Tech adoption remains a challenge for the commercial real estate industry. Many organizations feel overwhelmed by options and are unconfident with where to even begin.

Over three-days, demystify some of the most important innovations like 5G and cybersecurity, while learning how to create a tech-infused company culture that rewards innovation.

Tune in to our “how-to” series and learn from best-in-class thought leaders about how to select the right tech solutions for your business, how to green your portfolio, how to onboard them in the most efficient manner, and even how to evaluate the investment. Topics to be explored span all aspects of the real estate sector including office, multifamily, logistics, mixed-use, retail, construction, ESG and more.

      INTERACTION SESSION: Workplace Relationships: Using Technology to Help Tenants Embrace the New Normal

      Head to the Sessions Tab for this conversation. More businesses are rethinking their use of office space and making the shift toward hybrid work arrangements for employees. As a result, landlords must view workplace relationships differently and make the shift from a lease-centric to tenant-centric approach. While the office may change and evolve into new configurations, it isn’t going away. Real estate occupiers will require specialist technology to manage the “new normal”, and landlords play an important role in serving the new needs of tenants. Attend this session to learn: How to manage workplace safety and security and give tenants more control over their environment Benefits of space scheduling tools to manage flexible workspace How using space management software can help tenants find the optimal setup for their needs How technology helps engage tenants and build strong relationships
