Live. Work. Connect. WiredScore explores European real estate’s digital future


11 / 29 / 2021


November 2021, Europe awakened to a momentous event: The (first ever) WiredScore Future Forum…

A thought leadership event bringing industry-leading insight from innovation trailblazers and technology experts from across Europe, The WiredScore Future Forum delved into the future of the real estate landscape as we exhibit digital dependence like never before.

The event got off to a flying start with an energetic conversation between WiredScore CEO Arie Barendrecht and the inventor of the World Wide Web, speaking passionately about the power of connectivity and its ability to unite a global audience. Aptly, the WiredScore Future Forum was itself a virtual event, made possible only by internet connectivity.

Connectivity matters, and it matters to everyone. Our homes, our offices, even the train we commute on – now, every people-centric space needs to be able to facilitate the lifeblood of modern society: great digital connectivity.

But the path to a better-connected future isn’t as simple as installing a few new Wi-Fi routers. There’s much more to it than that. There are social, economic and infrastructural implications to consider, as well as how we interpret the data we collect from the real estate we interact with; not to mention the ways in which we need to adapt to the working world’s new need for hybrid. And that’s exactly what The WiredScore Future Forum discussed.

The forum really got to the crux of connectivity in the built environment, and how we can build better for a future that’s ready for connectivity. How? By building with the needs of the users at the heart of any project.
