Each event will be unique, being focused on digital recordings rather than to a physical audience and all recordings will utilise the latest production technology in a green screen studio in Budapest, Property Forum said.

All recorded content, from around the world will be gathered together and promoted through the local partners and also syndicated through Unissu and a host of other exclusive partnerships which meant that this is an opportunity for all speakers who want to grow their profile globally.

Networking events will also be announced throughout the event week across all locations to ensure the best in-person networking too.

Property Forum is committed to bringing together technology leaders and real estate professionals. Technology has been the key topic of our forums for years now and Connect will provide a brand new platform to spread the word on the importance of innovation in our industry. We look forward to choosing the best speakers together with the Unissu team from the rapidly emerging CEE proptech scene and to helping them connect them with a global audience,

Csanád Csűrös, CEO & Founder of Property Forum, said.
