CEO of the World’s Leading Real Estate Data and Information Company Will Share Company Expansion Strategies and State Of The Tech Marketplace at Major Tech Conference in NYC
New York, NY (May 14, 2021) — CREtech, the world’s leading community of professionals devoted to technological innovation in the real estate sector has announced that Founder and CEO of CoStar Group, Andrew Florance, will deliver the opening Keynote Presentation at its first in-person real estate technology conference since 2019 in New York City on October 13.
CoStar Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSGP) is the leading provider of commercial real estate information, analytics and online marketplaces. Founded in 1987, CoStar conducts expansive, ongoing research to produce and maintain the largest and most comprehensive database of commercial real estate information.
CoStar is fundamentally changing the way commercial real estate professionals access, use and share information. Through CoStar, Florance pioneered the concept of commercial real estate firms outsourcing research functions to a third-party information provider, combining the operational efficiencies of a computer-based information system with the more thorough, standardized, and higher quality property information produced by the industry’s first independent research organization.
“The evolution of commercial real estate technologies is one of the most important discussions in our sector,” stated Michael Beckerman, CEO of CREtech, and newly launched initiative, CREtech Climate. “Through Andy’s leadership, CoStar Group has been a pioneer in driving cutting-edge property technologies through comprehensive, objective, and reliable analytics and data. We are excited and honored that Andy will be sharing his highly-respected industry perspectives and market insights with the CREtech community at our return to live events this Fall in New York,” Beckerman concluded.
Florance’s enduring commitment to innovation has been repeatedly recognized by Forbes magazine, which has named CoStar among the 100 Most Innovative Growth Companies in the world, as well as one of Forbes Fast Tech 25 and one of Fortune magazine’s 100 Fastest Growing Companies. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the company maintains offices throughout North America, Europe and Asia with a staff of more than 4,700 worldwide.
Back bigger than ever before, CREtech New York attendees will be able to connect in-person with the most prestigious group of real estate tech professionals in the world while enjoying the Pier 36 venue, a state of the art sports and entertainment facility located on South Street in Manhattan. The building boasts over 70,000 sq ft of space, and has a 15,000 sq ft deck which overlooks the East River, and has views of downtown Manhattan, South Street Seaport, the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges, and the Statue of Liberty.
Real estate executives from around the world will attend the conference to network, uncover new investment opportunities, and acquire cutting-edge products and services that are at the forefront of the industry’s digital transformation.
