First Mipim Proptech Europe conference

Global leaders in real estate, technology and venture capital recentlycame together at the inaugural edition of Mipim PropTech Europe, to take their business to the next level and build the future of property in the European Market. The two-day event, held in Paris, hosted some 1,500 attendees representing 47 countries, among them over 100 speakers who discussed the current state and future potential of the burgeoning real estate technology industry.

“Today we have on the one hand startups who are providing incredible solutions for the real estate industry and we also have investors who are keen to incorporate proptech into their portfolios, so the timing couldn’t be better for the launch of Mipim PropTech Europe to make the connection between these two industries,” commented Filippo Rean, Director of the Real Estate Division of Reed Midem, who has launched Mipim PropTech events in NY and Europe.

Speaking on the panel session “A History of Innovation in the Built Environment,” Roma Agrawal, who has designed skyscrapers with renowned architects, including The London Shard, the tallest building in Western Europe packed with technology innovations, acknowledged that there is a dichotomy between the length of a building’s life cycle and the adoption of ‘emergency’ new technology. “It’s a challenge. From the time that a vision is conceived for a building, to completion, it’s sometimes already out of date. As engineers, we need to be better at engaging with technology companies, and need to make our structures as open and flexible as possible to allow for new technologies,” Agrawal noted.
