Success in real estate means crossing borders, rivers, oceans and time zones to take advantage of every opportunity to learn and network — which is what 2,000 real estate and technology entrepreneurs, innovators, leaders and top producers will be doing at Real Estate Connect New York City 2015, Jan. 27-30.

Ask Dutch entrepreneur Boris Geheniau, of Fundament All Media, a leading real estate communication firm. Geheniau is coming to Connect NYC 2015 with 20 of his colleagues.

“Real Estate Connect gives insight into what is really going on in the marriage between real estate, the Internet and the online ecosphere,” Geheniau said. “I had my first taste back in 2009 when I met Brad Inman in Amsterdam and he invited me to ICNY, and I have been hooked ever since.”

Hundreds of other global real estate players are attending, including Christian Henk, vice president of product management at Berlin-based ImmobilienScout24, Germany’s largest online consumer real estate marketplace, and Adina Vasilescu, who specializes in digital, mobile, sales, strategy and acquisitions from Romania. You can also meet Brazil’s Natalia Bartelotti, of VivaReal.

“Real Estate Connect is the place where people hear about new ideas, trends, products, technologies and business models, to learn the secrets of success from top producers,” said Brad Inman, who founded the Connect conferences almost two decades ago.

“Whether you’re flying in from half a world away or taking the train from Brooklyn, there’s something for everyone at Connect — plus you will meet a pile of new people and have lot of fun, I promise.”

Realtor Cheryl Maupin with Bev Curtis & Associates-House of Brokers Realty in Columbia, Missouri, will be flying in with several of her colleagues.

“We’re looking for fresh ideas,” Maupin said. “We want to broaden our knowledge, and sometimes that means trying something new.”

Sean Murphy says that the content of the presentations is what he values most. “I get a lot of takeaways from both a technology standpoint as well as from seeing what cool new gadgets [are available] and hearing what they expect the trends are going to be within the real estate industry as a whole,” said Murphy, who is vice president of MLS for the Tucson Association of Realtors MLS. He doesn’t even mind the possibility of winter weather in New York. “The first time I went, the weather was spectacular. I almost didn’t need a jacket.”
