How technology will redefine real estate and why companies must prepare now
 (Open to members and non-members)

As technology exerts a greater influence on all aspects of our lives, the presentation and panel will examine the various dimensions and impacts of technological change in the workplace. The digital age is changing the face of business while this has brought a myriad of advantages, it has also created significant challenges. Harnessed in the right way, technology can be an enormous asset.
