Real estate investing serves as the focus of the 2014 Dallas Fort Worth Real Estate Investor (REI) Expo, set for Jan. 25 and 26 at the Gaylord Texas Resort & Convention Center in Grapevine.
 
The first of four expos set for this year, the conference is the nation’s largest for those interested in building wealth through real estate investing.
 
Serving as keynote speaker will be Rick Sharga, executive vice president of Auction.com and noted resource on real estate, mortgage and foreclosure trends. Founded in 2011 by North Texas real estate veterans Tim Herriage and Arnie Abramson, the event is designed to provide a platform for education, networking and training. 
 
More than 1,000 attendees and more than 100 exhibitors are expected at the training and educational event. The gathering serves as both a real estate investor educational conference and real estate investment trade show. Last year’s event drew almost 800 people to the Hurst Conference Center.
