    BOCA RATON, Fla., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- NAREE's 35th Annual Real Estate
 Journalism conference (June 7-10 in Salt Lake City, Utah) is designed so
 housing and commercial real estate journalists can report on national trends
 with regional angles for their home, real estate, and business sections and
 preview the 2002 Winter Olympic Village and Sports Park for their travel and
 sports editors. "Reporters with tight travel budgets can bring home a dozen
 stories for several sections just by spending the weekend at the NAREE

     "No other conference brings real estate experts from every discipline
 under one roof. We'll cover sprawl, hotel overbuilding, and Olympic
 conversion, and e-brokerage, concrete design and affordable housing as well as
 timeshare and resort real estate," notes Bivins.
     About 25 journalists from around the nation will also meet for five-
