The 2016 Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships will bring an air of affluence to WestWorld of Scottsdale next month.

Realty Executives Phoenix has been named the Official Real Estate Sponsor of the 2017 Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championship.

The world’s most well-attended polo event will take place Saturday, Nov. 5th on the fields at WestWorld of Scottsdale. This year, Realty Executives will be adding to the event’s featured attractions with their own hospitality and networking tent.

“With our continued growth and expansion into the luxury home market, partnering with The Polo Party again this year is a fantastic way for us to stay connected with the affluent community in the Valley,” said Mary Frances Coleman, CEO of Realty Executives Phoenix. “This year, our presence will be exceptionally strong as we debut a new VIP tent for the movers and shakers of Valley real estate.”

The Realty Executives VIP tent will offer an exclusive opportunity for industry networking on the sidelines of Arizona’s hottest sporting event. Industry guests will receive VIP access to the tent, along with signature cocktails and catering hosted by Realty Executives.

“We designed our VIP experience to foster connectivity and conversation among the Valley’s top Realtors, so our guests have the opportunity to mix and mingle in a relaxed atmosphere,” Ms. Frances said.

The Realty Executives VIP tent will have its own ticket and credential available only by invitation from Realty Executives and is not available on The Polo Party website.

The rapidly growing event continues to expand with exciting polo- and non-polo-related activities such as previews of the 2017 Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show and the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction as well as Phoenix Fashion Week showcasing the World’s “Longest” Catwalk Fashion Show.

Canine lovers are invited to have their pups strike a pose in the returning Canine Couture Fashion show produced by “Oh My Dog!” Boutique and Spa.

Other new event additions include the “The Women’s Sunset Polo Match” which is certain to be quite the production.

Attendees can also enjoy cultural entertainment from the Scottsdale Philharmonic, Arizona Opera and Grammy Awards hip hop and rap performer, DJ Maestro Hughes.  Art lovers can head over to the ArtPolo Auction Pavilion featuring a daylong auction of artwork by Scottsdale-based artist J. Levine.

On a weekend when there is no Arizona Cardinals or Arizona State Sun Devil football to watch, the Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championship will be a prime opportunity to spend time outdoors in the community with friends and family.  Local polo club Polo Azteca will kick-off the festivities at 10:30 a.m., facing off against the visiting team from La Jolla. At 12:30 p.m. Arizona Polo Club will battle Palm Springs Polo on the pitch.

The main event begins at 2:30 p.m. with the nationally-renowned and defending champion Aspen Valley Polo Club pitted in contest against the Palm Beach Polo Club featuring special guest Ricky Cooper. The fun continues up until 6 p.m. with a post-match after party, concert and fireworks display, which will cap off what will be an extraordinary event.
