INMAN CONNECT NEW YORK, #ICNY RECAPPED

Every winter, we count down the days until #ICNY, the Inman Connect Conference in New York. For many of us, it’s a chance to reconnect with friends, establish new connections, take business meetings, announce new products, collaborate on ideas, and get recharged by the speakers and panelists who plant the seeds within us for our yearly growth. Every year is bigger than the next, and this year was no exception. We interviewed several INMAN Connect Speaker and Ambassador Alums to hear what they were taking away from #ICNY 2016.
