In the categories Value Chains, Future Proof Office Space, Re:Create Retail and New Concepts for Urban Living, hosted by big names such as Drees & Sommer and Bosch, the finalists pitched their innovative ideas, products, and services in front of an international jury of experts.

My personal highlight was a fireside chat with Planradar’s CEO Sander van de Rijdt. Planradar was a finalist & 3rd place winner of the 1st PropTech Innovation Award in 2017. In the meantime, they have become the industry standard in digital documentation & communication for construction & real estate projects with over 12.000 clients in 54 countries. and show how this event has grown over the years.
