Technology continues to be a catalyst for change in all areas of business and industry and the real estate market is no exception. Technology companies play an increasingly important role in the real estate chain, but due to their different position in the total market chain, they do not overlap with other HPP communities. Therefore HPP preferred to establish a separate platform for this group of companies in the real estate industry. As the Platforms HPP-IREIN, HPP-REDA and the other Platforms have many common interests HPP intend to organise meetings on a regular base joint between the existing HPP Platforms and the new HPP-TECH platform.
HPP has taken the initiative to establish a network for technology companies under the name of HPP Technology Companies for the Real Estate Sector, or HPP-TECH. With this network HPP aims to create a bigger audience for foreign and local technology companies in the Netherlands. This HPP network enables these valued market players to be heard and equally provides a means by which they can be approached.
The objectives of HPP-TECH are:
- To enrich the knowledge about emerging technology within HPP community
- To stimulate innovation and adoption of technology in the real estate sector;
- Establish a network of ‘trusted’ participants from the Tech industry;
- To actively engage HPP-TECH members with senior leaders of the other HPP communities;
- Further development of HPP-TECH real estate professionals.
The creation of a platform for joint action within the structure of the HPP will ensure increased interaction with foreign and Dutch technology companies and other HPP community members. The exchange of relevant expertise will transform HPP-TECH, as a platform of the HPP Community into a unique knowledge network that can act as a discussion partner for other parties in the real estate sector.
