CRE Cybersecurity Forum

June 12 | 8:00AM-11:45AM | Nashville Music City Center

Over the past decade, weaponized code delivered by malicious actors has evolved to be one of the greatest threats to our country's welfare and economy. Cybercrime affects everyone, including individuals, businesses, organizations and government. It was inevitable that cyber threats would eventually find vulnerable commercial real estate targets, both at the enterprise and infrastructure level. Cybersecurity as it impacts the built environment remains one of the most requested topics in our industry. This Forum will bring together industry thought leaders to address the most high-impact cyber threats and leverage their experience and knowledge to set benchmarks for cybersecurity strategy. Much of the content for this forum will be developed by the ongoing work of the Real Estate Cyber Consortium (RECC). More Info

Smart Building Integrator Summit (SBIS)

June 12 | 1:30pm-6:00pm | Nashville Music City Center

To begin automating a building, all roads lead to a master systems integrator. In most cases, the integrator is the organization that will align industry solutions with the goals and objectives of the client. The single building, single vendor solution can no longer meet the needs of the market. In a world where IT is quickly encroaching on traditional building automation, yesterday's strategies no longer work. If you're a traditional integrator looking to expand your service offerings to meet the future needs of today's open architected, interoperable, integrated, IT centric intelligent buildings, portfolios, campuses and cities, you won't want to miss this dynamic Summit.

Smart Building Leadership Forum

June 12 | 5:00pm-6:00pm | Nashville Music City Center

In the early days, mechanical systems were standalone with little or no integration. Next came systems for smart buildings, focused on the idea of integrating these disparate systems for efficiency and cost savings. Today, the next generation of smart buildings is open architected, interoperable, integrated and IP-centric. They utilize smart edge devices and the cloud, and have expanded functionality that goes beyond one building to include portfolios and campuses, with a heavy emphasis on IoT. This forum gathers individuals and organizations that have been leading the way on this journey. These are the true innovators, early adopters, pioneers, risk takers and market creators who continue to pursue the next iteration of smart buildings and answer to the question, “What’s next?” More Info
