In the world of real estate, every successful deal begins with a conversation. The BiggerPockets BPCON2023 event was a dedicated platform for these essential conversations – a place where lenders and borrowers converged to establish connections and discuss real estate deals.
Attending a real estate investor trade show from a lender’s perspective can be an exciting and informative experience. It’s an opportunity to connect with potential borrowers, gain insights into the market, and build valuable relationships. In this event recap, we’ll share our experience attending the BiggerPockets BPCON2023 tradeshow in Orlando and highlight some key takeaways.
1. Networking Opportunities:
Real estate events are a melting pot of industry professionals, from seasoned investors to those just starting their journey. The team at BiggerPockets was expecting 2000+ real estate investors for the Orlando event held at the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes and our team had great conversations with attendees. The crowd was diverse – from new investors to those with large portfolios and years of experience under their belt. Locations also varied, including people from as far away as Hawaii and Alaska to those local to the Orlando area. These interactions opened doors to potential business partnerships and there are already deals being submitted as a result.
2. Learning from Pros:
One of the most valuable aspects of attending events for borrowers is the opportunity to learn from industry experts. There were numerous panel discussions, workshops, and keynote presentations on topics like short term rentals, finding deals in an uncertain market, investment strategies, and house flipping. Speakers included Tarek El Moussa and Heather Rae El Moussa among others.

On the lending side, the LYNK team gained valuable market intelligence into what potential borrowers are looking for in a lender.
Common attendee questions included:
- Points and how they work on a loan
- Experience needed to secure the best terms
- Rates and leverage on New Construction, Fix & Flip and Rental loans
- How many units can be funded on a New Construction project
Meeting new borrowers at the BPCON2023 show provided an invaluable opportunity to bridge the gap between lender and borrower. It’s a chance to not only showcase the LYNK Capital lending programs but also to understand the unique needs and goals of potential clients. By explaining what we do as a lender and demonstrating our commitment to providing tailored financial solutions, we can help borrowers achieve their property investment goals.
