Picture being in a room of 500 delegates at a real estate convention or conference. Everyone has real estate opportunities to do business. But how can one communicate with every other person at that convention?

Our Story ICIWorld
Picture trying to keep track of hundreds of real estate opportunities. I tried. Started with attending in the 1980s, CCIM breakfast meetings, marketing sessions at the Toronto Real Estate Board. One to two minutes. Stand up. Present your Have and Want opportunities. Make connections do deals. 65% of the chapter members did business with other chapter members. You couldn't ask for more. But I wondered what about the members not attending?
I tried keeping track of all the Haves and Wants. I just couldn't write fast enough. I attended and moderated sessions in the USA and Canada where over $100M worth of opportunities would be presented in CCIM Marketing Sessions, SEC, and others. Just could not keep track of all the fantastic opportunities presented by brokers and salespeople. Couldn't do it.
ICIWorld is an answer to this problem, how do you keep track and monitor all the of the wonderful opportunities of great professionals in the business.
And how can you get exposure to others who would be interested in the world?
Answer: ICIWorld.com Started on October 22, 1994. 26 years in the making to date. Nose hard to the grindstone. Working day and night. Learning computers, software. It was like a passion like Alexander Graham Bell inventing the telephone. He was a person I thought about frequently to this day. Ignored. If it wasn't for the Queen of England wanting to connect to the barn to get the horses ready, it was considered a play toy. People laughed. Since then you know, all the rest of the story.
I thought everyone would revel in information technology and help to develop it. Instead, it was a lot of criticism. I always and to this day take it as constructive.
