The event consisted of two panels and was moderated by David Moos, co-founding Principal of Coscia Moos Architecture and Co-Chair of the ULI Philadelphia Technology and Competitiveness Council.

The first panel discussed how technology impacts the way that we interact with real estate and featured Ryan Halpin, Project Manager for Whiting Turner; Alec LeFort, Vice President of Business Development for View the Space; and Stacey Mosley, Founder and CEO of FixList.

The second panel discussed the roles that real estate, private developers, and the city will play in helping Philadelphia grow into an East Coast tech hub and featured Sara Merriman, Director of Business Development & Strategic Partnerships for Brandywine Realty Trust; Pete Cramer, Director of Development for Wexford Science + Technology; and Ellen Hwang, Program Manager of Innovation Management for the City of Philadelphia’s Office of Innovation and Technology.

The program was sold out and revealed the different technologies and developments influencing Philadelphia’s real estate market.
