Repairing disconnect between humans and the built world
For too long the property industry has operated as a product industry. But change is here, and it’s happening rapidly. Are we beginning to repair the disconnect between humans and the built world? What does the future of the industry look like? And what role does technology play?

Tech-Enabled Real Estate - The promises and pitfalls of PropTech
The adoption of technology in Real Estate is now mainstream. But true transformation is painful. It brings leadership challenges and - in some cases - whole-of-company repositioning. At BWT India, our keynote panel discuss the transition to 'tech-enabled Real Estate'.

Leading Change - An agile mindset
The willingness to adapt to change is needed to survive, but being agile enough to adopt technology at scale is needed to thrive. Sometimes that means starting small. At BWT India Nirupa Shankar shares her experiences of leading change.

Industrialized construction - A glimpse into the future
The construction industry needs something beyond incremental change, something that will truly disrupt the sector, increase the value of other innovations, and tackle its challenges. At BWT India KP Reddy examines one compelling answer: industrialized construction technology with off-site manufacturing as the cornerstone.
KP Reddy, Founder, Shadow Ventures
Connected Construction - How to enhance productivity through ConTech innovations
The construction industry still lags behind as one of the least digitised sectors, however, this is starting to change. Our discussion group assesses how to adapt quicker to counter efficiency and productivity challenges and keep up in the race for innovation.
Praveen Tomy, APAC Leader, Autodesk Construction Cloud
Landlords on Tech - Future Proofing properties; added value vs cost savings
In India, PropTech had a few early-adopters but many more with a 'watching brief'. So where are we now with evidence of value and cost savings? At BWT India, landlords discuss what's driving - and inhibiting - technology adoption.

Space as a Service - What do occupiers really want?
Businesses don’t want offices per se. They want successful employees! Space-as-a-Service is about helping to maximise that success. At BWT India, enterprise occupiers, flex operators and tech companies get to the bottom of what is really in demand - and the role technology can play.
