Opening Session | The Corporate Real Estate Paradigm Shift: Navigating the Most Significant Changes in Modern History
Digital transformation was well under way with advanced communications redefining daily life, including work. When the pandemic hit, it accelerated new models for working, learning, shopping and more. Even though pre-pandemic life is returning, the lessons learned are here to stay. Long commutes, wasted time, climate action and other factors are forcing organizations to rethink how they use and operate space. How much (flexible) real estate is actually needed? How does technology support the experience? Improved digital collaboration, immersive space and advances in operational technology are changing the game. Realcomm's world-class co-chairs address these big issues in our opening segment.

Power over Ethernet and Digital Electricity: Why Is No One Talking About LOW VOLTAGE BUILDINGS?
Digital electricity promises safe transmission of electricity (at high levels or long distances) using data cables to digitally control high-tech electronic devices. It takes Power over Ethernet (PoE) to an entirely new level. Although AC is currently the standard, several PoE-powered projects have proven that low voltage DC systems are significantly less expensive and provide more flexibility. Despite these benefits - and the current push for reducing carbon emissions in buildings - there is very little discussion on low voltage buildings. This session examines the possibilities of delivering PoE and highlights the best performing case studies.

ChinaTech and the Implications for the Built Environment
It is abundantly clear that the United States and China are moving in the direction of an extraordinary competitive battle for technology dominance in the 21st century. The tech targets range from AI, defense and biotech to next generation telecommunication platforms, i.e. 5G and beyond. Given that the United States has been the global leader in technology for the better part of the last century and has realized the resulting benefits, the stakes could not be higher. The built environment, including critical infrastructure, data centers, corporate campuses, warehouses, offices, retail, industrial, manufacturing and more, will all be part of this next generation smart building ecosystem. In this session, Warren Wilson, Director for Economy for the newly formed Special Competitive Studies Project (SCSP) - which Dr. Eric Schmidt (Google’s former chairman) founded and chairs - shares SCSP's vision to strengthen America’s long-term competitiveness for a future where emerging technologies reshape our national security, economy and society.

The Future of Teams and Zoom: Are Online COLLABORATION PLATFORMS CRE's Friend, Foe or Both?
Since most employees have gained confidence in using virtual meeting and collaboration technologies, many question the need for physical workplaces. While virtual platforms eliminated the requirement for all-onsite employees, many proponents of physical office spaces say onsite attendance encourages collaboration and sparks creativity. Some companies have instated strict return to office policies, while others are exploring hybrid workplace options. What is the purpose of the workplace today? What is the role of online platforms? This timely session explores how physical space and online platforms best co-exist and addresses issues such as “virtual fatigue” and productivity.

ESG is Everywhere: Does Anybody Really Know What a COMPREHENSIVE STRATEGY Looks Like?
The corporate world has embraced ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) initiatives, especially since investors increasingly use ESG metrics to calibrate a company’s value, sustainability, and ultimate impact on society. Defining and setting a course to meet decarbonization, electrification, diversity, equity and inclusion requires a cohesive plan and alignment among stakeholders. To actualize ESG targets, companies must measure, monitor and manage a complex variety of inputs to evaluate and rank their ESG metrics. Several scorecards and best practices have been developed and are continually evolving. This useful session examines digital tools, data, metrics and reporting methods available and explores how to prioritize and employ them successfully.
