The industry is rapidly evolving where online classifieds sites are transitioning from advertising businesses to capturing value from the transaction. Some businesses, particularly in emerging markets, are implementing sales teams to close out property sales while others are offering finance and home relocation products.

At this conference you will hear from CEO’s sharing their real-life experiences in transitioning their businesses from advertising to transaction-based models.
