The Biggest Week in PropTech Made its Comeback!

Dear MetaProp Community,

Last week marked the return of NYC Real Estate Tech Week to the Big Apple!

We kicked it off on December 6th with MetaProp's Annual Limited Partners reception, and on Tuesday we hosted the group for our annual meeting and a backstage tour of Hudson Yards hosted by Related Companies' Chief Digital Officer, Scott Evans.

On Wednesday Propel by MIPIM NYC made its greatly anticipated debut at the Javits Center, with 60+ speakers across 40+ conference sessions sharing exclusive insights about the U.S. real estate and PropTech markets.

Throughout the week we hosted events across town covering deal-making, networking, building tours, panels, education sessions, startup pitches, and investor gatherings.

It felt great to reconnect with old friends and make new connections. We're already looking forward to next year's events and hope to see you there!
