Baton Rouge, La — Some 350 realtors and 150 affiliate members of the Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors are expected to attend the 2012 Realtorr Day Expo today at the Shaw Center for the Arts and Manship Theatre in downtown Baton Rouge.
The event will have such a positive impact on the city that Baton Rouge Mayor-President Kip Holden will proclaim November 1, 2012 Realtor Day.
There will be a sea of red shirts; the first 300 entrants will receive a free red event shirt, and everyone attending has been asked to wear red in celebration of the day.
The 2012 Realtor Day theme is “All Around Downtown.” GBRAR has partnered with multiple vendors downtown for the event, including The Belle of Baton Rouge Casino, Happy’s Irish Pub, The Roux House, Schlitz & Giggles, Lucy’s Retired Surfer Bar, and The Blend.
While the Expo has been held annually since 1990, this is the first year it’s been held downtown.
