Urbano Communities

Urbano Tech

Technology as a sector is fast-moving and every business is now impacted by technological revolutions in the way their services and their sectors are created and delivered.

Across Urbano’s communities are interested in and using the latest innovations to enhance how their client and themselves operate. From HRTech to FinTech, EdTech to PropTech, each sector with our communities is looking to understand how hardware and software, apps and systems can help them work leaner.

Our Urbano Tech Community includes companies who develop mobile applications, digital platforms and projects, including websites and back-end CMS systems, to those who  offer specialist and support services in IT, hosting, cloud and workplace systems.

Many Tech Community company members focus on hardware and software solutions and applications in VR, AR, animation, modelling, and CAD. Many of our Urbano Tech Community members offer services and products in construction and the built environment (Build) , especially in BIM (Building Information Modelling), an area we have long supported as we believe it offers specialist, smaller providers opportunities to offer innovative solutions to larger companies in the sector. This has now extended into Smart Cities, workplace design, wellbeing/wellbuilding, laser surveying, 3D modelling, project management and bespoke software development.

Urbano is especially useful for new tech start-ups who need support as they grow, including recruitment and HR advice (People), funding and investment (Finance), branding and marketing (Media) and a chance to benefit from the business experiences of others at our events.

BIOPHILIA, ARCHITECTURE, AND THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT SPEAKER EVENT

THURSDAY MAY 27TH - 10.30AM

This event is focused on biophilia, a conception of how the built environment and architectural design may be used for the benefit of all living things, and to answer the pressing need for sustainable and comfortable urban lifestyles.

Robert is design/project lead on The Spine, the new northern home for the Royal College of Physicians in Liverpool, which aims to be one of the healthiest workplace environments in the world when it opens its doors in May 2021. Biophilia is at the heart of AHR's approach to the design of The Spine and the building has been designed adhering to WELL Standard principles. Robert will be dsicussing how biophilia and other innvovations around workplace wellness and design have informed The Spine's design and construction.

OPEN NETWORKING ROUND TABLE

JUNE 16th - 10.30AM

Since 2002, we have organised hosted around 35,000 people at over 1,000 events. Our approach follows a clear principle, Urbano's Networking Pathway: Contacts, Connections, Relationships, Opportunities. Put simply, the more contacts you make, the more opportunities you will develop, but the key element is 'Relationships'.

Most opportunities come attached to a person and these are revealed through conversation. Hosted by Mark Herring's Connector-in-Chief, these online events are a mix of company and personal introductions, followed by interactive discussions designed to uncover areas where attendees can collaborate and find future business opportunities. After the event, Urbano members can access the full profiles and contact details of attendees through their Urbano Dashboards.
