State and Local Forum on Global Business


A packed room! As global business is a hot market trend, a lot of this year’s attendees are very interested in making sure their association is aware of all the opportunities that bring value to their members.

On the topic of international trade missions, we brought two associations that hosted trade missions: West San Gabriel hosted Taiwan and Greater Las Vegas hosted the Asian Real Estate Association of America.

Key point:
Contact your local REALTOR® Association, NAR Global Division, and/or the President’s liaison of the country of interest to inquire about any upcoming trade missions. This provides a forum for meeting government and business leaders abroad.

What inbound trade associations are interested in:

  • How real estate offices are set up.
  • How each country is different.
  • Closing.
  • How to hold title.

Keep the budget in mind and make sure to include play time for activities like golf and karaoke. Oh, and don’t forget about gifts!
