Ushering in the Fall season

Sep 18, 2013 Kim Prior

The close of Summer and start of Fall represents so many things.

The end of….
the sun dropping below the clouds after the kids should be in bed
mosquito bites, watersports, flip flops and sun baked skin (for most of us)
the perpetual hum of the AC (and the unwelcomed bills that come along with that)

At the same time, it marks the beginning of…
shorter days, homework and school activities
football football football
the Holiday season
crisp, comfortable weather that beckons us outside
comfort food

Oh yes….and then there’s CMLS, NAR and annual Budget prep.

How could I forget?!

Beyond candy apples, less sleep, nachos and wings on the weekend and sweater weather, we in the industry know that the Fall means conferences!

Here at FBS, we’re in full swing planning some cool stuff for both CMLS and NAR SF. Here’s just a bit of what you can expect.

As a proud CMLS sponsor, we’re excited to host the hotel/conference transportation in Boise and see friends (old and new at our Booth #5). We’ll have some exciting and new things to talk with you about and, can’t wait to take part in what looks to be a great agenda.

After much success last year, we’re once again hosting our Spark Pavilion (alongside our flexmls booth) at NAR in San Francisco. The Spark Pavilion will showcase a handful of innovative, new apps/products joining the Spark store in the next 30-45 days. Representatives from those companies will be at a number of kiosks within the Pavilion… demo’g products and answering questions. We’re gearing up for a great, diverse group and hope you will all come by and check it out. And while we already have a great group of app providers and developers signed up, we are always open to more. So, if by chance you have been a little relaxed in your approach to put your app in the Spark store and want the HUGE value of showcasing your product to NAR attendees in your own branded kiosk within our popular Spark Pavilion (at no cost to you), drop me a line at I’d be happy to chat with you.

The FBS team is looking forward to seeing you soon – first in Boise, then in SF. Until then, goodbye summer and hello to the distinct pleasures and activities of the Fall!
