Dynamic Disruption
Technology, Real Estate and a Changing Society

The scope and speed of change around digitization, automation and artificial intelligence have revolutionized the way we live and work. Even the most current business and investment strategies are now dangerously out of date.

Technology, real estate and a changing society

During this exclusive dinner, author, MIT Scientist, and noted futurist, Dr. Andrew McAfee will discuss the digital-powered shift our society is undergoing, and what massive implications these disruptive forces have in store for real estate investors.
