Poll - What is appropriate attire at a real estate convention?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Zillow

I got a kick out of reading someone call Spencer (Zillow CFO/CMO) out for not having a tie on when being interviewed the other day.  Then he got called out again on our corporate blog.  Guess he won't make that mistake again...

But it does bring up a question that we often internally discuss- what is the right male attire when representing a dot com company at real estate conventions?  It can be challenging because the audience is usually dressed so diversely, from cowboy boots to full suits.

I think this is one of those "know your demographics" issues.  Dress to your audience.  Obviously the poll will help with that rather than calling everyone and asking them what they are going to wear :)

A suit is a uniform that conveys authority.  People do judge a book by it's cover.  Dressing suitably also conveys respect for your audience.
