Technology Showcase

Lot of housing providers are currently thinking about extending or improving their digital services and embracing digital transformation. Yet few housing providers put technology at the heart of their business change programmes.

The housing sector needs to harness the power of tech like artificial intelligence, virtual reality, bots, 3D scanning, and headless user interfaces. And we need to understand the power of these technologies in helping us do business better, smarter and faster.

HACT has assembled some of the most forward thinking technologies to demonstrate how bleeding edge technology can be applied in housing both now and in the future. Join us for drinks as we hear pitches from the technology set to transform housing. There will be kit to play with, live demos and a chance to meet those behind the inventions.
