Twelve tech companies gathered for the UrbanLab Demo Day at The Middle House hotel on 17th December.
In December, The Middle House in Shanghai hosted an UrbanLab Demo Day, bringing together 12 tech companies as part of Mainland China's first corporate property technology accelerator. UrbanLab was established last year as a collaboration between Swire Properties, JLL and Ping An Urban Tech, to foster technological innovation in China's real estate industry.

The UrbanLab Demo Day provided an opportunity for the 12 tech companies selected to participate in the programme to give updates on their progress and present the results of their proof-of-concept trials with their assigned partner companies. One of the selected tech companies was GIGA, which has partnered with Swire Properties to create an environmental leaderboard for tenants at the company's Shanghai mixed-use development, HKRI Taikoo Hui. This data platform engages tenants by communicating key environmental metrics, for example real-time air quality data, in an easily understandable way and aligns closely with Swire Properties' SD2030 strategy.
