1. Keynote: Unpacking PropTech


The use of data and technology in the built environment (often referred to as PropTech) has risen up the agenda recently, but how exactly is it changing how the sector works? This keynote session will focus on the wider technology-driven transformation encasing the profession and the direct influence and impact this may have.
