The Rental Property Owners Association (RPOA) and Short Term Rental Association (STRA) will jointly host the 2024 Midwest Real Estate Investor Conference.


This year's conference will be bigger and better—featuring 12+ expert local and national speakers on topics for long-, mid-, and short-term rental investors of all experience levels, breakout sessions packed full of wealth-building strategies and techniques, over 50 exhibitors, updates on the real estate market by local experts, and a deal room each day of the conference where attendees can share deals they have or find ones they’re looking for.

The Midwest Real Estate Investor Conference provides a great opportunity to network with 600+ investors and exhibitors throughout the event.​


“The presentations I was able to attend were all great and well worth the time spent. I also enjoyed talking with some of the vendors. That was very helpful. I would never have had the chance to meet them in any other way. Thanks so very much.”

“There was a good balance of full workshops and breakout sessions over the three day period. Also more vendors, that was great.”

“I liked being able to get information from knowledgeable people that had their information in a package that could be purchased if desired.”

“There was a variety of speakers covering many different aspects of the real estate business. The deal room was also a great way to learn during lunch.”

“I loved being able to meet and greet with the vendors. It is important for me to be able to discuss issues face-to-face and build new relationships.”
