To an external observer, the commercial real estate industry might appear slow moving and conservative. Many industries have experienced technological disruption since the millennium, however software and technology have not started ‘eating the world’ of real estate until relatively recently.

This report is a collaboration between Nuveen and MIPIM. It includes our thoughts on the rise of digital disruption and innovation in the commercial real estate industry, and discusses whether real estate is ready to embrace innovation as the industry evolves. We also highlight our favourite ‘MIPIM talk’ topics from this year’s conference. The ‘Mapping World Urbanity’ theme placed great emphasis on technology and innovation, sparking a number of insightful conversations,  demonstrating that technology is front of mind for those in the industry.
