Join the urban change in the making.

We all need better cities – more efficient, future-proof and safer to live in.

With two out of three people predicted to be town-dwellers by 2050, urban stakeholders need to do a lot of planning to keep up with the unprecedented rate of urbanisation. The demand for innovation in the sector is high as ever. The time for urban transformation is now. 

Urban Tech Forward is a revolutionary hybrid event that aims to radicalise urban sustainability using powerful tech solutions. Designed to rethink spaces where people live and work – through the prism of efficiency, resilience and technology – the forum brings leading PropTech innovators, investors, real estate developers, global authorities and industry’s most prominent entrepreneurs to collaborate, shift the way we build and, ultimately, to make an impact that matters.
