1 - Artificial intelligence and robots in real estate – What role will humans play?

Wednesday, October 11 - 10:30 am to 11:15 am - Room 1

Matthew Ferrara’s presentations at RENT 2015 and 2016 were among the most appreciated and we are very happy that he was able to come to Paris again.

Matthew takes a look at how artificial intelligence, algorithms and robots will help real estate professionals find new ways to grow their business that are beneficial to both sellers and buyers. He provides real-life examples of the difference between fiction and reality.

Speaker

  • Matthew Ferrara has earned a global reputation as a leading expert in real estate sales (see www.matthewferrara.com)

2 - Is short-term rental a viable option for professionals?

Wednesday, October 11 - 10:45 am to 11:30 am - Room 2

Host

  • Henry Buzy-Cazaux, Chairman of IMSI

Speakers

  • Jean-François Buet, Chairman of FNAIM
  • Daniel Hiribarren, Chairman of Poplidays
  • Philippe Raynaud, Chairman of Sogetis

22 - How companies look for office premises

Wednesday, October 11 - 11:30 am to 12:00 pm - Room 3

3 - Measuring the ROI of digital marketing tools

Wednesday, October 11 - 12:00 pm to 12:45 pm - Room 1

To optimise the use of digital marketing tools and methods the behaviour of buyers and sellers must be measured and assessed.

  • What online behaviour can we track and measure?
  • How should we interpret behavioural data?
  • How can we understand client journeys from web to store?
  • What can we learn from the MeilleursAgents study?
  • First-hand accounts from real estate agencies.

Speaker

  • Sébastien de Lafond, Chairman of MeilleursAgents

4 - The Opendoor model – will the first unicorn be a true disrupter?

Wednesday, October 11 - 12:15 pm to 01:00 pm - Room 2

Sellers can receive a firm purchase offer online within 24 hours, while buyers can visit an empty house or apartment unaccompanied as many times as they wish. These are two examples of the innovative services provided by Opendoor, the 320-million dollar start-up that invented “home shopping” and is changing the way that properties are bought and sold. The competition is responding, as may be seen in the US residential property market.

Speaker

  • Isabelle Vrilliard, Consultant at To Be Continued

Wednesday, October 11 - 02:00 pm to 02:45 pm - Room 1

6 - Inbound Marketing

Wednesday, October 11 - 02:15 pm to 03:00 pm - Room 2

New strategies and techniques are being used to reach property buyers and sellers. Instead of pushing messages out to website visitors, inbound marketing lets them make the first move by providing attractive content that specifically addresses their concerns and needs. The speakers who present this very effective marketing strategy provide examples of what some industry leaders are doing.

Speaker

  • Alexandre Cantin, Project Manager, Mediaveille

24 - Online training in regulatory compliance – the ALUR Act

7 - What can real estate agents do that algorithms can’t?

Wednesday, October 11 - 04:00 pm to 04:45 pm - Room 1

Algorithms that appraise the quality and price of apartments are profoundly changing the way that clients and real estate professionals are approaching the market. Buyers are more informed and more savvy. The appraisals they obtain from algorithms are changing their purchasing behaviour and forcing real estate agents to align their offers with the appraisals presented.

  • An overview of robots and algorithms for the real estate industry
  • How these new tools are affecting the buyer-seller relationship
  • How to prepare convincing counter-arguments.

Host

  • Fabrice Larceneux, Research Professor at Université Paris Dauphine

16 - The real cost of leads for property developers

Thursday, October 12 - 02:15 pm to 03:00 pm - Room 2

Lead cost is no longer just the cost of generating a lead using a given tool, source or channel. Although the quality of the lead source plays a decisive role in determining the cost/benefit ratio, lead processing must also be taken into account. How can leads be handled most cost-effectively? With people or technology?
