VIRPA D seminar

New business and services for the real estate sector

13.11.2019 / Espoo, Finland

Real estate business is going through a change: buildings and facilities are turning into service providers’ distribution platforms, from which users can select the services that are relevant to them.

The Digital User Services in Real Estate Business (Virpa-D) project is a part of the Virpa project entity, which focuses on the ongoing development projects within the real estate business, and on development projects that connect various sectors closely connected to the field.

In this seminar we will dig deeper into development projects within the real estate business. We will reveal the results of our modern way of working in these ecosystems, in which we have combined the expertise of various players into an entity that develops the entire sector.

Join the seminar and discover what new services and solutions have been developed for the real estate and premises sector!
