NAR Annual 2015: A Recap of Placester’s Time in San Diego
By Matthew Bushery
When it comes to real estate conferences, 2015 has seen its fair share of unique, grand, wonderful events, each of which has afforded agents, brokers, and other industry members the opportunities to grow professionally and personally — and the National Association of REALTORS®’ REALTORS® Conference & Expo (or NAR Annual) is no different. This year, the NAR conference was held in sunny San Diego, where roughly 20,000 Realtors headed to hear from notable personalities, grasp new marketing and sales concepts, try out the latest in real estate tech, and have an enjoyable and memorable experience.
Of course, not every Realtor could go to this year’s iteration, so we’ve decided to paint the picture of what the scene in San Diego was like during the highly beloved four-day real estate conference. Check out incredible photos and footage (not to mention humorous and insightful social media shares) from the San Diego Convention Center below and see what it was like to attend what is arguably the biggest and best real estate industry conference of the year — including ones from the Placester team, who was ecstatic to be a primary sponsor of the event!
