MIPIM PropTech NYC has become a magnet for C-level real estate leaders and technologists from around the world who are interested in sharing the latest trends and how they will impact the future of their business. Last year, the conference hosted over 800 attendees from more than 500 real estate, tech and investment firms representing 33 countries, to discuss the current state and potential of the real estate technology industry.
“At last year’s event user experience and data analytics were major topics of interest, and we used the feedback we received from the event to inform our panels and speaker choices for this year,” said Filippo Rean, Head of Real Estate Markets, Reed MIDEM.
“Our attendees appreciate having a wide range of commercial real estate topics covered and by gathering industry executives, delegates from the tech community, and public officials, we aim to curate the dynamic environment that sparks important conversations on tech innovation.”
