The real estate world is changing rapidly and this is being reflected in the needs of the sector. The secret is not to go with the flow, but to dare to think outside the box. Only then will you arrive at innovative solutions that help you anticipate these ever-changing needs.
By taking Dare to Discover as our theme, we challenge you to step out of your comfort zone at this year’s Provada! Join us as we discover new technologies, emerging markets and new forms of financing, and explore their significance for the future of real estate.
At Provada we will be zooming in on three real estate trends
Data is the driving force behind the ongoing development of the real estate sector, and by deploying new technologies we can put this data to far more effective use. This leads to better insights, substantiated in real time with hard facts. During the panel debate ‘What’s the future for real estate valuations?’, Roderick Smorenburg will discuss how data is being utilised by valuers.
The real estate sector offers plenty of opportunities to gain an advantage. But are you fully aware of promising markets and chances that are often overlooked? Jeroen Hermus will highlight one of these emerging markets during the item ‘Investing in healthcare real estate’.
New Financing Opportunities
While large-scale financing continues to predominate, we are also seeing new, rapidly emerging trends such as micro-finance. This trend opens up opportunities for smaller real estate projects that can often go unnoticed. Robert-Jan Peters gives us the lowdown on this alternative form of financing at the Fakton Financing Debate.

What’s the future for real estate valuations?
Wednesday 6 June| 13:00 -14:00
The role of the valuer is undergoing a transformation. This has everything to do with the changing expectations of the customer and a host of technological developments. Different trends are following each other in quick succession: Blockchain, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence to name but three. During this panel debate, Roderick Smorenburg (Senior Director of Valuation & Advisory) will discuss the changing profession of the valuer and the technologies that contribute to this evolution.
Healthcare real estate may be a relatively new market, but increasing numbers of investors are already seeing it as an attractive investment product. In 2017, for example, a record volume of €630 million was invested in this new sector. Jeroen Hermus (Director of Healthcare) invites us to join him on an exploration of the further development of healthcare real estate and the opportunities offered by this market.
