RICS and MetaProp NYC have joined forces to identify and address the growing global opportunities and challenges posed by real estate technology (RETech) and property technology (PropTech).


MetaProp NYC is one of the world’s leading real estate technology nexuses and accelerators, and RICS is a global professional body working across land, real estate and construction.

The two organizations will work together to provide greater cross-border access for their respective communities and, for the first time, to unite RETech and PropTech in support of professionals, the market and the public.

We are thrilled to welcome RICS as our first internationally based real estate industry partner. Our partnership will provide RICS with a platform to further develop professionalism in the sector within North American, while allowing MetaProp NYC’s best technologies new access to RICS accredited professionals in key markets outside of the United States. We’re also working together on education initiatives for the MetaProp NYC real estate technology accelerator, new international property technology events and on a variety of tech-related research publications.

RICS’ ground-breaking “Our Changing World” report identified data and technology as a key area for action in response to emerging social, economic and business environments. The report recommends that RICS work with others to understand the implications, risks and opportunities that technology will have on the sector and to equip property professionals for these changes, from small enterprises to large multinationals.
