DocuSign was excited to be part of Inman News’ Real Estate Connect San Francisco, the groundbreaking annual event now in its eighteenth year. This year’s conference ran from July 16 through July 18, providing an opportunity for real estate professionals to mix, mingle and expand their knowledge of industry-related trends and technology.

As a gold sponsor of the event, we had a number of activities on tap. On Tuesday, July 15, we sponsored the Broker War Room, which was the place to be for brokers who were looking to get down into the trenches and sharpen their competitive edges. The room was buzzing as brokers discussed insights into what matters most to their agents, their business and their consumers.

Then on Wednesday, July 16, the action really started heating up. The DocuSign booth was buzzing as attendees came by to learn more about the new updates to DocuSign Transaction Management. On that same day, our chief policy officer and vice president of legal and corporate affairs Ken Moyle was part of a conference session called “Bridging the Product Gap.” This session is designed to connect the dots in order to create a delightful consumer experience for buyers.

On Thursday, July 17, we will be hosted our DocuSign Broker morning from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. at the flagship Apple store in San Francisco where DocuSign co-founder Tom Gonser and vice president of real estate, Glenn Shimkus shared some of the new development coming up for DTM. That evening, we were thrilled to host a VIP party at the top of the Hilton hotel. With sweeping views of San Francisco, the views were a great backdrop to a fantastic party! Bravo TV celebrity and DocuSign ambassador Madison Hildebrand was the host of the party and it was great to hear him share his insights about how DocuSign has impacted him and his business.

Finally, on Friday, July 18 at 9:40 a.m. Madison Hildebrand took the Connect stage to discuss “Dispatches from the Epicenter of the Luxury Market”. He was be joined by Hilton & Hyland general manager Jennifer Berman Holt and they had a fascinating conversation about serving the luxury market.
