Executives from Facebook, Brookfield, Related–Hudson Yards and ExxonMobil to Speak on Real Estate Innovation @ Scale at the Realcomm | IBcon General Session

The Commercial and Corporate Real Estate industry is experiencing one of the biggest periods of change in history. Much of this disruption is coming from the impacts that technology, automation and innovation are having on our business. Process automation, smart buildings and new ways of using space are all changing the way we design, build, lease, operate, transact and use buildings.

It is relatively easy to experiment with a new technology in a single building where the risks and exposure are low, but much more complicated to attempt to innovate at scale. Commercial and Corporate Real Estate represent complex ecosystems. Blueprints, leases, paying rent, parking, security access, maintenance requests and performance reports all contain an inordinate amount of data and process automation. Business requirements for standardization, cybersecurity protocols and privacy issues create additional hurdles to overcome.

Realcomm | IBcon is pleased to announce that Zorba Manolopoulos, Global Program Manager, Smart Campuses, Facebook Kevin Danehy, Global Head of Corporate Development, Brookfield Kenneth Finnegan, CTO, Managing Director of Technology, Related-Hudson Yards and Jared Summers, Digital Foundation Manager, ExxonMobil will be participating on a panel at the General Session to discuss Real Estate Innovation @ Scale on June 13 at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville.

These executives represent some of the most notable and recognizable companies in the world and they are all taking a very aggressive approach to transforming how they manage and use every aspect of their Real Estate operations. This panel of extraordinary professionals will present a good mix of perspectives from both the tenant and landlord side of the relationship, as well as describe their roles in the digital transformation process. As technology reaches through the center of the buildings, into tenant suites and back to the owner’s operating team, establishing future-proof strategies for Real Estate will continue to be challenging.


Facebook, which has changed the way we communicate and socialize digitally with over one billion users globally, is applying their digital prowess to their own corporate campus.




Brookfield, one of the largest Commercial Real Estate owners and operators in the world, is set to use their size to create new benchmarks and accelerate innovation in our industry.







Hudson Yards, which was constructed on 28 acres over an existing rail yard in New York City, is the nation’s largest private development and has set new standards for Innovation @ Scale.








ExxonMobil, one of the largest oil companies in the world with buildings around the globe, is applying an aggressive innovation strategy to its new Spring, TX, HQ and portfolio at large.


Meeting the challenge for changing the Real Estate industry through technology, automation and innovation takes all types of participants - small, medium and large - to start the discussion and then show the way. As the market makers step in and take the discussion to the next level, we see Real Estate Innovation @ Scale bring accelerated industry acceptance and true transformation. This exceptional panel with their various roles and perspectives will set the stage for two days of fast paced, cutting-edge, timely discussions and debates on how we all need to REcalibrate our thinking about the relationship between Technology and Real Estate.
