Public Sector Proptech22

Wednesday 2nd November – One Great George Street, Westminster, London

We are delighted to announce the inaugural Public Sector Proptech conference.

Proptech22 is the only event dedicated to this key area for the whole of the public sector and its property and property technology professionals.

Property technology is having an ever increasing influence on the property lifecycle of the public sector estate. Its adoption is becoming a key area and we will be gathering public sector property and property technology professionals at Proptech22 on what promises to be an exciting and informative day.

Public Sector Proptech 2022 will give public sector delegates opportunities to engage with their peers, discuss, network and gather the latest information on the challenges, technologies, case studies and best practice in the property technology landscape.

We are delighted to be supported at the event by senior figures from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, the Office of Government Property, Government Property Agency, RICS, the UK PropTech Association and techUK.

Delegates will be able to listen to the keynote addresses from these leading figures in the plenary and to network throughout the day in the vibrant exhibition area. In addition, there will be a number of breakout sessions featuring both public sector and property technology organisations addressing the delegates around the solutions and services that they can provide to assist with public sector’s property technology journey.

Building stronger communities and happier residents by unlocking powerful data.
With almost 90% of the world’s data being produced in the last 2 years and with the estimation of more than 75 billion IoT devices being connected by 2025, we are in a time of digital disruption. Everyone expects more; residents, employees and board members alike.
