The 2016 Sotheby’s International Realty Global Networking Event

From May 16th to the 18th, members of the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand met for the 2016 Global Networking Event at the Wynn in Las Vegas, Nevada. With over 2,300 attendees from around the world, this was the largest event in the history of the company. Thelma Channon and Brooke Beaty were fortunate to be in attendance for this spectacular event.

At the GNE, members of the Sotheby’s International Realty global team were afforded the ability to network with their peers from all over the world as well as attend breakout sessions featuring subject matter experts and visit a MarketPlace with all of the event’s sponsors.

Tracked with #SIRGNE, the hashtag was used over 1200 times across Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Here’s some of what people were saying on social media!  

Leading up to and over the course of the event, members from Sotheby’s International Realty network shared their “Moments.” This was a theme that carried through GNE as the brand emphasized throughout, the importance and strength of the people who make Sotheby’s International Realty a global community. Here are some of those moments:

Maya Angelou was once quoted,”everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.” The 2016 Global Networking Event was no exception; songs both new and old helped score GNE and create an exciting atmosphere. Experience the 2016 GNE Playlist!

The three-day event included rousing talks from Philip White, president and CEO, Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC; Wendy Purvey, chief marketing officer, Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC; Daniel Lamarre, president and CEO, Cirque du Soleil and a riveting performance piece by world-renowned sand artist, Joe Castillo during the general session assembly.

At the close of the event, President & CEO Philip White announced that the Sotheby’s International Realty brand would return to the Wynn and Las Vegas in September of 2017 for the next Global Networking Event. We will be back next year!
