MIPIM, the leading global real estate conference, has partnered with MetaProp NYC, the premier real estate technology nexus and RETech accelerator, to produce MIPIM PropTech Summit, the 2016 NYC Real Estate Tech Week’s flagship event. The event will be held next Wednesday, October 5, 2016, in New York.
The MIPIM PropTech Summit will be the first conference in North America to be part of the renowned MIPIM series of events, which includes MIPIM UK, MIPIM Asia Summit, MIPIM Japan and the MIPIM flagship event in Cannes, France, a four-day exhibition, conference and networking event with more than 23,000 international attendees. It will also be the first of the MIPIM series to focus exclusively on the future of the real estate market, with a heavy emphasis on the impact of technology as the real estate tech industry continues to gain momentum.
The MIPIM PropTech Summit will bring corporate real estate, government and technology professionals together under the same roof for a full day of panels and networking opportunities. The keynote addresses will be delivered by Alicia Glen, Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development, New York City; Brad Hargreaves, Co-Founder and CEO, Common; Paul Massey, 2017 New York City Mayoral Candidate – President, New York Investment Sales, Cushman & Wakefield, and William Rudin , Vice Chairman and CEO, Rudin Management Co., Inc. Each speaker will offer their unique perspectives of government, RETech and traditional real estate to address the profound impact technology is making on real estate in New York and globally.
During the course of the MIPIM PropTech Summit, speakers will discuss key topics including:
- An overview of PropTech: Leading international real estate and property technology investors discuss what’s what in property technology.
- Government’s role in PropTech: Hear more about this burgeoning specialty from some of the leaders in government real estate, government affairs, and real estate technology.
- The real estate industry’s next frontier: Learn about the most cutting-edge technologies in real estate that will shape the next generations of PropTech.
- PropTech on a global level: How are regional new technologies going international as PropTech interest continues to grow?
“We’ve been seeing strong interest in these themes globally,” said Filippo Rean, Head of Reed MIDEM’s Real Estate Division. “And with New York being the country’s epicenter of technological innovation, this day is shaping up to be one of the industry’s most exciting, diverse and thought-provoking events of the year.”
A Unique Opportunity for Startups
In addition to the gold-standard conference sessions, the MIPIM PropTech Summit will host the first ever North America stop in the Global Startup Competition Series. The competition provides startups with an opportunity to meet and pitch business to relevant investors, developers, financial companies, media, analysts and other key influencers. The NY winner will compete against startups from stops in London (October 21, at MIPIM UK) and Hong Kong (November 29 at the 11th edition of MIPIM Asia) and will qualify for the final competition at Reed MIDEM’s MIPIM event, in Cannes, France.
“The first-ever MIPIM Startup Competition was a resounding success last year. We intend to significantly strengthen the presence of real estate technology at our MIPIM events, with the launch of the first-ever Innovation Forum at MIPIM UK, as well as an inaugural Hackathon, co-organised by Future Proptech,” explains Filippo Rean.
