InspectionWorld California: An Event You Can't Afford to Miss!

ANGELA ORLANDO

InspectionWorld, the largest professional conference for home inspectors, is coming to California, January 10-13, 2007. Jointly sponsored by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) and the California Real Estate Inspection Association (CREIA), the conference will be held at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim.

InspectionWorld is an event where everyone from the novice to the seasoned inspector can enhance his or her skill set, network with peers and talk to an abundance of industry suppliers.

Each day, the conference will offer 15 different education sessions spanning five interest-specific tracks. These sessions enable attendees to acquire a wide range of knowledge to enhance their business, technical and basic home inspection capabilities.

In addition to the extensive educational program, which allows attendees to earn up to 20 ASHI MRCs and satisfy some state CEU requirements, attendees can visit with over 85 industry-specific vendors in the 30,000 square foot Exhibit Hall. InspectionWorld exhibitors represent companies and products relevant to the home inspection industry—testing equipment, tools, inspection software, report materials and more. For the first time, attendees will be able to take advantage of intensive product and service information from select exhibitors participating in the Exhibitor Theatre on the show floor.

For those looking to combine a little pleasure with business, InspectionWorld offers many social events, allowing for plenty of industry networking. At the opening night Exhibit Hall Reception on Wednesday evening, attendees can mingle with vendors in a relaxed environment. The All-Show Destination Brunch provides a tasty meal, while highlighting next year’s InspectionWorld site New Orleans. To wrap things up, on the last night of the show is the popular President’s Gala, a festive affair where attendees can kick back and relax after an intense week of learning. This year, we will be taking over a section of Disney’s California Adventure theme park for this memorable event.

InspectionWorld also welcomes spouses, with an entertainment program designed specifically for these important attendees. Plus, since we are on Disney property, we encourage you to take advantage of the special theme park discount tickets that will be offered to all conference attendees.
