Looking back on 2018...
In 2018 we toured seven cities in North and Latin America, reaching over 700 industry professionals to discuss resilience, infrastructure, PropTech and preparing for the cities of the future.
We heard politicians Daniel Zarrilli, former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine and Toronto Mayor John Tory discuss infrastructure projects in their cities and how they’re preparing their cities for climate change and extreme weather.
We heard from thought leaders from PropTech who explained how harnessing data will change the built environment. The National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) explained the economic and social value of mitigating against weather-related disasters. Valuation experts explained the value of knowledge-sharing at our summits to keep up with market developments and mitigate against risk. Professionals who build infrastructure explained how International Construction Measurement Standards (ICMS) is a game-changer for the construction industry.
The Summit Series reached over 83,000 people online with almost 12,000 active engagements from our online community ensuring the conversation continued long after the last panel.
Hosting the RICS Summit Series Americas 2018 in seven cities enabled us to tackle global issues on a local scale: showcasing examples of how communities are addressing the issues that matter to the industry.
In 2019, we will build on the momentum created in 2018. We’ll continue to discuss the future of cities from infrastructure to investment risk, construction to facility management. We’ll draw regional thought leaders to speak about market specific issues in Miami, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Mexico City and São Paulo. We’ve only just begun...
