What is billed as Europe’s largest PropTech event takes place in London this week, on September 6 and 7.
PropTech Connect will host cutting-edge technology solutions at the InterContinental London — The O2.
The conference claims it will deliver “a catalyst for industry change” bringing together over 200 speakers and more than 3,000 visitors .
Industry figures include representatives from Cushman & Wakefield, CBRE, Amazon, Barratt Developments, BlackRock, British Land, Brookfield Asset Management, Citibank, Colliers, Costar, DoveVivo, Google, Greystar, Invesco, J.P. Morgan, JLL, Landsec, RICS, Rightmove, Airbnb, Lendlease and Schroders.
The conference’s chief executive, Matthew Maltzoff, says: “We live in an incredibly exciting time. The sheer range of technologies available to real estate companies means the industry is unrecognisable when compared with the turn of the century. When it comes to deployment of funds, environmental concerns and consumer choice, this is a sector that is transforming itself and the way we live in a very short space of time, and PropTech Connect is a glimpse of this future all under one roof.”
Endorsing the conference, a spokesperson for Fifth Wall – a venture capital company underwriting some PropTech developments – says:“PropTech is no longer a ‘nice to have’ for real estate owners and operators. They are embracing technology to mitigate operational challenges, create new business opportunities, identify new revenue drivers and address cost challenges related to labour, material procurement and construction.”
And a spokesperson for Plentific – a PropTech player in the UK – adds: “The industry’s progress has been remarkable, and this event will further explore how we can further accelerate tech adoption across real estate. Together, we can shape a future where technology plays a pivotal role in transforming the way we interact with real estate and create lasting value for all stakeholders … As we embrace new advancements, the collaboration between real estate companies and PropTechs will be crucial in creating a more connected, sustainable, and innovative technology ecosystem.”
