HousingWire Expands REO Expo, Launches REX2013

Real Estate Expo to Bring Thousands of Professionals From Across the Country to Dallas-Ft. Worth

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - Nov 16, 2012) - HousingWire announced today that the company's highly-anticipated fourth annual real estate industry event has been scheduled for June 2-4, 2013 in Fort Worth, Texas. Formerly known as REO Expo, the 2013 event has been newly recast using the brand name REX -- short for Real Estate Expo -- reflecting a substantial expansion of the conference's focus.

"HousingWire is the industry's leading media outlet and it's this cutting-edge commitment that propels our agenda for REX2013," said Paul Jackson, CEO and Publisher of HousingWire. "This event will not only focus on traditional, distressed and corporate real estate, but the technology and innovative solutions that drive the real estate industry as a whole forward."

In the three years since its launch in 2010, REO Expo has become the nation's largest conference focused solely on distressed residential real estate. REX2013 builds upon this success and sets the stage for professionals serving the entire residential real estate market, including real estate brokers and agents, portfolio managers, legal and title representatives, home preservation specialists and many more.

"The goal of REX2013 is to provide the knowledge and connections real estate professionals need to succeed in today's vital and rapidly changing market -- no matter which segment of the market they focus on," Jackson said.

Over the course of the three-day event, an innovative agenda will focus on how real estate professionals can grow their business through technology and updated processes, while also providing invaluable leadership training. REX2013 will feature a range of educational programs, including a Technology Program, a Realtor Development Series by Corcoran Consulting, REO and Short Sale Asset Management Training, a Social Media Series, Legal and Code Compliance Trends, and more.

The conference will take place at the Fort Worth Convention Center in downtown Fort Worth, with an expected attendance of over 2,000 real estate professionals. Visit for more information.
