On February 17-18 the fourth All-Russian Annual Conference “Real Estate Market Innovation” was held in Sochi. The event was attended by more than 1,300 people – representatives of Sberbank partners, including developers, real estate agency, and other market participants. The event was opened by Herman Gref, CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board of Sberbank.
“Today digitalisation is the main trend. In the next ten years it will rapidly develop and by 2025 Russia will catch up with the leaders of digital innovation – China, the US and UK. The successes of digitalisation will determine the successes of the future,” commented Herman Gref. “By the end of 2017 Sberbank will become a fully digital organisation and by then not one of our projects or products will be paper-based.”
Speakers of the conference included Deputy Minister for Construction and Utilities Infrastructure Nikita Stasishin, Deputy Head of Rosreestr Andrey Pridankin, Senior Vice President and Head of the Corporate Business Block of Sberbank Anatoly Popov, and Senior Analyst and Director of the Non-commodities Sector of Sbebank CIB, Viacheslav Romanov.
