Real Estate Tech: Navigating The New Frontier
February 28, 2017
UJA Conference Center
130 East 59th Street
New York City
6:30pm - 8:30pm
Panel discussion/ Cocktail Reception
Please join the Brown University Alumni in Real Estate Group (BREG) for a thought provoking discussion on emerging real estate technology and its undeniable impact on the industry. While other industries have been quick to embrace technology, the $12.6 trillion dollar real estate industry overall has been slow to adapt and, at times, resistant. Today, as the direct result of increased interest and investment, there has been a proliferation in the number of real estate tech startups. Technology is now the game changer affecting every aspect of real estate. The bottom line is that an investment in real estate tech can pay off with a high return.
We are pleased to present an all Brown alumni panel of innovators, entrepreneurs, architects, investors, developers, and others.
For this event, we have assembled two unique panels. The first will feature the entrepreneurs and innovators on the cutting edge of real estate technology. The second will showcase the builders and developers using emerging technology to run their businesses more efficiently.
Attendees will learn more about the technology disrupting the real estate industry including: artificial intelligence, virtual reality, drones, smart tech building management systems, and more
