This year’s Propel by MIPIM featured 40+ conference sessions, 60+ speakers, and leaders sharing exclusive insights about the US and global markets. There was also no shortage of networking moments, giving the up-and-coming talents of the industry a chance to chat one-on-one with the biggest proptech players in the US and beyond.
The conference was built on five pillars, reflecting the industry’s key concerns. These ranged from sustainability to user experience, investment, data and talent. There was also an opportunity to profile the unique evolution of the city of New York as it emerges from the pandemic, while cementing its place as perhaps the global capital for proptech.
Against the backdrop of the main themes, there was also plenty of chance to debate topics such as diversity & inclusion, decarbonization, future of work, SPACs, and cybersecurity.
Fireside chats with major names, including Don Peebles, Bredan Wallace, François Lacoursière, Scott Rechler and Michael Phillips slowed the pace for some thoughtful discussion of the industry’s pain points – and enormous prospects.
As VTS founder Nick Romito noted, “we are entering the golden age of proptech”, adding that “there is more change happening in real estate now than in 50 years prior” and that the industry would be asking the proptech community to solve an “’unprecedented number of problems”. He concluded: “We have become a category, and we matter.”
For actors, partners and investors in proptech, 2022 is set to define a rewarding and meaningful path towards further consolidation and opportunity.
