So let me start with a short introduction, I’m Sjoerd and I’m part of the program and production team for RecoTech. Events are what I do and events are what I do best. I have been doing this for over 20 years and I do this with a passion.
“Slush can be happy to have us open the week on Wednesday the 20th of November and set up the tone for the hottest business week of the year in Finland”
When we first started planning RecoTech 2019 we started thinking what can be done different and what can be done even better than last time. Last years reactions where overwhelming and we received some great reviews (if you don’t believe me go and have a read what Duke Long had to say about it here)
What we have come up with puts us on track(dare I say it) to become one of the best PropTech events… in the world! Not only are we going to be in a unique venue that is soon going to be the hottest venue in town. We have gathered some of the worlds greatest speakers and we are already working together with some amazing partners who will blow you away with what they have planned. The New Nordics will show once again why they are here and why they are here to stay!
Here is a sneak peek at what we have in store:
35+ Keynotes – These are not just ordinary speakers you can see at every real estate event around the world. We have managed to gather some unique keynotes who will collectively blow you away. Some of my personal favourites who I can’t wait to meet in person are: Harley Courts(Nooklyn), Christine McDannel (kndrd.io), Dror Poleg (Rethinking.RE), Annie Cosgrove (WeWork), Tal Friedman (Foldstruct), Roelof Opperman (Fifth Wall) and David Malott (AI SpaceFactory). But this is just the tip of the ice berg. Keep an eye out on our speaker page and follow us on Social Media for more!
2 Stages with the most badass hosts you can imagine – Our Garage Stage(yes we name stages just like festivals do) will be hosted by none other than Duke Long, for those of you in the industry, if you haven’t been living under a rock you’ve heard of him. Duke loved RecoTech last year so much he decided to come back to Helsinki and he is more pissed than ever! The Factory stage will be hosted by one of the most influential people in tech globally. We are super excited Mike Butcher, editor-at-large at Techcrunch will be joining us this year and he’s ready to bring the fire to the slush!
On top of all this we will have a workshop hosted by Nikki Greenberg from Women in PropTech, fireside chats and roundtables about digitalisation, leadership and future living, a speed dating session hosted by Global PropTech for real estate companies and startups, a dedicated track for jobseekers, Food trucks with delicious street food (two meals are included in the ticket), a smoothy bar, loads of live demos by our partners, hands on experiences to get up close and personal with the latest in robotics, ar & vr, matchmaking powered by Brella and all of this in one of the most amazing venue you have ever seen(no really, everyone I have seen entering this place says: “holysh*t this place is epic”!
