FUTURE:PropTech London – Review

04 Juli, 2018

FUTURE:PropTech fills big halls in London


When FUTURE: PropTech started in 2015, none of the 50 attendees imagined that three years later, this event would be Europe's most prestigious and largest startup conference for the real estate sector. It stands for the rapid change process that has captured the industry.

This year, 1,600 participants from more than 400 companies from 38 different countries attended the Business Design Center on 2 May in London. In addition to the relaxed exchange and new impressions of high-profile speakers, innovative startups and financially strong investors, the participants were presenting a wide range of services - from case studies of selected PropTechs to lectures and panel discussions related to innovations in the residential and commercial sector.

In addition to the high caliber conference program with speakers such as Brendan Wallace (Fifth Wall), Duke Long (PUR Ventures), Bernard Michel (Gecina) and Duncan Watts (Google), this time exhibitors covered a large area.

Positive feedback on the quality and the pleasant atmosphere and comments on the wave of digital transformation already existed during the event in the social networks.

PropTech Competition

Many investors have also sought a conversation with meaningful startups. In addition, the results of the largest European PropTech competition were announced by the Real Estate Innovation Network (REIN).

The best 25 start-ups can now look forward to a booth at the EXPO REAL in Munich. PwC was also on the jury with Julia Arlt (Director, Innovation in Real Estate) and David Nadge (Manager, Digital Real Estate). In cooperation, the joint PropTech Map was created.
