CREtech Announces Speakers and Location for 2019 Trailblazers Summit Event

Second Annual Exclusive C-Level Retreat For Commercial Real Estate Tech Sector Will Feature Three World-Renowned Experts on Data, Work and Demographic Trends Impacting The Industry

New York, NY (March 12, 2019)CREtech (, the largest event, data and content platform covering the commercial real estate tech industry, announces their second annual Trailblazers Summit, the most extraordinary and exclusive event organized for the commercial real estate technology sector.  Attracting the top thought-leaders, investors, startups, developers and brokers in the commercial real estate sector, the event will take place June 9-11, 2019, in stunning Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

The casual and relaxed atmosphere will feature networking sessions, world-class speakers and interactive discussions. The retreat is limited to the only 50 professionals, with the goal of convening the real movers and shakers in the commercial real estate tech sector for three days of intense discussions on the future of commercial real estate at large and specifically tech’s impact on this massive industry.

Attendees will experience two nights at the Four Diamond Snake River Lodge & Spa, exquisite dining, wilderness excursions, and hear from the most thought-provoking speakers from the tech community at large.

Keynote speakers include:

Greg Lindsay, Senior Fellow, NewCities Foundation/Director of Strategy, LA CoMotion

Lindsay’s session, “Cities-as-a-Service: What Does On-Demand Everything Mean for Real Estate?” will discuss how cities‐as‐a‐service are changing how we live, work, move, and more — and the new real estate, services, and business model opportunities this creates.

Lisa Gansky, Author of The Mesh: Why the Future of Business is Sharing/ Founder, Mesh Ventures and Instigating

Presented by entrepreneur, instigator, international speaker, and best selling author, Ganksy’s session “Squinting Toward our Future,” is dedicated to working at the intersection of technology and social innovation. Lisa’s work as an entrepreneur has aptly positioned her at the apex of the shift from industrial to platform driven value creation. Her work on trust and the sharing economy has been central in rethinking network dynamics, risk and value.

James Whittaker, Technology Executive, Engineer, and Go-To Speaker for Microsoft

Back by popular demand, Whittaker is returning to the summit to present, “Rise of the Machines: Our amazing, unnatural, subservient and uncertain future with our robot overlords.”

“The Trailblazers Summit is an extraordinary three-day event that is meant to give our attendees a view of the future of tech from the world's leading experts, but to do so in a stunning and yet very focused atmosphere,” Michael Beckerman, CEO, CREtech stated. “We intentionally try to ensure that the attendee mix provides a real cross-section of the industry and allow for terrific networking opportunities as well with the commercial real estate sector’s most influential leaders. Many people who attended last year’s Summit said it was the best event they had ever attended and I am confident this year’s will be even better,” Beckerman concluded.
