Nicolas Ferrary, CEO, Airbnb France - one of the success stories of the sharing economy for renting apartments - will be speaking as part of the MIPIM conference programme. He will challenge MIPIM participants to reflect on the impact of the sharing economy on traditional ownership models.

Organised in partnership with Allianz Real Estate, this session, ‘Towards the end of ownership?’ will be held on Tuesday 10 March at 5pm. It will be part of MIPIM’s central ‘digital revolution’ theme in 2015.

In addition, MIPIM today announces the winners of the MIPIM Open Stage, a crowdsourcing operation calling on companies to suggest a conference panel subject related to the impact of big and open data on the property industry.

The winners are CompStak and Fundrise, often compared to Wikipedia and Kickstarter. US leaders in their field, the two companies jointly proposed a conference on "The power of the crowd - a game changer in commercial real estate.” Fundrise is a real estate crowdfunding and investment platform, while CompStak provides US property professionals with a database compiled from information collected from hundreds of brokers. Their conference will take place on Thursday 12 March at 4pm.

This first crowdsourcing conference initiative at MIPIM has been a real success with 15 subject proposals and more than 12,000 votes. Alongside the CompStak/Fundrise proposal, three other entries were deemed to be outstanding and an additional session has been allocated in the conference programme to discuss the impact of new technology on the real estate industry.

This new panel entitled ‘The impact of big and open data on the property industry’, taking place Friday 13 March at 11am, will involve input from Canadian, US and Belgian companies. The Canadian company Merchlar develop mobile applications for visualizing data using interactive technologies, the American company Augmentedpixels.com provide augmented reality solutions for the property sector and the Belgian company MCS address the specific needs of asset management using innovative software.
