The real estate and construction industry and growth companies to meet at the ReCoTech event arranged for the first time.

YIT will participate in the ReCoTech event, which will be arranged on November 30 for the first time.

ReCoTech, a parallel event to Slush, provides a venue where the real estate and construction industry (RECO) can look for new ideas and partnerships by bringing together startups and the leading players in the built environment.

“The quickly developing market environment, urbanisation and digitalisation together offer construction and real estate companies the chance to reform their operating methods. We want to be involved in developing construction and urban development together with our existing but also new inventive partners,” says Timo Räikkönen, Development Director at YIT.

ReCoTech’s programme connected with the built environment and new innovations includes a brief breakfast seminar, SpeedMeet quick meetings, speeches on the industry’s future visions, and workshops.

At the quick meetings, the representatives of growth companies have the chance to present their operations to companies and discuss possible cooperation opportunities with them. Start-ups can book meeting times with the companies they want on ReCoTech’s website.

The event will be arranged at Restaurant Vaunu close to the Messukeskus expo and convention centre and in the auditorium of the State Provincial Office.
ReCoTech is arranged by the Finnish Association of Building Owners and Construction Clients, Green Building Council Finland, HESA-SAFA and Newsec Oy.
