DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION in Corporate Real Estate and Facilities – What Does it Mean?
Corporate Real Estate and Facilities are ripe for digital transformation. As more organizations are coming to the realization that ‘data-driven’ is a foundational strategy for business success, they have embarked on comprehensive, enterprise-wide programs to digitize their institutions. In this Age of Acceleration, the factors impacting digitization have been ‘increasing at an increasing rate’. The NextGen workplace, smart buildings and enterprise information management systems are all being transformed by a host of new technologies including AI, machine learning, automation, immersive media, robotics, blockchain and others. In this comprehensive session, our most innovative thought leaders will weigh in on Digital Transformation, the necessary components for success, and what it means to our industry.

Employee & Visitor EXPERIENCE PLATFORMS – Assessing the Landscape
About 5-6 years ago we began hearing about a new idea; letting building occupants take more digital control of the building. Adjusting the temperature, reserving facilities and reporting maintenance issues were some of the early indications that people liked the idea of interacting with the building via their phone. Fast forward to 2018 and it now seems that every building needs an “app” and the list of functions grows daily. Opening the parking gate, moving through security, calling an elevator, ordering a latte, scheduling a yoga class, adjusting the temperature and dimming the lights are just some of the features emerging. This complex and fast-moving phenomenon will be addressed by both real estate executives and solution providers.

Creating a 21st Century EXPERIENCE for Employees & Visitors - What Does That Mean?
The conversation regarding employee/visitor experience has been escalating at breakneck speed. To retain skilled employees, compete for new talent, increase knowledge worker productivity and contribute to the overall well-being of employees and visitors, corporate real estate has been challenged to create richer and more meaningful employee/visitor experiences. This ‘race to experience’ has spawned research and innovation in a number of areas, from physical design to other innovative workplace features. In this informative session, we’ll look at a range of digital amenities, and technology strategies required to connect both employees and visitors to a more engaging, data-driven experience.

Managing Corporate Real Estate Information – Approaches to the NextGen DATA ARCHITECTURE
The various data sets used to operate a Corporate Real Estate portfolio create an extremely complex ecosystem. Advances in data and analytics are requiring Corporate Real Estate executives to re-evaluate their traditional data strategies. For decades, IWMS systems were front and center, but are now being challenged because of their limited scope, older technology stack and high cost. Newly developed modern platforms that offer more flexibility and integration options are gaining traction in the marketplace and traditional data warehouses are now being challenged by data lakes and other emerging data management strategies. This session presents experts in CRE data models and architecture to discuss and debate the various options.

REAL ESTATE STRATEGIES in a Changing World – What Does a Portfolio Look Like in 2023?
Coworking, densification, the war for talent, aging millennials, 5G, occupant experience, artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles, IoT, flying cars, self-healing buildings, new energy sources, advanced visual communication systems…the list goes on and on. Today’s Corporate Real Estate and Facility executives are facing new and diverse challenges, and the speed of change, influenced by rapidly advancing technology, will only accelerate. They are forced to make decisions today, despite all this uncertainty. The risk of making the wrong technology decision increases daily and looms large for those working on sizable projects. In this interactive session, we’ll explore what a real estate portfolio might look like five years from now.

SMART CONNECTED AND IoT CENTRIC BUILDINGS – Industry Adoption Gaining Momentum
Just a few years ago, there were only a handful of Corporate Real Estate and Facility executives who were thinking about smart, connected and intelligent buildings, campuses and portfolios. Fast forward to 2018 and we see that corporate real estate, as a sector, has taken the conversation much more seriously, hence the growing number of legitimate smart building projects. Base-building networks, building operating systems, smart edge devices, wireless communications, sensor/sensor-less data points, analytics, and machine learning are now active components of the new benchmark for buildings. This valuable session will address the smart building resources necessary to develop forward-thinking workplace strategies and present some of the most current and compelling smart building case studies.

PRIVACY – A New Issue for the Corporate Real Estate and Facility Executive
As we connect and sensor buildings, more tightly integrate cloud-based information systems, and collect more granular data on building occupants, the potential for privacy infringement increases and more stringent data protection protocols must be implemented. The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) coming from Europe are impacting the U.S. as well, forcing facility managers to implement privacy protocols that might limit the usage of facial recognition and video analytics from surveillance cameras, voice data from microphones and personal information gathered from sensors, as well as a growing number of IoT devices. Data governance and privacy concerns in modern connected workspaces are some of the topics to be discussed.

11:00 am - 11:45 am

SPACE AS A SERVICE – Understanding its Role in a Comprehensive Real Estate Portfolio Strategy
Space as a Service is not a new concept. Shared spaces, working from home and mobile workers have been around since the late 1980s. Today, the challenge of forecasting headcount forces corporations to adopt more flexible workplace strategies. Dynamic space design and coworking are now being proactively integrated into the corporate real estate portfolio. While some companies send workers to third-party coworking locations, others are creating their own coworking spaces to drive innovation, giving them more control over the corporate culture, protect intellectual property and security protocols. New corporate real estate space strategies that address space utilization in light of the emergence and growth of a ‘liquid’ and ‘augmented’ workforce will be discussed in this important session.

The Real Estate Cyber Consortium (RECC) – Leading the Way on CYBERSECURITY for Buildings
The Internet of Things (IoT) is impacting everything from elevators to automobiles, and reliance on technology in all aspects of our lives is increasing. As our buildings become more connected, affecting systems such as lighting, HVAC, security, conveyances and a vast array of wired and wireless sensors, the potential for cyber threats increases exponentially. Turning off lights, opening doors, disabling heating systems and infiltrating confidential video conferencing sessions are just a few of the potential risks to buildings and their occupants. Over the last five years, a devoted group of organizations has been working on creating the Real Estate Cyber Consortium (RECC) to better serve the built industry. This instructive session will provide an overview of the RECC; goals, objectives and future plans.

REtech, CREtech, PROPtech Investments Expand - Navigating Hype vs. Reality
Since 2009, there has been an extraordinary wave of new investments in companies selling some form of technology and/or automation to the Commercial and Corporate Real Estate industry. With investment ranging between 15 and 20 billion dollars, this expansion has resulted in a Proptech industry of more than 3,000 companies. This year alone we have seen another two billion in investment capital added to the Proptech pipeline. While massive investment will inevitably result in some stunning innovation, it has also led to a large-scale sense of confusion. How to identify, vet, test, implement, support and integrate these new solutions into an existing Corporate Real Estate automation strategy is a formidable task and will be the focus of this timely session.

Smart Buildings to Smart Cities – The Next Evolution of the SMART CORPORATE CAMPUS
Rising real estate costs, long commutes, traffic congestion and the global war for talent are forcing corporations to rethink what they offer employees and visitors, to provide a seamless and beneficial experience. In recent years, we have seen the inclusion of dining options, housing services, retail, hospitality, entertainment, education, fitness and health-related facilities within the corporate campus. This results in new and innovative amenities, and also drives new technologies that ultimately will be required to connect and digitally manage all services, such as energy, telecommunications, supply chain logistics, portfolio optimization and security. The industry’s most progressive thought leaders will present their pioneering campus designs that are now beginning to resemble urban neighborhoods.
