Strategy and solutions for identifying opportunities, improving operations and driving profitability  

Data and analytics promises to be the biggest game-changer in the world of real estate.

That’s why forward-thinking executives at real estate companies are pushing their firms to find ways to unlock and analyse transaction, valuation, asset management, listing, and other data. However, to create genuine value from data, organisations need a clear strategy, they need a capable team and they need the right partners and technologies.

If you want to understand how to realise the benefits of data & analytics across areas such as Investment & Development, Design & Construction and Operations & Experience, then you can get all the answers you need at the Data & Analytics in Real Estate Summit.

We’ve assembled an all-star list of speakers representing the largest and most progressive owners, investors and managers of real estate to help you become a data driven organisation.

Connect with 200+ digital and analytics executives as they share experiences of using analytics tools and strategies. Take advantage of our interactive roundtable formats that are great for candid conversations and networking with like-minded people.

    By Dr Alistair Rew Head of Alpha Strategies, AMP Capital

    Building ‘Moneyball’ prediction models and data insights for real world solutions

    By Joanna Marsh General Manager, Innovation & Strategic Projects, Investa Office Management Pty Ltd

    The time when brokers could lean on gut feelings to get the best deal is gone. Today, if you’re not paying attention to the numbers, you’re losing money. We consider the evolution of valuation approaches from a focus largely on leverages advances in AI and machine learning prediction to one now balanced by needs for interpretability and explainability. 

  • 09:50 - 10:30

    Panel discussion: Data insight enablers - Enabling the data science team to focus on value generation

    Data is not only abstract but has no direct or tangible value, only potential value. The aim of any data strategy should be focused on maximising the potential value of data and then releasing and realising this value.  This requires a multi-discipline team of people who deeply connect with and understand the role of data and who enable that data to flow where it needs to.
