A May 22 event explores how tech and new approaches are changing relocation.

The Future of Moving features a panel discussion with tech community leaders working in the space. The move could be an individual getting a new house or a business heading to a new office.

Organizer Jake Metzger, who is CEO of D.C. startup HousePouch, said that there’s a group of startups in D.C. creating platforms to replace services in areas like like finding homes, roommates, moving your things, furnishing your home and remodeling among others. The startups could benefit from knowing each other, especially as bigger companies like Nestle and Gerber planning to move here.

“The industry is old school, needs innovation and there are a number of related startups that would benefit from collaborating since there are so many different services,” Metzger said.

Panelists include:

  • Eric Delgado, Executive Vice President of Zippy Shell, who oversees relocation for businesses and corporations.
  • Jake Metzger, cofounder and CEO of home decor search engine HousePouch.
  • Shahier Rahman, partnerships specialist at General Assembly DC.
  • Keri Shull, of residential real estate firm The Keri Shull Team.
  • Alex Taylor, Senior Business Development Manager, Arlington Economic Development.
