A summit dedicated to real estate technology will be a flagship event of the New York City Real Estate Tech Week 2016 on 5 October.
The invitation-only MIPIM PropTech Summit is the result of a partnership between global real estate conference organiser Reed Midem and MetaProp NYC, a real estate tech firm and RETech accelerator.
It will also be the first of the MIPIM series – others are held in Cannes, the UK and Japan – to focus exclusively on the future of the real estate market and the impact of technology.
“Recognising that real estate has reached the tipping point in the rapidly growing importance of PropTech, Reed Midem sees New York City as the epicentre of this movement and the clear choice to host our North America MIPIM PropTech Summit,” said Filippo Rean, Head of the Real Estate Division for Reed Midem.
The Summit will also feature the inaugural North America stop in the Global Start-up Competition Series, which allows start-ups to meet investors, developers, analysts and other key influencers. The winner will compete against start-ups from stops in London and Hong Kong and will qualify for the final competition to be held at Reed Midem’s MIPIM event, in Cannes, France.
New York City Real Estate Tech Week 2016, from September 26 through October 7, is touted as the biggest global gathering of the real estate technology community and features with more than 20 events across New York City.
