[LONDON] Talking Proptech with Charlotte Mc Carty, Director of Marketing & Partnerships at FUTURE:Proptech
Proptech (short term for Property Technology) is all about disrupting the real estate industry. How? By looking at it differently. Not just focusing on buildings but also on how technology can be used to transform the market by understanding better the end-consumers, their needs and expectations. One of the biggest event in the sector is FUTURE:Proptech THE conference all about the topic. Started by Gary Chimwa it is THE annual meeting for the industry, happening in London and 2 other cities (scroll down to know which one :)). How does the PropTech industry sees coworking? We sat down with Charlotte Mc Carty, Director of Marketing and Partnerships for the conference to talk about it.
