoriums covering a variety of topics for agents, including growth, sales and expansion. The expo hall had 22 vendor booths and saw more than 3,000 visits in one day.
“eXp has been fully virtual since our inception in 2009, so we were uniquely positioned to quickly pivot to a massive virtual event,” said eXp World Holdings Founder and CEO Glenn Sanford. “It is pretty special when you can do an event even better in the virtual world with thousands of our eXp family and friends, share great content and have meaningful, serendipitous collisions throughout the convention center. It was an epic week and I am super stoked to say that eXp is prepared for anything.”
