MIPIM PropTech 2019: 5 quotes to inspire your digital future

By Switch Automation • November 22, 2019

More than 1,500 property and technology professionals from 50+ countries attended MIPIM PropTech NYC last week to discover the latest developments in property technology.

Our team came away from the event inspired by the current state of digitization in building operations. It’s clear from our conversations that enterprises are ready to leverage digital facilities management to put their building data to work for them.

Here is a round-up of the top 5 quotes we found most thought-provoking at the 2-day event.

“Utility rates are so high in New York that managing peak demand and getting creative with free space and scheduling is absolutely key.”

Karen Oh, Director of Energy Solutions, Vornado Realty Trust

“Every worker needs access to the 4Cs: Concentration, collaboration, convenience and community.” 

Lisa Picard, President & CEO, EQ Office

“Our goal is to create a broad, resilient infrastructure to accommodate newer, better devices over time. Flexibility is key!”

Carlos Valverde, Vice President Real Estate Development, Silverstein Properties

“PropTech is not sexy. You have to start with facilities and save energy. And then that same platform should lead to other things that make people more efficient, not just space.”

Bill Lee, Senior Director for PropTech Investments and Real Estate Development, Gaw Capital Partners

“Tech needs to be an enabler to answer a question that
people ACTUALLY have.”

Jan-Hein Lakeman, Executive Managing Director, EDGE Technologies
