Despite the majority being tech dynamos, most still value face-to-face meetings as the ideal way of getting deals done. Having a human element to tech still appears to be an important theme for those starting along the path towards innovation and easing their way into adoption.

We saw evidence of this in 2018; JLL developed an AI bot for residential lettings, Knight Frank trialled Proda AI software, Leverton signed up Derwent London and Hammerson started to develop AI software with Cortexica to improve security and safety in public spaces.
