Following on the heels of the 2018 sold- out conference that drew over 600 participants, this year’s fourth annual JCON Real Estate Summit promises to be another blockbuster. The real estate event has blossomed over the years becoming the Jewish community’s most highly- anticipated networking gathering for those in the real state field.
Jam- packed with informative seminars, an impressive lineup of speakers, networking opportunities, and a full trade show, JCON is the premier real estate conference in the greater New York area, drawing participants from all over the Tri-state and beyond. Taking place at the Dyker Beach Golf Course on Tuesday, July 9th from 5 to 10 P.M., JCON is a project of the Jewish Community Council of Marine Park, Crown Heights Young Entrepreneurs, and Emergency Parnassa Initiative Networking. This year’s lead sponsors include Meridian Capital, Cross River Bank, and Saul N. Friedman & Co.
As in past years, the summit will feature four concurrent seminars, followed by a keynote address presented by Meridian Capital CEO and Chairman Ralph Herzka. The event will continue with a buffet dinner that will give participants an opportunity to enjoy a sumptuous meal all while networking with their peers. One of the conference’s highlights will be an on-site trade show and speed mentoring.
“Every year we have multiple industry leaders joining us,” said JCCMP Executive Vice, President Shea Rubenstein. “People can just walk up and strike a conversation with them, allowing unfettered access to top talent in the business, pitching ideas, asking them questions, or presenting themselves for a potential job opportunity.”
In addition to being a hit with attendees, the speed mentoring portion of last year’s program was so well received that Rubenstein noted that many of the mentors stayed well past closing time so that they could continue speaking with participants.
A new feature will be added to the successful JCON format, with a live WABC broadcast that will have JCON speakers and mentors being interviewed by Bottom Line Marketing Group’s Founder and CEO, Yitzchok Saftlas. As always, JCON’s goal is to promote entrepreneurship and to help small businesses grow, noted CHYE Director, Rabbi Yehoshua Werde.
“There are many people in the Jewish community whose educational experience did not prepare them for a career in business or real estate,” said Rabbi Werde. “We want to be that resource to give people a leg up and to really help each other succeed. At last year’s event, we saw that people didn’t want to leave, and we hope to be able to duplicate that on July 9th.”
In addition to the Real Estate Summit, JCON also runs an annual e-Commerce Expo in February. Looking ahead to the future, JCON will be adding several other major events to its annual calendar in order to reach an even wider audience.
“We are a brand that is all about assisting members of the Jewish community succeed,” explained Rubenstein. “Year after year, we have seen each of our events grow. It is clear that the need is there. We look forward to becoming bigger and better and to continue providing priceless opportunities for growth, so participants can provide for their families by acquiring the skills they need to get ahead,” he adds.
