April 8th - April 10th | Parker Palm Springs

Imagining the Future

April 8-10, 2019, real estate’s best and brightest will come together in Palm Springs for Disconnect, where we will define and debate the industry’s pressing issues and build (literally) a blueprint for the future.

Who owns the transaction in five years? Who controls the data? How is the consumer experience different? What will the real estate value chain look like? Who wins, who loses?

We will dig deep on these questions on the gorgeous grounds of the Parker Hotel and off-campus in the inspiring landscape of the Coachella Valley. Then, we will actually build a physical manifestation of what that real estate world looks like, constructing the pieces of an actual model for the future. This object will then be shared across the industry, leading the way for where we all need to go.

Get ready for another mind-blowing Inman experience.

Disconnect is an invite-only event. If you didn't receive an invitation, and you think we missed you, email us at josh@inman.com.

Digging in on the important issues:

  • The Data: Who will own it, who will control it and how will it change the industry?
  • The Market: How will the market look in five years? What can we expect from individual buyers, investors, transient renters and the new demographics?
  • The Players: What are the future roles of the franchise, brokers, agents and iBuyers?
  • The Business Models: Which will take hold and how will they affect compensation and the role of agents?
  • The Transaction: On demand, certainty and seamless transactions, what does it mean?
  • The Goods & Services: How will the product we're selling look different in five years?

(Re)defining the way we do business:

  • Modern Work: How does a next-generation company deal with contractors, employees, iBuyers, and more?
  • Partnerships: They will define the industry, how?
  • Robots: Who thrives after the invasion?
  • iBuying: What does institutional buying and investment capital mean for the future of the industry?
  • The national MLS: What it will look like, who will control it, and will it be free?
  • Platforms: Who will build them and what will they do?
  • Transparency: Will radical openness expose old habits and lift up good practices or leave us all naked and afraid?

We will work through these issues on-campus at the Parker and off-campus in beautiful Palm Springs on these exclusive activities:

  • Horseback ride through the canyons
  • Golf against a glorious backdrop
  • Tour an architecturally renowned mid-century compound
  • Hike up Smoke Tree Mountain
  • Explore Moorten Botanical Gardens
  • Dye with natural, indigenous plants
