PropTech Connect will host leading organisations and cutting-edge technology solutions in the real estate sector for a two-day event at the InterContinental London — The O2, taking place from 6 to 7 September 2023.

Delivering a conference experience designed to act as a catalyst for industry change, it will bring together over 200 speakers and more than 3,000 visitors, including over 600 C-Suite guests.

“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.”

Matthew Maltzoff, CEO, Proptech Connect

Attracting everyone from VC’s to real estate pioneers, entrepreneurs and innovators across all real estate pillars, the conference aims to deliver actionable insights with a focus on driving innovation.

Attendees will learn about the next generation of real estate technology solutions from drone technology to water recycling solutions – and see all this come to life at the event’s Smart City exhibition.

“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. At the same time, at Fifth Wall’s European office, we are very keen to invest in Climate Tech to help decarbonise the built world. Real estate is both the largest asset class on earth and the largest environmental offender, that has traditionally invested almost nothing into Climate Tech. We are looking for startups and solutions to address every aspect of the carbon problem across the entire asset lifecycle.”

Miguel Nigorra, Head of Europe, Fifth Wall

Adopting a content-first approach, PropTech Connect will bring together the most insightful and inspiring speakers, with appearances from dozens of industry leaders including:

Kevin Cardona, CIO & Head of Strategic Partnerships at BNP Paribas Real Estate

Daniel Wishnia, CDTO at Aroundtown SA

Lisette van Doorn, CEO at Urban Land Institute

Samantha Kempe, CIO at IMMO Capital

Jeff Nielson, CTO at Brivo 

Lisa Picard, Partner at Sway Ventures

Miguel Nigorra, Partner and Head of Europe at real estate technology VC, Fifth Wall 

Bas Van Galen, CTO at Blackstone-backed Mileway

“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. At the event, I am eager to delve into the decision-making process of ‘Build or Buy,’ exploring the best approaches to engage proptech solutions effectively. 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.”
