With day moderators Prof Greg Clark CBE - Global Advisor on Cities and Evan Davis UK broadcaster and journalist.
For the last two years the EPRA conference has focussed on disruptive innovation, with futurist speakers outlining the impact on societies and economies in the coming decade. 2018 will narrow the theme down to real estate, discussing current disruptions and the short-term future impact on our sector at an asset level.
The challenge is to rethink, debate and reshape the perspective on how RE must adapt to fast-paced disruption. Following inspirational keynote speeches, two leaders from the retail and office disruption models will rival the traditional suppliers in a debate about the future of these sectors with a proptech pitching session.
