KEYNOTE: Navigating in the Age of Acceleration – A Global Real Estate Powerhouse Weighs In
Technology is advancing at an accelerated rate. The fast pace results in not just tactical adjustments, but also strategic realignment, paradigm shifts and big changes to how we work, play, learn and more. With dramatic changes to our lifestyle comes equally significant changes to the built environment. How we design, build, lease, manage, transact and most importantly "use" space is all in a state of flux. CBRE, with its more than 80,000 employees globally, is a force in the commercial, corporate and institutional real estate market and is in a strong position to understand the technology and innovation fueled changes that will continue to impact our industry. Bob Sulentic, President and CEO of CBRE will share his views on Digital Transformation, The Age of Acceleration and what it means for Real Estate.

GENERAL SESSION: THE AGE OF ACCELERATION | Navigating Global CRE Technology & Innovation
Celebrating 20 Years @ the Intersection of Real Estate, Technology, Automation & Innovation
The year was 1998 and we wondered out loud if the industry wanted to come together to discuss, evaluate and debate how technology, automation and innovation could potentially impact the commercial, corporate and institutional real estate. After all, we were in the midst of dot com and everyone was interested in technology, so we thought, why not real estate. 1999 was the inaugural year of Realcomm and over the next 20 years, we would scan the globe looking for technology and new ideas that would change our world. Searching Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Australia and of course North America, we left no stone unturned. In this segment, we will review the last 20 years of our journey, identifying the milestones, struggles and accomplishments and some interesting insights and prognostications on the next 20.

DAS/IN-BUILDING WIRELESS – New Technology, Coverage Standards & Partnership Options
We now live in a world of extremely flexible communications powered by mobile technologies. This requires robust, seamless, high-speed connectivity virtually everywhere, including inside our buildings. Whether it is an office, a mall, university, hospital or hotel, mobile access is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. Despite the mobile movement, the reality is that the ‘inside of our buildings have not kept pace with the outside’. Other than major, high profile, customer dense venues, ordinary buildings still struggle to offer the kind of mobile connectivity required. This has to change. This session will provide insight into next generation technologies such as 5G and Private LTE (CBRS), new strategies for traditional DAS and In-Building Wireless, and review the best practices for providing high quality wireless access inside buildings.

ENERGY INFORMATION PLATFORMS – Developing a Comprehensive Strategy
We continue to see a plethora of existing and new platforms developed to bring energy efficiency to buildings; a quick Google search on Energy Dashboards will demonstrate just how many choices there are. Besides the basic challenge of providing a good platform for retrieving and analyzing energy related data, additional capabilities must be considered. The platform needs to provide access to all necessary command and control functions and be able to integrate with the existing building automation system (as well as other applications) while maintaining one version of the truth. Beyond the platform functionality, questions on data ownership and the specific role of the Energy Dashboard as it relates to the overall comprehensive smart building strategy must be addressed. Strategic approaches to overcome these challenging issues will be discussed by the industry’s most experienced thought leaders.

High Performance DIGITAL AMENITIES – Tenant/Guest Engagement and Experience Platforms
Today, with a push of a button on our phone we can hail a car, order food, listen to music, tweet to the world, reserve tickets and buy almost anything – there seems to be an app for everything! So what happens when we walk into a office building? Today, consumers are opting more and more for a digital interaction to services and experiences, but find when they are at the office, things are quite different. Besides easy access to local and in-building amenities and services, how can interactions with indoor temperature, conference rooms and maintenance be provided through an elevated digital experience. How does a social component help create a community within an entire office building or complex? Tenant engagement and experience platforms are becoming more popular and setting new standards. This timely session will examine all aspects of creating digital amenities and the transparent digital experience in buildings that everyone has come to expect.

Smart Building IT, OT & Business Convergence – Achieving ORGANIZATIONAL REALIGNMENT
For years we’ve heard, “It is not about the technology; it is about the people, the organization.” The technology to implement a truly integrated, smart, high-performance, intelligent building is, for the most part, available. In fact, some would argue we have more technology than we need. The issue that warrants greater attention is: How do we realign our organizations to better facilitate these 21st century technologies? The structure of organizations that operate and manage our buildings—especially facilities, engineering and IT—need to become much more integrated. There are many examples of how misalignment slowed or stopped smart building projects. This insightful session will showcase individuals that have experienced success in realigning their organizations to better facilitate smart strategies.

Next Generation MICROGRIDS – Understanding the Potential for Large Scale Real Estate Projects
Historically, Microgrids made sense for large scale projects that required more sophisticated and resilient options for uninterrupted delivery of electricity. In some cases, the Microgrid served as the primary source of electricity; in other cases it acted as a backup. Traditional Microgrids primarily utilized natural gas and diesel fuel to run generators that create electricity. Fast forward to 2018, and we see a new generation of Microgrids that now incorporate sustainable energy sources such as solar and wind. Next generation electrical distribution operating platforms and advanced storage systems with innovative network controls manage the myriad processes. Rapidly becoming part of the enterprise energy strategy for a growing number of organizations, Microgrids could potentially redefine the overall architecture of the electric grid. This instructive session will feature the best and brightest thought leaders who are driving the next generation Microgrid discussion.

Developing, Implementing & Maintaining a BUILDING NETWORK Strategy
The concept is simple: put an IP-based network in a building to connect (and ultimately manage) all the disparate building systems—and possibly deliver digital services to tenants. While the concept is straightforward, there are a wide range of opinions on how to do it. One thing is certain: the concept of a base building network is becoming widely accepted. While some companies may be considering this for the first time, a growing number of organizations have already experienced multiple iterations of network design. Cloud, IoT, edge devices, wireless, cyber, business continuity, integration, segregation and performance all come into play when designing modern building network architecture.

Understanding the Options for a BUILDING OPERATING SYSTEM
Once the basic communications layer in a building is established, it's time to address plans pertaining to the BAS and IoT platform. Does the data reside in local closed environments? Is it sent to the cloud? Can it be shared or integrated into other applications? Should it be a single stack or part of an open, integrated point solution ecosystem? Who owns the data? Is it cyber secure? Can we safely and securely affect command and control? As we move to the next generation of smart, connected, high-performance, intelligent buildings, the capability and type of Building Operating System becomes even more critical. This comprehensive session will address the relevant issues surrounding the topic.

NET ZERO BUILDINGS – A High Benchmark for Next Generation Smart Buildings
The concept of designing a building with such precision that it could potentially create more energy than it uses is an admirable goal. Traditional Net Zero was achieved through the use of enlightened design concepts and renewable power sources, coupled with energy efficient building materials, grid connectivity and smart energy purchasing strategies. There is now a culture of forward-thinkers who are striving to either disconnect from the grid or be a net seller. Some of the tools used are: progressive building design, low voltage systems, Power Over Ethernet (POE), sophisticated controls, hyper-efficient equipment, use of renewable energy and more. This enlightening session will showcase leading Net Zero projects to provide attendees with best practices and highlight challenges and successes.

Imagine a multi-tenant building with myriad occupants—all with different needs and expectations when it comes to features associated with smart building occupancy. Access control, security, BMS, parking, signage, amenities and multiple other systems all have a relationship with the building owner and operator, and possibly unique relationships with the multitude of disparate tenants. The situation becomes even more complex if a single tenant occupies the majority of space in a building. The level of integration required to meet the demands of both landlords and tenants is reaching a level of unprecedented technical sophistication. This enlightening session will bring together the most experienced professionals representing both sides of the equation to discuss and debate what is required to make smart buildings work for everyone.

Developing a DATA ARCHITECTURE for Smart Buildings – The Thought Leaders Weigh In
Not long ago the idea of gleaning useful data from various building systems was unheard of. We now know there is a treasure trove of information waiting to tell us how the building is operating, and how we can best utilize it. For early adopters, concerns about data standards, data ownership, protocols, integration, interoperability, cloud, edge devices and cybersecurity were just a few of the considerations when developing a comprehensive data architecture for a building, campus or portfolio. After many lessons learned, we still may not be at a point of absolute certainty on the topic, but we are closer to an answer. This session will feature the foremost visionaries and thought leaders on the development of data architecture for buildings.

Co-Working & SPACE AS A SERVICE – Paradigm Shift or Slight Adjustments to an Existing Model?
With the advent of portable technologies, people have been working at home, on airplanes, in coffee shops, lobbies and anywhere else they could find quiet space with WiFi and good cellular connection. The evolution of the mobile worker has been in play for more than 30 years. The difference now is the ‘institutionalization’ of the idea and the creation of work environments that can efficiently and effectively offer amenities that support the mobile worker. Ranging from making desk reservations on a mobile phone to turning down the lights and ordering coffee, the new work environment is raising the bar on ‘the experience’. With companies like WeWork defining the space and everyone jumping in, what does this mean for traditional commercial real estate owners and operators?

INNOVATION vs. PRIVACY in Smart Connected Buildings – The Debate Heats Up!
Many have already concluded that privacy is dead. The placement of cameras, microphones and sensors everywhere does make a good argument for the demise of this traditionally treasured institution. However, on a simple level, ask a CEO if they would mind if everything said in their office was being recorded for all to hear. On a more complex note, if a lighting system with microphones is provided by a MANUFACTURER, installed by an INTEGRATOR at the direction of a SERVICE PROVIDER, in a TENANT's boardroom that is connected to the LANDLORD’s backbone, and an important meeting is breached resulting in severe financial consequences, WHO is responsible? These are the types of questions and unintended consequences that will be discussed and debated in this very important session.

Smart Buildings and DATA ANALYTICS – Has Reality Lived Up to the Hype?
The vision: pull data from the BAS, install millions of sensors, stream and organize terabytes of data with the objective of first understanding every aspect of your buildings' operations, then apply analytics/fault detection and advanced controls to create buildings that literally run themselves. Over the last three to four years, the continued smart building discussions coupled with the IoT market influences have yielded promises from solution providers that have been nothing short of extraordinary. More often than not, building owners and operators have fallen short of promised objectives. Despite all the hype, there are legitimate case studies that truly demonstrate the power of data analytics for smart buildings, campuses and portfolios.

From design and construction to continuing operations and maintenance, building and facilities processes can be represented by millions of data points. A ‘Digital Twin’, the digitized version of the physical structure, can serve as a repository of data from BIM, the BAS and sensor networks associated with the building’s infrastructure, as well as incorporate information from a variety of feeds from facility and business processes. Ideally, the digital replica would continuously update itself, as it is fed near real-time data from actual operations. AI and machine learning integrations help to uncover operation optimization opportunities within the virtual environment that can be applied to the real building.

HVAC – Edge Devices, Machine Learning and Connected Systems
Occupants need comfortable buildings, and HVAC is the foundational system for providing environmental comfort. For many years, these large and complex systems remained siloed and independent. Data from system components was difficult to access; integration with other building systems was a challenge, as the ability to integrate was often limited by the manufacturer. With the advent of the ‘open, integrated, interoperable, IP-centric’ movement, HVAC manufacturers are now addressing the growing needs of the industry. With the increased interest in the cloud, edge devices and machine learning, the last 12-18 months have seen significant advancements toward ‘open and IP- centric’. This instructive session will preview the latest HVAC technologies and then lead a conversation on the role of HVAC in the next generation of smart buildings.
