NPL Europe

Johnny Horgan announced as speaker at NPL Europe

Managing Director of BidX1 Europe, Johnny Horgan, has been announced as the main speaker at the Online Platforms session taking place at SmithNovak's NPL Europe conference in London on 5th-6th March.

The BidX1 team will also include Colin Gaynor, Director of Southern & Central Europe; Daniela Marchesano, Head of Operations & Delivery at BidX1 Spain; and Javier de Pablo, Head of Property at BidX1 Spain. 

The Online Platforms session, which opens at 11am on 5th March, will cover both loan portfolio and real estate trading, with a focus on the challenge that online platforms pose to traditional transaction processes.

It’s likely that Horgan’s presentation, as well as the subsequent panel discussion, will examine how these platforms manage due diligence, pricing and valuations in comparison with traditional channels, as well as their potential for increased efficiency, whether through cost/time savings or improved user-experience.

The evolution of such platforms, both in terms of transaction volumes and technological development, will also be a focus.

The panel discussion that follows will feature Celestine Amore, CEO of IlliquidX; Marco Pagani, CEO & Founder of Wizkey; Miguel Arimont, CEO of LEM Market; and Francesco Uggenti, Head of Business Development at BlinkS.

Horgan, who joined BidX1 in 2019 to oversee the expansion of the PropTech platform into new European markets, said:

“I’m delighted to be speaking at NPL Europe, and at this session in particular. BidX1 are the market-leaders in the digitisation of property transactions, with operations in four European markets, so we’re very much at home in any debate on digital platforms. 

There is a very strong line-up for the panel discussion – we can expect some interesting and robust debates. NPL Europe is an important date in the calendar for companies operating in this market and I’m looking forward to meeting other delegates over the two days.”
