Wednesday, October 3 - 10:30 am to 11:15 am - Room 1

Property technology, or PropTech, is developing at a blistering pace worldwide. In this keynote presentation, James Dearsley will explain what PropTech is and why it is so successful. He will offer his vision of the technologies that will emerge and which he believes will be essential in tomorrow’s real estate ecosystem. James will also present some things he has learned from his travels on four continents and the challenges that property markets are facing. This presentation provides a solid foundation for understanding the current state and future of PropTech.

Speaker

  • James Dearsley, Partner, The Digital Marketing Bureau

2 - The data you need to know to sell property on the Internet

Wednesday, October 3 - 10:30 am to 11:15 am - Room 2

Now that over 92% of households are equipped with a computer or smartphone, digital has become a mass media that enables companies to reach their clients and prospects directly. Each month, 85% of French consumers log onto at least one digital screen, and 37% of these visit a real estate website. For this presentation, Médiamétrie presents some key figures on the real estate industry’s place within the digital ecosystem. This provides an ideal opportunity to look closely at the audience of Internet users and at how the industry and its leading brands have influenced user practices.

  • How real estate ranks in the digital consumption of Internet users
  • The profile of online home searchers
  • The most popular websites
  • The importance of applications and mobility in the digital universe.

3 - Understanding the new expectations of real estate consumers

Wednesday, October 3 - 12:00 pm to 12:45 pm - Room 1

The digital world is making consumers increasingly curious, impatient and demanding. They are in control of the relationship and are forcing companies to reinvent themselves. How can we better understand these new behaviours in our industry and meet the needs of consumers more effectively?

Speaker

  • Betsy Annen, Senior Business Development Manager Classifieds, Google

4 - Online rental management – New business models and practices

Wednesday, October 3 - 12:15 pm to 01:00 pm - Room 2

Real estate professionals, investors and startups have reached the conclusion that the five million rental housing units that are managed by their owners, on a peer-to-peer basis, represent four billion euros in potential rental management fees. Driven by increasingly complex and strict regulations and the fear of unpaid rent, lessors are turning towards new intermediaries, which may offer traditional services or disruptive solutions. The most digital, innovative and daring new players will win this new market, which is of strategic importance in terms of data and the understanding of the demand for rental properties.

The battle for the rental management market is underway, with the repackaging of service offerings, new processes, low-cost service and collaborative platforms.

Speaker

  • François Moerlen, Founder, Locagestion

5 - Human + Digital — disrupt your real estate business

Wednesday, October 3 - 01:45 pm to 02:30 pm - Room 1

With PropTech startups attempting to “revolutionise” an “ageing” industry, how can real estate professionals reinvent themselves? How can they continue to justify their fees? How can they implement a system that will make them more effective and efficient? How can they demonstrate their added value to clients and prospects and facilitate their digital transformation? Immobilier 2.0 is back again this year with some ultra-practical tips that you can apply immediately to boost your sales.

Wednesday, October 3 - 02:00 pm to 02:45 pm - Room 2

The number of online real estate auctions has increased significantly over the past few years, giving a new twist to the traditional auction, by increasing the uncertainty of bid options and accelerating purchase decisions.

21 - Big Data's contribution to understanding real estate searches

Thursday, October 4 - 10:00 am to 10:45 am - Room 1

More than nine real estate searches out of 10 begin on the Internet. French consumers express what they want, refine their home-buying plans and make their first decisions in front of a computer or smartphone screen. Although these actions are silent, they end up saying a lot when the resulting data is processed to provide useful information that gives insight into real estate search processes. This presentation provides an opportunity to share observations on how French consumers and businesses look for property online. For example:

  • The average search time
  • The relationship between the properties searched and those proposed
  • The major long-term trends observed
  • The impact of external trends.

Speaker

  • François Di Dio, Vice-president Real Estate Market, Le Bon Coin

22 - Social and semi-social housing – Different perspectives on digital innovations

Thursday, October 4 - 10:15 am to 11:00 am - Room 2

The five million social and semi-social housing units in France offer tremendous potential for digital innovations. Keeping pace with these innovations is a challenge for housing authorities, which must move quickly to deal with changes in their clientele and a broad range of new services. Although complex, this market segment holds great promise for startups. This roundtable provides an overview of current and future innovations, ranging from building facilities and lessee relationship management, to online rental management and marketing. Relations between startups and housing authorities and institutions are also dealt with.

24 - New properties – Can innovations save on-site sales offices?

Thursday, October 4 - 12:15 pm to 01:00 pm - Room 2

Now that 1.6 million French people visit a real estate website every day, the role of on-site sales offices in the new property segment has changed considerably. The consequences are obvious: the number of prospective customers who come through the door has fallen by 90% and they know exactly what they want. Given this situation, property developers are faced with several questions: 

  • Can we do without dedicated sales offices located on or near development sites?
  • How can a more effective and less expensive on-site presence be maintained?
  • How can the “customer experience” in sales offices be reinvented to provide true added value and increase customer traffic?
  • What consequences do these profound changes have on the organisation of the sales relationship?

Speaker

  • Soline Sommers, Deputy CEO, Oswald Orb

  • Predictive analyses, big data and artificial intelligence optimise customer relationships.

Thursday, October 4 - 02:15 pm to 03:00 pm - Room 2

The lighting-fast growth of Opendoor in the United States and its impressive fund-raising in 2017 were the first signs that a new business model for real estate transactions was taking shape. Since then there have been many competing initiatives, ranging from marketplaces (such as Zillow) to networks (such as Keller William).
