Elevate – Innovate – Celebrate

2018 Global and Luxury Summit 

AREAA’s annual Global and Luxury Summit is widely regarded as one of the premier real estate events of the year. The Summit gives hundreds of international and luxury focused professionals a platform to discuss ideas, network, and raise the standard of their industry to new heights. Held at exclusive venues in the some of the world’s hottest markets, the Summit truly elevates the idea of what a real estate conference can be.

Chosen for its forward thinking and innovation, Seattle is the perfect host for this year’s Global and Luxury Summit. High-tech and green industries are the hallmark of this unique city, and we are taking full advantage. This year’s Summit highlights how technology and green-energy are reshaping the world of global and luxury real estate, bringing in experts from around the world to share their insight about these fascinating (and profitable) developments.

The Summit serves as an opportunity to kick-off our yearlong celebration of both AREAA’s 15th anniversary, as well as the 50th anniversary of the landmark Fair Housing Act of 1968. This act guaranteed that people of all color, creed, and background had the same rights and access to homeownership as everyone else and has allowed generations of AAPI to achieve the American Dream of homeownership. Even though great progress has been made since the passage of this historic act, there is still much work to be done. For the last 15 years, AREAA has been a champion of this cause, and we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.

Home to some of the world’s largest companies, such as Microsoft and Amazon, Seattle is on the very cutting edge of high tech and green innovation. Seattle’s air and sea ports make the city a vital player in international trade, especially with Asia.

A visitor can go from one of the most high tech offices in the world, to exploring prehistoric evergreen forests all in a single afternoon.
