THOUSANDS of RE/MAX agents will have the chance to hear from one of the NFL’s top players at the annual RE/MAX R4 Convention in Las Vegas in March.
Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, the league’s only five-time MVP and a 13-time Pro Bowler, will be the event’s keynote speaker.
“Peyton is in high demand as a speaker and we’re thrilled that he accepted our invitation to speak at R4,” said RE/MAX, LLC CEO Margaret Kelly.
“His story of success on the football field, and his determination to overcome what could have been a career-ending injury, is something that will no doubt be one of the highlights of the convention.”
The 2015 RE/MAX R4 will also feature Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Steven Tyler, lead singer for Aerosmith.
Tyler has been a rock icon since the 1970s, is among Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Singers and has been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
