Inman, the leader in independent real estate and technology news and events, is happy to announce nine ambassadors for the highly anticipated Luxury Connect in Beverly Hills, California, Oct. 21-22.
Luxury Connect is a special gathering of the most influential in luxury real estate. The event is designed to connect people, introduce technology and spark conversation about what’s next in the high-end market.
This year, Inman has extended the ambassador program to Luxury Connect. For the first time ever, both attendees and nonattendees will get an inside look on the who, what, where and when of this extraordinary event, as ambassadors will post live on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
Ambassadors were selected for their outstanding work in the industry, their commitment to Inman’s core values, and their influential positions within their own online and offline social communities.
“We’re excited to share the Luxury Connect event through this enthusiastic group and look forward to the engagement they’ll provide for our readers, members and attendees,” said Will Hansen, Inman’s VP of events.
