Congratulations to the winners of this year’s UK PropTech Awards!
We celebrated with over 250 people from the industry as we awarded those that are driving digital transformation, demonstrating leadership within their companies, displaying the qualities to support the industry to thrive and taking a collaborative and innovative approach to tackling industry challenges.
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.
This year we awarded companies making a social impact and environmental impact and using data to dive business decisions. The awards also recognised collaboration across the industry by the joint awards.
