The first Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) Leadership Invitational in Canada is coming to Winnipeg June 12 – 16.

The CIPS Leadership Invitational is offered every two years in the United States by the National Association of Realtors. This is the first event that will be held outside the United States and the only one to be offered in 2017.



“In addition to the educational opportunity, this initiative will also serve as an inbound trade experience, enabling attendees to experience various aspects of Manitoba and to interact with

key Manitoba business, economic development and political leaders,” says the Manitoba Real Estate Association (MREA), which is seeking sponsors for the event.

It will feature “50 to 60 influential, established and emerging real estate leaders from western Canada and the United States.”

The “week-long unique learning, networking and leadership development opportunity” will include a “marquee networking reception at the Journey to Churchill space at Assiniboine Park on Tuesday, June 13, with over 100 additional invitees from Manitoba’s real estate, business, economic development and government communities, as well as a dinner at a unique Winnipeg venue,” says the association.

Various sponsorship opportunities are available providing reach during the five days of in-classroom sessions, the marquee networking reception and a dinner.
