Companies large and small, from tech startups to brokerages and franchises, come to Connect to make the deals that grow their business. “We’ve closed some deals here with clients from New Zealand, Australia — all over the United States. It’s been beyond our wildest expectations” said John Gafford, Reel Tour.
The content is laser-focused on understanding what’s next for the housing market, discovering new and useful technology, hearing from influential, different and crusading speakers and good and bad externalities that may shake up the industry. The give-and-take, presentations and conversations from the stage, in the hallways, in the bars, and at the parties have shaped many companies and helped to launch tiny start-ups — like Zillow, ZipRealty and Trulia.
“We don’t pride ourselves on being superficially different; we pride ourselves on tapping into the passion, the new ideas and the creativity of the smartest folks in the industry, who know no bounds.” – Brad Inman
Many brokers come to Connect and rethink their offer, their culture and their entire business:
“Connect is utterly life-changing. I used to think I couldn’t afford to spend the time at Inman Connect, and now I’m absolutely steadfast in the belief that I cannot afford not to attend,” said Peter Lorimer, Broker/CEO PLG Estates Beverly Hills
“Inman conferences have provided our real estate technology launch and platform with a perfect pad. Not only were we able to connect with industry leading influencers, but we received valuable input, feedback and endorsement from a broad spectrum of conference participants. This list includes developers, other technology teams, franchise management teams, brokerage owners, MLS influencers and ultimately, end users. Every conference we have attended has been a win, win, win for us,” added Tom MacLeod, CEO, PocketList.
“We had big brokers give verbal commitment to notable, near term purchases. We met with CEOs of big companies like KW, Better Homes, Stewart Title, CMLS, etc. who would otherwise be impossible to meet,” said David Cunningham, Founder, HomeAhead.
Connect is carefully choreographed by its founder, Brad Inman, to include an exacting mix of outsider thinkers, artists, creators, inventors and entrepreneurs — along with the best and brightest from the industry.
Connect is about the wicked smart people from every corner of the industry — many are successful young brokers, agents and rebels who want to change the business and have no fear of gutting the ways of the old guard.
“We don’t pride ourselves on being superficially different; we pride ourselves on tapping into the passion, the new ideas and the creativity of the smartest folks in the industry, who know no bounds,” said Brad Inman. “Inman is it readers, and Connect is our community.”
With more than 4,000 attendees anticipated, this Connect will be the largest yet. Held at the newly remodeled Hilton Union Square in San Francisco, Connect will host the industry’s leading thinkers and doers for four days of insights, networking and deal-making.
