INCLUDED SESSIONS ARE:

The Journey Begins – Creating a Comprehensive SMART BUILDING STRATEGY
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 11:45 am - 12:45 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
There are numerous opinions on the definition of a smart, connected, energy-efficient, digitally engaging, intelligent building. There are some common categories in which most people group smart building attributes: energy/sustainability, operational efficiency, space utilization, occupant experience, and wellness. Due to traditional organizational structures, these five components are often dealt with separately. A comprehensive smart building strategy must be wide and deep and take into consideration all five groups at the same time, as well as roll-up into a comprehensive portfolio view. This session will bring together those organizations who have spent years developing their smart building strategies, sharing their challenges and successes.

'Smart' Gets Complicated – A Conversation Between LANDLORDS and TENANTS
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
Developing a smart building or campus for a single tenant is quite different than working in a multi-tenant environment. Historically, the landlord had responsibility for the common areas and their responsibility stopped at the tenant’s front door. As buildings have become more technologically complex the lines have begun to blur. Data sharing, building network accessibility, wireless infrastructure, access control strategies and integration of different occupant experience applications are just some of the instances where technology is forcing a rethink of the relationship between tenant and landlord. Thought leaders from both sides of the table will lead this discussion on their changing roles and responsibilities.

Building a SMART BUILDING TEAM – Navigating in a Skills Shortage Environment
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
If an organization is serious about developing or retrofitting a building to exemplify next generation thinking, it truly needs to be a group effort. If every aspect of the building is going to be rethought as it relates to new and emerging technologies, a variety of intellectual capabilities will be required. Once leadership, vision and budgets are established, the work of building a team begins. Internal personnel as well as a multitude of external resources must be assembled to effectively deliver the next generation building. To add to the complexity, this must be done in an environment where technology is changing daily and the required skills are in short supply and high demand. Those with real-world experience in this process will share their perspective and insights.

An Important Part of the Smart Building Strategy Process – A Modern Approach to the REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP)
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
The process of developing buildings has been constantly redefined over the last 50-75 years. Each new project brings new opportunity to rethink the many components that make up a building. However, the level of innovation actually accomplished with each iteration is up for debate. One of the key components is the RFP Process. It is here that ideas are defined and various providers have the opportunity to respond with their capabilities. In many cases, due to time constraints and the fact that building technologies historically did not change fast, many continue to use outdated techniques. This session will focus on historical methodologies in the RFP process compared to new, more digital and innovative approaches.

Understanding the Options – Unpacking the BUILDING OPERATING SYSTEM
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
We’re continually connecting more devices in buildings for the purpose of data collection and control. As the complexity of smart buildings increases, so does the need to have an organized, comprehensive, standardized way of managing all these different systems. Over time, the debate has even questioned the need for a Building Operating System. While there are data integration platforms, dashboards, analytics programs and other applications associated with smart buildings, the question remains: “What are the best options when it comes to meeting the requirements of what one would consider a holistic building operating system?” Industry thought leaders will weigh in on this important topic.

BUILDING NETWORKS/LANs and WANs – The Foundation for Smart Buildings
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
The idea of a base building network to provide digital amenities to tenants and visitors, as well as a connection point for a multitude of disparate building systems has come of age. For the most progressive owners and operators, a building network is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. Defining the building network architecture is one of the most important decisions to be made. Fiber, copper, wireless, switches, routers, controllers, firewalls and device connectivity are just some of the technical issues which must be considered. The decisions get more complex as you add more buildings to the WAN and begin to design a connected portfolio or campus. The industries’ most experienced professionals will share their perspective on this important topic.

The Intersection of Two Worlds – The Continuing Convergence of IT and OT
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
One of the biggest paradigm changes today in smart buildings is the convergence of Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT). Historically, they’ve been two distinctly different worlds and those responsible for building systems have (at best) not had much reason to work with IT, and (at worst) looked at IT as a necessary evil. With the rise of IoT devices in buildings and the evolution of building management systems, IT and OT face the challenge of having to be increasingly technically integrated, which often raises concerns when it comes to skill sets and organizational structure. Organizations who have successfully integrated these two groups will offer their insights to the audience.

A Path to Success – Developing a Smart Building DATA ARCHITECTURE Strategy
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 11:45 am - 12:45 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
As more systems found in buildings become smart, they produce prodigious amounts of data. Building devices such as HVAC, lighting, access, surveillance, parking, and other non-traditional BAS systems now come with more local intelligence capable of capturing and performing local data operations ‘at the edge’. The enormity of the data captured and recorded requires serious consideration and planning for data modeling and architecture so it can be successfully operationalized. How this data is collected, transported, normalized, integrated, secured and operationalized is critical to the success of a smart building. Given the evolving complexity of the captured data sets, developing a comprehensive data architecture strategy is one of the most important foundational steps in a smart building plan.

Delivering a digitally assisted experience in a corporate occupier environment requires a different strategy than that of a landlord providing a tenant engagement app for a building. Providing a unified employee experience across a company’s owned and leased space; identifying useful app functions that can be adjusted for different portfolio sites; as well as integration into a landlord’s building systems in a leased space setting are just some of the challenges corporates face. Over the last 12-18 months, companies have been wrestling with multiple issues including the questions around functionality and whether to buy vs. build. This timely and important topic will be analyzed by some of the industry’s most forward-thinking companies.

Delivering Occupant Experience @ Scale – The SERVICE PROVIDERS Jump-In
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
Few in the Commercial and Corporate Real Estate industry have more experience than the Service Providers. Those who offer property and facility services as a business do it for a large number of companies and at a grand scale, and with all this activity comes a great deal of insight and perspective. Service Providers have been advising on the topic of Occupant Experience for a number of years. Recently, some of the global giants have taken the next step and have begun to provide Space-as-a-Service, flex pace, and coworking, competing with industry newcomers such as WeWork, Convene and others. Given their long history in our industry, their insight on this topic should prove invaluable.

Navigating the Marketplace – A SHOWCASE of the Leading Occupant Experience Solutions
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 10:45 am - 11:45 am    Location: Nashville Music City Center
It started five to seven years ago with applications to micro-control HVAC. Then came suggestions for lighting and access control. Add on conference room scheduling, event reservations, food and beverage orders and the idea of personally interfacing with your building from a mobile device began to swell. Just like Uber changed the local transportation industry forever, building occupant experience applications are poised to raise the bar for comfort and conveniences inside a building. Recently, there has been an extraordinary influx of over 30 new companies in this space. Keeping track of and understanding these solutions can be a daunting task. This showcase will bring the best to the stage and allow attendees to get a good understanding of the landscape.

A New Opportunity for Owners – MONETIZING In-Building Wireless Platforms
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
For the most part, the cost of installing an in-building wireless infrastructure for cell coverage and/or WiFi was usually absorbed by the owner. In a few cases, carriers paid for their installation in high profile projects. Since wireless infrastructure is usually considered a cost, it is hard to understand how it might generate income. With the new and upcoming platforms, speed and reliability will increase while costs are coming down. Location services in conjunction with advanced marketing solutions, private networks and the opportunity to provide broadband to tenants as a service are all ideas that have the potential to generate revenue. Some of the industry’s most forward thinking in-building wireless professionals will discuss and debate this new possibility.

A High Priority – Improving Cellular and Radio Coverage Inside Buildings for PUBLIC SAFETY
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 10:45 am - 11:45 am    Location: Nashville Music City Center
Most people assume that the public safety radios used by firemen, police and medical personnel always work at all emergency sites. The reality is that these radios often do not work inside buildings due to the design and materials used in the structures. According to latest data from FCC, 70 percent of all 911 calls are made from cell phones. Given the importance of public safety along with the issue of reliable cellular and radio coverage, this issue is getting more attention. While there are options in the marketplace, complexity and cost are keeping adoption from mainstream scale. This session will explore the existing options as well as emerging technologies that are promising to improve this important issue.

Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 12:15 pm - 12:45 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
In the beginning there were KIOSKs and TVs, then came flat screens hanging on walls. We saw them everywhere, airports, lobbies, restaurants, malls and offices. They provided directions, directories, advertising and news. Over the last three years, a new technology has made its way forward—high-resolution LED panels that can be used to construct walls of any size. These stunning screens provide new immersive and reactive visual experiences beyond the traditional contents and are radically changing how we look at both the inside and outside of buildings. Many believe that this technology will someday be classified as a building material. For anyone trying to understand what a future digital building ‘looks’ like, this is a must attend session.

Sensors, Networks, Experience and More – LIGHTING Takes on a Whole New Meaning
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 3:15 pm - 3:45 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
Lights were once very analog; you turned them on or off, and maybe they could dim. We then moved on to occupancy sensing which automatically turned off lights when no one was in the room. Over the past decade, the idea of networked lighting has been continuously evolving; it is now a central point of the smart building discussion. With voice-assisted activation, active shading, occupancy sensors, light harvesting, indoor air quality, CO2/O2 monitoring, noise detection, noise monitoring, network/cloud access and more, lighting has become one of the central components of a connected building. This session will offer the opportunity for attendees to learn about the most advanced lighting ideas from the industry’s most innovative thought leaders.

Water, Weather, Air Quality and Beyond – Navigating the World of Connected SENSORS
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 4:00 pm - 4:30 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
Sensors are now finding their way into almost every sort of electrical-mechanical device found in a building—Samba, PIR (Passive Infrared Sensor), lighting, occupancy, motion-detection in cameras, the list goes on. We are also seeing a proliferation of sensors in equipment outside traditional building automation. Meters, weather stations, air quality, noise, parking occupancy, moisture, leakage, and bathroom supplies are just some of the newest entrants to the building sensor world. As these sensors get smaller, more powerful and less expensive, they bring a whole new set of operational opportunities. Along with the good comes a host of challenges, including integration, maintenance, and privacy. In this session, we will examine this important topic in the smart building conversation.

The Path to Accurate People Counting – OCCUPANCY SENSING and PEOPLE TRACKING Enters Next Stage
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 4:45 pm - 5:15 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
One of the most talked about issues in the built environment today is the maximization of space utilization. With pressures mounting to achieve maximum financial performance, there are now numerous ways to determine how well you are utilizing office space. As many companies move to activity-based workspaces, some occupancy sensors are also being used for people finding. Beyond the office environment, occupancy data has become a powerful tool for retail lease negotiations and retail space configurations, as it provides valuable insights into shopper traffic. Access control systems, surveillance cameras, occupancy sensors in ceilings, lights or chairs as well as that powerful communications device we carry in our pockets called the mobile phone are just some of the technologies for occupancy sensing and people tracking available today. This enlightening session will focus on the associated technical, operational, financial and privacy issues.

From Occupant Experience to Maintenance Requests – LOCATION SERVICES Are Coming of Age
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 5:30 pm - 6:00 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
Technology infrastructures in buildings are increasingly developing the ability to detect where we are, as well as determine our gender, age, and health. It can now even take an educated guess at our emotional state. Whether you are trying to send out location-based marketing notifications, let someone know their train is late, guide a visitor around a corporate campus, or communicate to maintenance that there are five repairs needed within 50 feet of their current location, there are huge potential opportunities. There are also myriad technical and privacy issues to be addressed. Hear from the pioneers in location services about their journey, and learn about their successes and challenges along the way.

PEOPLE MOVING Goes Digital – Lifts, Escalators and People Movers Get Connected
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 10:30 am - 11:00 am    Location: Nashville Music City Center
As Real Estate projects get bigger and more complex, the task of moving people both vertically and horizontally becomes more challenging. Speed, energy efficiency, reliability, convergence with other systems, and safety are just some of the important issues to be addressed. Motion detection escalators, destination dispatch elevators, twin lifts, moving walks (and other much awaited horizontal systems), many with building network integrations and digital media are just some of the innovations. With all these new ideas, we must be sure these systems are safe and secure from cyber breaches. Identifying the perfect balance between user experience, innovation, safety and cost effectiveness will be the goal of this session.

Bikes, Scooters and More – CONNECTED TRANSPORTATION and Smart Buildings
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 11:15 am - 11:45 am    Location: Nashville Music City Center
Almost every city, as well as many corporate and higher education campuses now offer motorized bikes and scooters from a variety of different providers, including the nearly ubiquitous Bird and Lime. These automated rental services make it easy for people to efficiently locate and purchase time on small electric vehicles. Clearly, these services will play a part in the integrated transportation last-mile conversation, but some discussion and debate is still required. Outright bans, traffic law violations, abandoned bikes and scooters, vehicle confiscation companies and private property rights are all up for discussion. As the world and buildings become more connected, this 21st century rental model could impact most building owners and operators.

Ingress and Egress – A Status Report on the State of ACCESS CONTROL
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
In today’s uncertain world, security inside a building, especially a high profile one, is of highest priority. Managing how huge numbers of employees, contractors, suppliers, visitors, maintenance personnel and other unique occupants access the building involves challenges to ensure safety from outside threats. There are a variety of technologies and processes to facilitate secure access including physical ID, RFID, hand-swipe, employer card-key, mobile phone, as well as facial and gait recognition. In addition to providing the primary purpose of secure access, there is also the need for tight, safe integrations into other building systems, including destination dispatch elevators and tenant systems. This session will include state-of-the-art conversations on the topic.

A Focus on PHYSICAL SECURITY – Machine Learning and Other Technology Tools Emerge
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 1:40 pm - 2:10 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
A long-standing part of the building landscape (especially office buildings and malls) has been the security guard. Tasked with keen observance and keeping occupants safe, security guard duties will possibly be replaced—or at least augmented—by robots, drones, facial recognition, advanced audio and video technologies, gunshot recognition, particulate sensing (for bomb detection) and more. As part of a connected building strategy, it is important to develop a comprehensive physical security strategy that encompasses all of the various technologies and their capabilities. This valuable session will gather the most forward-thinking professionals on the topic of advanced physical security for the built environment.

Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 2:20 pm - 2:50 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are finding their way into many different applications including video surveillance. When you combine AI with facial recognition, the potential increases substantially. In China, this type of advanced technology is being implemented at a national level and as a result it is being tried, tested and improved at an unprecedented pace. The use of advanced surveillance inside buildings to maintain a secure environment makes sense to many professionals. This session will examine the latest technology developments—including those coming out of China—and explore the use cases for AI and facial recognition inside and around buildings. It will include a spirited discussion on the potential threats to individual privacy.

Planning for AUTONOMOUS Vehicles – Impacts to Access, Parking and More
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm    Location: Nashville Music City Center
While the first mention of autonomous vehicles can be traced back to the 1950s, the modern conversation really began with Tesla’s release of the Roadster in 2008 and the ultimate introduction of driver assist and autonomous in 2014. Over the last five years, there have been prognostications of parking lot extinction and the demise of steering wheels. As it turns out, the world works at a different pace than technology and change usually takes longer than expected. Ingress/egress strategies for autonomous vehicles, parking structure configuration options and automated parking are some of the issues on the table. This session will provide a thoughtful conversation on the state of autonomous vehicles and the impacts on building design and smart building functions.
