DisruptCRE, the national technology and commercial real estate conference series, will be hosting the 2nd Annual DisruptCRE Dallas conference on Thursday, November 10th high atop the city’s tallest high-rise. At 72 stories and rising 921 feet above the street, Bank of America Plaza is a magnet for activity in the Central Business District and home to a wide array of the region’s most prestigious businesses.
DisruptCRE brings industry professionals and entrepreneurs together to provide educational and thought provoking discussions centered around emerging CRE technologies. Topics range from IoT (Internet of Things) that are being integrated into our commercial buildings, tenant engagement and concierge services, to newer “Tech Tools” such as virtual reality, and real estate’s secondary market.
“We take the topics that are crucial to the future of this industry, and unpack them in a way that makes it easy to digest,” says Mariel Ebrahimi DisruptCRE CEO and conference day host.
The educational side of the conference day kicks off with a rapid-fire segment called “Meet the Disruptors” where participating CRE tech companies have 45 seconds to pitch their company to attendees. Some of the companies include TurningArt, StealthForce, Bractlet, Building Connected, Comfy, Matterport, VTS, ParkHub, MRI Software, Real Liquidity and others.
Three educational panels are provided, anchored by the popular “State of CRE & Tech: The Executive’s POV,” where some of the most recognizable and powerful executives in the industry will shed light on how technology is affecting the industry on a local and global scale. Executive’s will also explore the CRE tech products and services that are currently in the marketplace, what they are investing in or implementing now, and what technology on the horizon gets them excited.
Panel participants include industry titans such as Jesse Carrillo, SVP & CIO at Hines; Jordan Nof, Head of Investments at Tusk Ventures; Pushpa Gowda, EVP, Global Technology Presence Director at JLL; Linda McMahon, President & CEO at The Real Estate Council; Alec Manfre, CEO & Co-Founder at Braclet; Robert Johnson, Director of National Facilities for The Howard Hughes Corporation; Grant Pruitt, President & Managing Director at Whitebox Real Estate, Poonam Sharma Mathis, Founder & CEO at StealthForce; Kevin Guy, CEO at RealLiquidity and Chad Lindsey, VP of Global IT at JLL; among others.
The conference closes with a casual “cocktails and nosh” networking event where attendees can re-visit the showcase for networking and demos to engage personally with the tech companies, sponsors, VC’s, and other real estate industry leaders.
