According to Filippo Rean, “When we first introduced the tech startup community to the real estate sector at MIPIM, 2012, PropTech was a relatively new concept. With all the new developments and rapid innovations within the last year, real estate professionals want to discover the latest technology that can help them in their business and international investors are looking to develop and grow their investment portfolios in PropTech. MIPIM and the MIPIM PropTech Summit bring them together to discuss the vast possibilities.
