The Annual UK PropTech Awards are back and bigger than ever!
Each year, we celebrate professionals and companies in the PropTech ecosystem by awarding those that are driving digital transformation. Whether by demonstrating leadership within their companies, displaying the qualities needed for the industry to thrive or taking a collaborative and innovative approach to tackling industry challenges, the Awards make note of those who are making a difference.
During the pandemic, the PropTech industry has become crucial for the property industry to better understand risk, continue operations in a constantly changing environment and meet new customer demands. Amongst these issues is the increased prevalence of ESG as we become more conscious of our role in society as individuals and an industry. The use of data has never been more important in tackling environmental challenges and creating a foundation of stability during these rapid changes. Never has the industry needed to come together more than it does now.
To reflect this, not only are we introducing new awards such as ‘social impact’, ‘environmental impact’ and ‘data driven business’, but we are introducing joint awards for the first time to celebrate collaboration across the industry!
Check out our categories below and nominate TODAY…
