Disrupt CRE Announces 2016 Schedule
Today, the technology and commercial real estate conference series, DisruptCRE announced its 2016 schedule.
First launched in October 2014, the premier full-day conference series connects commercial real estate professionals with innovative ideas and emerging CRE technologies. In 2015, DisruptCRE held conferences in Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles, Boston and Dallas.
Each conference kicks off with a well-known industry keynote speaker who provides a high level TED style talk about The State of CREtech. This is followed by a rapid-fire Intro session where each exhibiting CREtech company has 45 seconds to introduce themselves and their company, called “Meet the Disruptors.” After the fast paced intro pitch, the conference breaks for an hour of ‘Dealmaking’ where attendees can meet the disruptors, engage further, to establish or continue a relationship.
The second portion of the day includes three educational panels centered around technology and how it is facilitating changes in investment, development, management, leasing, buying, selling, & financing commercial properties.
Panel 1, “The State of CRE & Tech: Executive’s Point of View” - Get a global perspective on technology and its impact on commercial real estate from some of the most recognizable and powerful Executives in the industry. These men and women are not only on the forefront of technology in CRE but in many cases, are helping shape the future of the CREtech industry through adoption, investment and creation. Attendees will gain a rare glimpse into the minds of top industry leaders to find out what are they investing in or implementing now and what is on the horizon.
Panel 2 “Building Tech” - Learn about technology products & services serving the physical structure of buildings. From the internal building systems to tenant engagement, and advanced analysis of key data points, we are more connected to our buildings via technology, than ever before. With the use of technology we can quantify workplace design with hard data, tenants can control HVAC with the touch of a mobile app, and owners can visualize ground up developments before breaking ground with 3D tech and augmented reality. This panel will explore mobile devices and apps that control everything from space utilization to on-demand services such as parking, dry cleaning, and more. Learn about building technologies that gain and retain today’s tenants.
Panel 3 “Tech Tools” is focused on how technology is reshaping the way we work and opening the door to new opportunities. Discussion will center around the products and services available to CRE professionals to equip them for today’s industry. Commercial real estate professionals today have more tech tools at their disposal than ever before. CRM’s help to manage your relationships, listing platforms help optimize visibility to potential tenants, crowdfunding and financial technology opens alternative means of financing, the list goes on and on. This panel will help you navigate what tools are in the market, and which ones make sense for your business. Attendees will hear from industry professionals who investing in and implementing these tech tools in day to day operations.
After a full day of excitement, education and a lot of fun, the conference will conclude with networking, cocktails, and hors d'oeuvres.
