HousingWire’s Real Estate Expo (REX), one of the nation’s largest and most influential real estate events, announced today that it has partnered with enterprise real estate social network RESAAS as a Platinum Sponsor for this year’s event.

Under terms of an innovative new deal signed this week, attendees at REX 2013 will be given RESAAS profile pages and will be networked together into a private REX group to communicate and share information during the live event.

"We think this is the first time any real estate event has featured a preferred social networking partner, and it’s going to be amazing to see how our attendees make use of this great tool," said Paul Jackson, CEO and Publisher at HousingWire.

"It’s important to us that REX do more than simply talk about how new technology is changing real estate, but that we’re able to actually demonstrate positive change for our attendees."
