09 November, 2018

FUTURE:PropTech connects real estate decision-makers with PropTech founders and investors

The leading pan-European conference on innovation and digitalization in the real estate industry took place on 13th September 2018 at the most important venue of the scene – in Berlin. Approximately 400 participants assembled to participate in discussions, to attend presentations and tech-displays and to expand their network.

Review of the PropTech conference Berlin

In addition to the participants, more than 40 outstanding decision-makers shaped the course of the event with their stage program. Famous speakers like Bettina Start-Watzinger (Member of the German federal parliament, FDP), innovative startup founders such as Yotam Alroy (co-founder & chief business officer at Mindspace) and financially strong investors shared their knowledge and impressions on the continuing wave of digital transformation. Representatives of companies such as Berlin Hyp, Union Investment, Deutsche Wohnen and Commerz Real have actively participated in the event.

Focus on new technologies and innovations

The diverse program was divided into two tracks on new technologies and innovations of the industry:

  1. Prop: The focus here was on corporates and their strategies concerning digitalization and how to deal with innovations.
  2. Tech: This track was focused on those new technologies and trends that will revolutionize the sector.

The whole day was filled by a pleasant atmosphere characterized by strong interest, the desire for improvement and the lively exchange of ideas.
