On 8th February, Andrew Maw, our Business Development Manager, attended the ‘Digital Opportunities: Proptech from strategy to implementation’ event hosted by Place North West in Manchester.
This was a great opportunity to be surrounded by a range of leading figures within the proptech and real estate industry and a chance to find out more about the disruptive technology making a change in the CRE sector.
A couple of days before the event, the arbnco team had a very successful session with Hillbreak exploring key trends and market drivers for proptech, so it was particularly interesting for Andrew to see Jon Lovell’s presentation at the event. He focused on outlining how investment funds were looking to manage the long-term impact of technology, geopolitics and urbanisation on real estate assets.
There were also a number of notable presenters who explored topics such as how cities and local authorities have become “ripe for disruption” and which technology products were likely to see an increased uptake this year.
All slides from the presentations can be accessed on the event page, in addition to a short video which explains “What is Proptech?”
Look out for Andrew appearing in the video at around 1:02!
