“We are absolutely thrilled to announce that Emily Wright will be joining our CREtech team to lead all content for our growing conference and content company,” stated Michael Beckerman, CEO, CREtech. “Emily is widely recognized as one of the leading voices in the technology and sustainability marketplace within the built world. Given the tremendous challenges and opportunities that the built world is confronting today from return to work to sustainability to labor and supply chain challenges, having an accomplished journalist like Emily leading our content efforts will ensure our global audience is presented with the best insights and speakers to help them navigate through these turbulent times,” Beckerman concluded.

Regarding her move to CREtech, Wright stated, “Having followed CREtech’s growth in the UK market closely since 2019, I can’t think of a better place to take the content I love from the page to the stage. The opportunity to curate live content to help the industry unpick, tackle and better understand some of the thorniest issues it has faced in decades is one not to be passed up. I want to bring speakers to the stage, guests to the podcast and case studies to the fore that will bring something new and fresh to a discerning, ambitious audience. With carefully selected speakers, both from within the real estate world and beyond, the goal is to deliver fresh perspectives, new ideas and - above all else – actionable inspiration.”
