The body represents and assists businesses who are active in the UK’s proptech sector, promoting engagement between tech companies and the real estate industry.

“As a founding member of the UK Proptech Association, I am excited to be taking a seat on the organisation’s board of directors alongside other digital pioneers in the sector and getting down to work to support our burgeoning sector,” said Lloyd. “The time is now for the property industry to coalesce around a trade body that is focused on how technology will play a pivotal role in how properties are transacted across both residential and commercial markets.”

“It is undeniable that proptech is moving from buzzword to a widespread movement for change. As such, it is important that the growth and development of proptech firms is supported by a dedicated body that can champion the practical benefits to conveyancers, commercial property lawyers, estate agents, developers, financial professionals, planners, homebuyers and investors.”
