You’ve enjoyed and learned from dozens of articles over the past few weeks, highlighting HW Annual’s panels and speakers. Exciting leaders like Marc King, AJ Barkley, Rene Rodriguez and William Lyons, will address attendees in fireside chats and panels like “The real estate Amazon.“But, what does a day in the life of HousingWire Annual actually look like? How will you spend your days surrounded by ‘All Things Housing’ in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona?

Below, Katie Galbraith, Senior Events Manager at HW Media, shares her experience on what a day in the life of HW Annual will look like.

“In the morning, you will start the day with a coffee on the balcony, perhaps at sunrise. Breakfast is a favorite time of day for many attendees because it’s fun to start mingling with other attendees,” Galbraith said.

Attendees who have purchased their separate seats for the October 3 Marketing Leaders Success Summit will proceed from breakfast to the event space where they can expect a keynote presentation from Tamsen Webster, author of “Find Your Red Thread.”

“The coffee break is a great time to browse all the booths, and after the Marketing Leaders Success Summit, attendees can once again join their colleagues for the Women of Influence Forum,” Galbraith said.

The forum lasts all afternoon, leading up to the Welcome Reception for HW Annual on Monday evening, and during the forum attendees can learn from six different panels and fireside chats.

“When the day is over, attendees will have just enough time to stretch their legs and freshen up before the Welcome Reception. And the perfect end to the perfect first day of HW Annual is a nightcap at the HW Annual After the party,” Galbraith said.

The Welcome Reception is a great time for attendees to reconnect with colleagues they met earlier in the day and to say hello to those who have just arrived. In addition, you can treat yourself to some drinks and snacks. After the reception, Galbraith recommends La Hacienda for dinner, but there are dozens of amazing restaurants in the Fairmont Princess Resort and around Scottsdale that attendees can try.

And that’s just the beginning ! Attendees can always look forward to Days Two and Three after an informative and fun kick-off from HW Annual. You can verify full program here.
