The pandemic has dealt a blow to real estate industries worldwide, especially in the US. The situation has led to massive downturns in the market.

Following this, numerous group investors have begun to lose interest in the market, instead exploring other options. Nonetheless, companies in the industry continue to generate massive returns.

It’s noteworthy that the US commercial real estate market alone is worth around $4.5 trillion, despite the effect of the pandemic on some companies.

Regardless of the recent recession, the industry is projected to grow tremendously in the future, especially in areas facing massive innovation and industrialization.

To facilitate this, a group of experts are coming together to exploit endless options that will positively impact the market in 2021.

From developing new alternatives such as technology applications and organizing innovation conferences to educate older and first-time investors about scalable real estate investing. These training programs aim to revitalize the market.

What Is Real Estate Technology?

Whether you are a CEO or Newbie, understanding the concept and its importance is key to devising innovation-driven ways

of solving issues in the industry. Real estate technology, otherwise known as property technology, focuses on information technology and platform economics applications in the general property market. Property technology encompasses property management, the infusion of innovative home technologies, automation, 3D-building, and many more technologies.

The real estate technology space continues to pave the way for advancements in the development of the market, especially in big data management and artificial intelligence.

These advancements aim to mitigate the effects of COVID-19 by changing the way the world responds to real estate trading in a virtual technology-driven world.

What’s Obtainable at Real Estate Conferences

Attending a real estate technology conference (RETCON), be it virtual or live, is an excellent way to connect with experts and knowledgeable real estate investors. RETCON offers a perfect opportunity for networking and learning about commercial real estate in various areas.

By bringing together top professionals and industry leaders (CEO, MD, influencers) in the market for a multifamily exercise, the conference is a global meeting point for sharing ideas and for fostering relationships.

All events do not come as conferences as they can also take the form of expos, event forums, email meetings, and event webinars.

Before attending real estate conferences, it’s crucial to evaluate yourself and your services by asking yourself a few questions so that you understand your purpose for attending the conference. You should understand why you intend to join a RETCON, which is one of the first digital (virtual) tech events with speakers from companies around the globe.

Be sure to see this as a sign of responsibility on your part to make the best out of the tech event or summit.

In recent times, these virtual conferences function to keep stakeholders inspired and on top of their game. By constantly providing information on market trends and trading hacks, real estate conferences continue to serve as information links between stakeholders and their growing market.

In 2021, conferences have taken a different turn by offering a virtual experience (through a website) instead of the usual face-to-face formats.
