You don’t have to be Bears Quarterback Jay Cutler to know the significance of big numbers or get pumped up by rallying cries. But if you are a Bears fan and plan to attend the IAR Fall Conference and Expo in Chicago, Sept. 4-6, these terms will make perfect sense and spur you into action today.

“Game On!” is an animated rallying cry used by many athletes and is the theme of this year’s conference. The numbers 49, 70 and 73 – while they could be signals used by the Bears’ quarterback – also represent the respective number of days until:

  • The early-bird conference registration deadline ends (Aug. 14);
  • The opening day of the conference begins (Sept. 4); and
  • The day after the conference ends and you can implement any new strategies you’ve learned (also the Bears’ first home game of the 2014 season, against Buffalo, Sept. 7).

REALTORS® can save money if they register for the full conference ($149) by the Aug. 14 deadline instead of the intermediate rate ($169, Aug. 15-21) or the walk-in price ($189).  They can also save on the one-day rates too ($99/$109/$119).

Non-members can save if they meet the early-bird date ($199) instead of the intermediate rate ($229, Aug. 15-21) and walk-in rate ($259).  Non-members can save on one-day rates too ($139/$149/$159).


The conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place in Chicago, and the hotel plans to set up a “Tailgate Terrace” for Bears fans to eat together and watch the game in the hotel together.  Whether you plan to work on Sept. 7, cheer on the Bears from the Tailgate Terrace or visit Soldier Field, we’re sure the conference and expo will leave you with plenty of information to enhance your game plan for the future.
