1) Blockchain, AI and Big Data has been all over the news, but how is it actually being applied to the CRE industry today?
2) How are the industry's leading dealmakers leveraging technology to source, evaluate, and ultimately complete more transactions?
3) What innovations in design are most impacting things like sustainability, space optimization, and tenant satisfaction?
4) With construction costs rising and a growing labor shortage, what innovative products and practices are being employed to deliver projects faster and under-budget without sacrificing structural or functional integrity?
5) With the current boom cycle nearing its conclusion and "good" acquisition deals becoming harder to find, how are leading property owners and managers utilizing tech to lower operating costs and still deliver returns to their investors?
3.5-acre city-owned parcel located in the Boston Marine Industrial Park (BMIP) overlooking Boston Harbor. Historically known as “Building 16,” 25 Fid Kennedy Avenue was built in 1940 by the U.S. Navy as a multi-trade heavy machine shop. The open, steel frame structure and forty-ton overhead crane capacity facilitated large-scale metal fabrication and assembly supporting the U.S. efforts in WWII. After years of neglect, the building was left vacant for decades. In 2015, Cannistraro was designated the Developer by the Boston Redevelopment Authority to revitalize the facility to its created use. Renovations preserve the legacy of the buildings industrial Art Deco architecture and utilitarian uses.

In 2018, the Boston Planning and Development Authority (BPDA) approved 12.1 million square feet ($7 billion) of new development, which is a 1.8 million increase since 2017.
It's not exactly breaking news that technology has changed the world we live in, and that it'll continue to do so. But more practically speaking, for the CRE Industry, while it may have taken longer than it did in other industries to start getting with the times, there's too much content built around what's "out there" and not nearly enough around the tangible ways tech platforms and products are helping CRE professionals of all types conduct their day to day business.
So for this year's exploration of the impact technology is having on the Boston CRE Industry, we've decided to drill into what's working now and what improvements and new possibilities are opening up for the future.
This event is less about what's possible down the road, and more geared toward providing busy CRE professionals with exposure to (and intelligence around) tech products and platforms that can help do what all of us what to do...MORE BUSINESS!
