PropTech 2021

Evolution or Revolution

11 August 2021

Digital technology is revolutionising real estate at an accelerating pace. If the Australian property sector follows the same path as the US, we’ll see an even greater explosion of innovation in the next few years.

As new tools help us work smarter and get closer to the needs of our customers, they also bring the risk of a widening skills gap and the fear of being left behind.

Join us at PropTech 2021 and hear expert speakers from REA Group, Airbnb, Uber, Realtair and more.

Proptech predictions revealed.

You will learn how to turn disruption into opportunity as you engage with technology in order to drive your business to the next level.

With COVID-19 accelerating our adoption of new technology, the time to get up to speed is now.
