Over the past 3 years, the commercial real estate industry has experienced immense change. This is mostly, if not fully, due to the rapid introduction of PropTech solutions. While these new tools are designed to deliver increased efficiency and value to their users, they can sometimes cause the opposite effect. New technology like this often comes with questions like, how will this affect the bottom line of the business, and when is the right time to invest? Luckily for us, there’s an event to help us navigate this change: NYC Real Estate Tech Week 2019.
Now in its fourth year, NYC Real Estate Tech Week will be bigger than ever. This year’s event will take place on November 11th to the 15th at various locations across Manhattan and Brooklyn. With a packed agenda and over 3,500 attendees from 40+ countries, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, especially with all the opportunities to get involved. Here’s how you can squeeze every bit of value out of the week-long event.
What to Expect
Under the NYC Real Estate Tech Week umbrella are 12 different events serving various audiences. However, the primary goal of the week is to help the community understand how PropTech is shaping the future of the industry. Whether you are looking to be more strategic about investments, understand the PropTech landscape more clearly, or simply make more connections in the industry, there is an event for you. Here is a breakdown of the key events and new launches to add to your schedule:
