Workshop for Landlords

The following is reprinted from the online edition of NWREporter December 2008, published by Seattle-King County Association of Realtors. I have never attended an event sponsored by TRENDS; my intention is not to endorse this event, merely to provide information which may be of value to my readers.

TRENDS is the premier annual education conference and trade show for Northwest rental housing ownership, management and maintenance. TRENDS provides the largest one-day rental housing management/ownership conference and trade show on the West Coast and is recognized as a national award-winning event.

For twenty-four years TRENDS has offered quality education programs and an excellent trade show and typically attracts 1,800 attendees.
