This year´s central topic at Prague Property Forum will be the digital transformation effectively changing the real estate market. The event, which will be held for the second time in Prague, is organised by Property Forum in close cooperation with RICS. The conference has attracted highly respected speakers from the Czech as well as European property markets, some of them being present in Prague for the first time.

“For Property Forums in 2018 we have decided to focus on technology and innovation as they are rapidly changing the real estate game. Digitalisation has affected the entire property development cycle starting with the early design, project management, leasing, sale process and long-term asset management. But its not only about newly-built schemes, existing properties can also adopt many of these innovations. I am delighted that representatives of companies that have prepared and have been using such digital solutions had accepted our invitation to share their experience with us,” said Csanad Csüros, CEO of Property Forum.
The programme of Prague Property Forum is split into three parts. The first one is dedicated to macroeconomic predictions for Europe and focuses on Central Europe as an investment destination. An individual panel will describe the current situation on the Czech property investment market. The second part of the conference will be highlighted by the presentation of global proptech guru James Dearsley. Individual panels will provide a detailed look at the retail and logistics markets, in addition to alternative investments such as student housing. The third part, called The Future of Real Estate, deals with the latest technologies in commercial real estate, with special regards to their design, construction and market valuation.
