Inman News launches invitation-only conferences

Data Summit event scheduled July 25-26

Inman News is launching a series of invitation-only executive conferences, the company announced today.

The first conference, called the Inman Data Summit, is scheduled for July 25-26, 2011, just before the company’s Real Estate Connect conference. Both events will take place at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square hotel.

Inman News is also planning two additional invitation-only conferences to be held in Palm Springs, Calif., in the fall: the Inman Women’s Summit for female executives, top producers and "thought leaders" in the industry; and the Inman Top Team Summit for top-producing real estate agents and their teams, industry executives, and technology leaders.

"We believe that these conferences serve a vital need in the industry to present hard-hitting information for decision-makers that is actually created and vetted by executives and thought leaders," said Tim Smith, CEO of Inman News, in a statement.
