PROPTECH

Our Objectives

  • Raise the profile of PropTech, establishing its relevance across property activities from investment through construction to management
  • Grow a network of knowledgeable and forward thinking people and companies involved in PropTech
  • Utilise this network to actively engage with the property industry to use technology to solve problems and create real change
  • The TLA PropTech group is growing to incorporate a more expansive view of what property technology really is. Our future built environment will include smart cities, dynamic infrastructure, connected places and innovative operation models. By bringing these elements together TLA is tapping in to knowledgeable and responsive tech-focused professionals who are encouraging an industry which has been slow to change.
  • Together we have the potential to influence everything from business evolution to disruptive innovation. Making cities more sustainable, transform near-derelict spaces through entrepreneurship and make built assets work harder.
  • Cities of the future are about impact and an important part of this is joining up the silos. Future events and focus for this group will allow us to bring all of these different facets together.

Planned activity

  • Opportunities to attend and participate in two of the leading property industry events Revo 2017 & MIPIM 2018
  • Collaborative events and activities with other TLA working groups for the Built Environment
  • Regular communications and a member-led newsletter will keep all up-to-date and informed with latest industry news & innovations
  • Social media support for members’ new launches, events or other news of interest

Revo 2017

Opportunities for the TLA working group members across PropTech; RetailTech; Infrastructure & Smart Cities to participate in a digital showcase at the Revo Conference & Exhibition in September https://www.revocommunity.org/eventspages/revo_2017/home

The annual Revo event is the largest UK retail property deal making and networking event of the year.

Bringing together the most influential and inspirational players from across the sector – owners/investors, developers, retailers, retail property agents, professional service consultants, a host of leading service providers, public sector representatives and retail, food, beverage and leisure occupiers and operators – offering unrivalled access to the greatest retail property networking, deal making and learning opportunities.

At both Revo and MIPIM, PropTech will be running a DiscoTech, a focused client-led activity developed by Mat, which:

  • Provides an opportunity for client organisations to discover new technology (DiscoTech), ideas and potential solutions to business challenges that they face
  • Facilitates the exposure of businesses to the unique skills and expertise available from the SME and start-up community in a managed scenario
  • Builds collaborations that have the potential to be continued into commercial co-creation beyond the DiscoTech

We aim to provide TLA members with an important platform for exposure to their target audience of clients and key players, in the retail & urban place-making sectors.
