    PowerConnections™ Lunch Sessions

    Each Conference Attendee will be pre-assigned a designated PHS PowerConnection™ Lunch Group, 11:00 am – 12:15 pm. Look on your registration nametag for where your designated group will meet for lunch at 11 am sharp! We will conduct these unique and powerful networking lunches in designated showrooms throughout LuxeHome and the Design Center.

    The sessions will be facilitated similarly to our Membership Community’s popular PowerConnections™.

    Each participant will have “showcase time” to share their talent, leading to building mutually beneficial relationships, collaborations, and give & get referrals. During the lunches, we will introduce 2020 PHS Realtor® Roundtable Members. These top real estate agents, one at each session, will speak on “how to” build valuable relationships among themselves and their colleagues.
