Ridgewood NJ, on August 15, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance® marked its 70th anniversary with the support of several premier brands, including Christie’s International Real Estate Northern New Jersey, as well as five other Christie’s International Real Estate network Affiliates. Also aligned in support of the world’s premier car collecting event were iconic names such as watchmaker Ulysse Nardin and car manufacturer McLaren, both brands known for the art of engineering. 

Participants who have entered their cars in the vintage competition include some of the most influential collectors in the world, as are their guests and the international spectators who attended the event. 

Dan Conn, CEO of Christie’s International Real Estate, said: “The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance® is host to the finest exhibition of collectible automobiles in the world. Car collectors from around the world gather to celebrate the finest examples of automotive excellence — old and new. We are proud to sponsor and support the Concours and to take part in the events surrounding it, this year including our hosting of events with automotive, wine and watch brand partners. It is at marquee events like these that enduring relationships are formed, and the presence of members of our global real estate network at the Concours is one important element of what sets our network apart from our competition. We are so proud to be associated with the Concours.”

The Concours d’Elegance® is the culmination of Pebble Beach Auto Week. During the days leading up to the finale, Christie’s International Real Estate hosted a series of exclusive networking events from the McLaren suite at Carmel Valley Ranch. These included test drives of McLaren models 720S, GT and Elva; a wine tasting co-hosted by Christie’s International Real Estate and McLaren; and a separate VIP cocktail reception. Ulysse Nardin specialists conducted a series of exclusive and small audience watch demonstrations. Affiliate property banners and brochures featuring fine real estate were on prominent display.

On Sunday, for the finale, Christie’s International Real Estate moved to its hospitality headquarters to the Lodge at Pebble Beach on the storied 18th fairway where the vintage cars were parked for judging. Competitors and spectators spent the day admiring the cars and awaiting the judges’ decisions in a variety of categories. The central location of the Christie’s International Real Estate suite engaged potential buyers and sellers of real estate and showcased exceptional homes resonating with highly qualified buyers.
