The Benefits of a Business Partner Membership with Us 

Networking
As a Business Partner, you will have the opportunity to attend Business Partner Committee meetings and network with our REALTOR® members at social events. Our two largest events are the Annual Installation Banquet, when we celebrate our outgoing and incoming leadership, and the Million Dollar Awards, which honors the accomplishments of our award-winning agents.

Education and Sponsorship Opportunities
Our Association holds numerous educational courses, free seminars and General Membership luncheons throughout the year. You have the chance to sponsor some of these events. Typically, a Business Partner provides breakfast snacks, lunch, or refreshments and will speak about their company to the attendees for a few minutes before the start of the event. This is a great way to increase your business and visibility in the real estate community. For more information, contact Mary Tombs at mtombs@pgpcnprealtors.com

Exclusive Advertising
In addition to in-person networking, you can choose to advertise online with us on our website and e-newsletters. We have various levels of advertising, which you can view by downloading our packet here. If you have any questions about this service, please contact Simone Petche-Antuono at spetche-antuono@pgpcnprealtors.com.

Exhibiting
Business Partners may choose to participate as exhibitors in our Association's own Business Partner Tradeshow for a nominal fee. The Tradeshow takes place in our auditorium, and it has become tradition to hold a barbecue for lunch. Members love to come out and mingle, enjoying great food and company! In addition to our Association's Tradeshow, our District hosts a regional Conference and Expo. This is always an exceptional event where you can interact with nearly 300 of the most successful REALTORS® from Desoto, Charlotte, Manatee and Sarasota counties.
