Tranio.com partners with MIPIM PropTech Europe 2019

Paris, 6 June 2019 – The theme of MIPIM PropTech Europe will focus on users' expectations. Quality of life at work, at home and in the urban environment, the fight against global warming, the sharing economy, and affordable housing are just some of the challenges that technology innovation in the property business must address in order to give a deeper meaning to its vitality.

Organized by Reed MIDEM, a subsidiary of Reed Exhibitions, MIPIM PropTech Europe will be held in Paris on the 1st and 2nd of July.

Personalities from the world of property, technology and public authorities, together with researchers in the humanities and behavioural sciences, and experts in innovation, will discuss the answers that proptech can offer to meet users' expectations during the two days of the MIPIM PropTech Europe.

The following are among the main themes of the conference programme:
