The International Symposium was a dynamic three-day event featuring several informative panels and lively discussions covering various topics pertinent to selling and marketing luxury homes around the world. Keynote speaker Giuseppe Tomasetti, a former international business lawyer and the founder of Tomasetti Family Winery, addressed the present state of the luxury real estate market through a range of perspectives and examined a variety of external influences that play a role. Further topics discussed included ‘Successes, Difficulties and Challenges of the European Markets,’ ‘How September 11, 2001, Had an Increasing Effect on Real Estate Transactions Around the World’ and ‘Blockchain: Beyond Bitcoin.’

Key luxury brokers from around the world discuss the future of the real estate industry.

“A common refrain from the experts throughout a wide band of luxury markets was the motivation of buyers seeking a lifestyle. This desire of the wealthiest people to seek out properties and places that provide a quality of life and a place to gather the family for a respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life bodes well for the continued health of the Telluride market,” said Van Gelder.

The event allowed attendees the opportunity to connect with other luxury real estate professionals, discuss the latest trends in the industry and develop long-lasting business relationships to expand their global referral network.
