Gary Walter MRICS, our CEO, was recently invited to be one of the speakers at the RICS seminar in Hong Kong ‘ Review of PropTech trends and innovations for the Property Professional’. This was alongside other speakers from the industry – Philip Pang – Colliers International, Leo Lo – Asia PropTech, Nigel Ko – V Sensing Lab and Nick Andrew – Arcadis.
Topics included the latest on blockchain, data, AI, tokenization, funding in PropTech, flexible workspaces, smart buildings, 3D mapping and IoT. We talked specifically on how tech can add value for the real estate professional in our daily work. We also examined the current state of the industry in terms of processes, breaking some of these down individually to explore how the use of PropTech can be applied to each to improve efficiency, save costs and to create value opportunities.
