RICS Summit Series Americas

Livable Cities of the Future

The Summit Series Americas brings together thought leaders from across the region sharing their knowledge about current issues in the industry.

This year, the Summit Series will consider what makes a city liveable. As urban populations continue to grow, cities require affordable housing and robust infrastructure to ease movement of people, energy and goods. How will recent advances in construction technology impact decision-making? Will values-based decision-making lead to environmental and social gains or increased resiliency in the face of extreme weather?

Each region has unique challenges and is developing solutions to tackle them. We’ll have global and local thought leaders on hand to discuss these opportunities from various perspectives.


Key Themes to be Discussed in 2020

The impact of technology on the built environment

The built environment sector is benefiting by leaps and bounds due to the integration of the latest technology.

Livable Cities

Livability has emerged as an important concept in the field of planning. Increasingly, policy and community planning efforts at all levels of governance use the term to describe long range goals.

Evolution of the Workplace

It is happening right now and is going to transform how humans work and interact at the workplace and the skills we require to do our jobs.
