Back to the Office: What Does the ULTIMATE HYBRID WORK Environment Look Like?
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 8:40 am - 9:20 am    Location: Virtual
New York City office buildings are at less than 20% occupancy, major companies such as Google, Salesforce and others are pushing return dates to the summer of 2021 and the office we knew at the beginning of 2020 may be gone forever. Occupancy, density and utilization were already under attack and being challenged by coworking companies and the continued mobilization of the workforce, COVID-19 was simply an accelerant. The question on everyone’s mind is; “What does the new work environment look like?”. Hybrid is a word being widely used but many are unsure what it means. This session brings together senior IT leaders from some of the most successful companies to discuss what this new hybrid work environment, could, should, will look like.

Digital Transformation and COVID-19: What is the FUTURE of Commercial Real Estate
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 8:00 am - 8:35 am    Location: Virtual
Senior leaders in real estate organizations have been dealing with the impacts of digital transformation for some time. Coworking and office densification, data driven operations, virtualized environments and digital twins, IT/OT convergence, increasing digital connections with tenants and AI/machine learning – all are now facing critical COVID-19 and other health and wellness related issues. This pandemic accelerated the global work from home movement in ways never imagined. Executives know that when people return to buildings, they will need to be smarter, safer and more digitally capable than ever, while possibly dealing with lower income and higher expenses. Is this another micro trend or the beginning of a massive paradigm shift? Executive leaders weigh in on the biggest of issues.

The Data Driven Enterprise: Tech Strategies for Making Decisions in this Difficult Time
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 8:40 am - 9:15 am    Location: Virtual
Under normal circumstances the business of commercial real estate is complex and in continuous flux, but this pandemic has been like adding gas on the flames. Technology, data and innovation are now being used in ways never imagined. Lease payment delinquencies, defaults, debt restructuring, and day-to-day operations are just some of the challenges facing the industry. In these times of stress, a comprehensive, well-governed, enterprise data and workflow strategy is imperative. Knowing and predicting where tenants are before they do, tightening internal business processes, accurate budget forecasting and leveraging external data are just some of the topics to be discussed in this important conversation about data.

Working from Home or Anywhere: What Does Hybrid Really Mean?
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 9:30 am - 10:10 am    Location: Virtual
Most office buildings are at less than 10% occupancy. Major companies such as Google, Salesforce and others are pushing return dates to the summer of 2021 and the way we think about the office itself may have changed permanently. Occupancy, density and utilization were already under attack and being challenged by coworking companies and the continued mobilization of the workforce. COVID-19 was simply an accelerant and as a result, the world, including the most resistant senior management, has now learned to work remotely from anywhere. This session discusses and debates what the new hybrid operating model will look like and what it means for landlords and tenant in the short-, medium- and long-term.

Achieving PHYSICAL and VIRTUAL Balance: The Pandemic's Impact on Higher Education
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 8:00 am - 8:40 am    Location: Virtual
Higher Education has some of the greatest challenges when it comes to bringing students back to campus and into buildings. These small cities provide places for students to learn, recreate, eat and live. In addition to the high-density environment, the social nature of young college students makes campus repopulation even more difficult. Universities across the country and around the world are taking a wide array of approaches when it comes to bringing students back. Much lower populations and alternating schedules are complimenting online and other virtual/technical options. Smarter, safer buildings using COVIDtech, enhanced digital classrooms and other strategies are discussed by leading campus facilities professionals.

Approaching SMART MAINTENANCE in Higher Education Facilities
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 8:45 am - 9:20 am    Location: Virtual
Being able to clearly and quickly identify which systems are failing or underperforming can save campus facilities a significant amount of time, money and negative sentiment. This means moving from ‘fail and fix to predict and prevent”. Over the years, there have been many different approaches to FDD implementations, yielding varying degrees of success. Now we’re moving into the age of predictive and condition-based maintenance. These strategies are much more reliant on IoT, data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning and require a much higher degree of IT and technology skills of the operator. This valuable session allows attendees to explore how higher ed facilities leaders are moving into this next level of predictive and condition-based maintenance.

REMOTE Facility Monitoring and Control: The Future of Campus Operations?
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 9:35 am - 10:10 am    Location: Virtual
For years we have been talking about the smart, intelligent, connected and interoperable campus of the future. The idea is simple, connect all the various, disparate, multigenerational, various vendor systems into a cohesive and comprehensive networked strategy and managing a campus would become much more efficient and effective. The COVID-19 Pandemic has added a new perspective to the conversation, remote access and management capabilities. At a time when getting people physically into facilities has become more challenging, being able to access the campus systems from a laptop or iPad makes a great deal of sense. This session focuses on the current and future state of remote system access as a part of the smart campus strategy.

Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 8:00 am - 8:30 am    Location: Virtual
Over the last 30 years the concept of a smart building has evolved greatly. We have gone from proprietary closed systems to integrated, interoperable, cloud enabled architectures. We have also gone through phases focusing on energy conservation, sustainability, operating efficiency, financial optimization, occupant experience and now health and wellness with a COVID-19 focus. While the overall strategy for a smart building remains the same, the pandemic has provided many challenges and subsequent opportunities. This session will review strategy and standards for smart buildings, use-cases as contrasted with systems and features and will culminate with a review of best practices, all aligned with the realities of an elusive pandemic.

Expanding IT, Heightened CYBERSECURITY and RISK Management in Times of Crisis
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 8:45 am - 9:15 am    Location: Virtual
In the days of “building automation”, the systems were basic, were not connected, had very little IT interface, did not collect or share data or effectively communicate with each other. Fast forward to 2020 and the day of the IT connected facility has arrived. With this strong reliance on Information Technology (IT), the smart building architecture has become much more sophisticated and subject to more scrutiny and attention to issues such as Cybersecurity. In today’s smart building strategy, IT is the foundation. This session will cover; the backbone (wired and wireless), Cybersecurity fundamentals and remote access to buildings, building systems and cybersecurity policies and finally, exploring the boundaries of risk management.

Operational Efficiency, Health, Sustainability and Occupant Experience in the NEW NORMAL
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 9:30 am - 10:00 am    Location: Virtual
It is becoming more and more clear that the goals for embracing a smart building strategy are wide ranging and comprehensive. It does not make sense to pursue only one goal such as operational efficiency or occupant experience but rather develop a strategy that includes all goals. This provides for a more complete integrated approach as well as a faster path to financial justification. Developing a comprehensive integrated strategy for smart buildings is critical when setting project objective. This session will bring together industry thought leaders to discuss; BAS, Lighting and metering, big data, building analytics and fault detection, AI separating fact from fiction and applications “apps” for building managers, tenants and visitors.

RESET Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Standards and the System Integrator
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 10:35 am - 10:50 am    Location: Virtual
Much study has been done on Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) recently. It wasn’t long ago that IAQ meant simply managing outdoor air and CO2 levels in our HVAC systems. Then academic research from Harvard demonstrated that VOCs and various particulates, including microbes, have a measurable negative impact on health, wellness and productivity. We’re seeing a number of new IAQ standards that address commercial buildings and RESET has emerged as one of the most comprehensive, forward looking standards, assessment tools, and services organizations developed specifically to provide actionable, long term strategies towards health and sustainability for the built environment. In this, session we introduce RESET and discuss the relevance for our Integrator community.

For decades a healthy building meant that it was relatively “clean” and that it met OSHA requirements. Over the past few years, largely due to the research of Joe Allen at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the WELL, FITWELL, ASHRAE and RESET Standards, we now have a much more holistic, and scientific view of exactly what contributes to occupant wellness and healthy buildings and why it’s important to us as humans. In this session we examine the components of a healthy building strategy and as many of these initiatives may be collecting sensitive data, we also touch on data privacy and governance.

Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 11:45 am - 12:15 pm    Location: Virtual
Rapidly advancing technology to enable smart homes, buildings, and industries is outrunning the security needed to protect our lives, privacy, and resources. Increasingly, we depend on integrated, digital control systems to govern and monitor all aspects of our daily lives, including our critical infrastructure and commercial real estate. While digital technology improves efficiency, the downside is exponentially increased vulnerability to cyber exploitation or attack. Whether it is a nominal incident perpetrated by a mischievous individual or a massive, coordinated breach to strike fear in our customers, it is critical that we stay informed on cyber threats and their implications and there is no better way to understand what the threat landscape looks like than to review what has been happening in our industry. For this session we’ve invited The Honorable Lucian Niemeyer currently working many of these issues for the federal government in the Office of Management and Budget to address emerging threats, documented attacks, and the impact and relevance to building owners and operators.

To say that these are “unprecedented” times is an understatement. From the multi-decade real estate veteran to the first-year employee, everyone is witnessing things never seen before.

During all of this change, technology continues to play a key role.

The Foundation for a Comprehensive Strategy: Defining the ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 2:30 pm - 3:15 pm    Location: Virtual
There are a multitude of different processes that must be automated within a Commercial Real Estate operation. While this requirement once only focused on ‘back end’ operations, automation of processes for buildings and tenants is also becoming the norm. Which application stack to choose, where the data resides, how it is normalized and communicated, and cybersecurity requirements are just some of the questions being asked. With so many platform options ranging from mobile to cloud, and data sets from an increasing number of solutions, the complexity increases daily. In the end, a Master Plan or Enterprise Architecture Strategy is critical. Lessons and insights from the most experienced organizations are presented.

The Real Estate ENTERPRISE DATA STRATEGY: Developing a Cohesive Plan
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Virtual
Back office data, smart building, IoT, tenant/occupant as well as some very interesting public and private external data sources have been developing exponentially over the years. Add to this the increasing number of new data streams associated with emerging communication technologies such as WiFi 6, BLE, CBRS and 5G and the puzzle gets even more complicated. This data has traditionally resided in disconnected equipment, spreadsheets, outdated computing solutions and now numerous cloud platforms. Organizing data into a cohesive strategy is critical in order to achieve organizational efficiency as well as hyper-effective business insight. It is no longer an option to rely on disconnected, disparate and unorganized data, hence this session focuses on the development of a strategic data strategy.

Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 4:30 pm - 5:15 pm    Location: Virtual
Consider all the information required to keep a Real Estate operation in motion; the list is daunting. The traditional data sources include accounting, leasing, property management and now smart building solutions. In addition to all the internal data, there is a growing list of external sources that must be integrated into the overall strategy. Sales comps, rental rates, occupancy, tenant intelligence; local, regional, national and international economic information; retail, office and other sector specific trend data; other data sets such as weather and utility costs. All these can play into an effective data strategy. External information has significant relevance and its importance are outlined and discussed in this session.

Enabling The "Expanded" Enterprise DIGITAL MINDSET
Date: 10/27/2020    Time: 10:00 am - 10:45 am    Location: Virtual
For many Commercial Real Estate organizations, the digital transformation journey has been a challenge. Having a business based on in-person meetings and file cabinets, it was not always easy to change the analog culture of a company. IT teams were already expanding the digital mindset to move from simple back office functions to also include tenant and occupant experiences and smart buildings. If that was not enough, the outbreak of COVID-19 reconfigured the digital mindset to include a much more robust work from home component and many of the old rules are simply outdated. The Real Estate industry as a whole has seen more change forced upon them in a few months and reconfiguring the culture is a focus of this session.

Navigating LEASE RISK in Volatile Times at the Tenant, Property and Portfolio Level

Since COVID-19 hit, business interruption has been significant. While some have seen little impact and even improvements, many if not most traditional businesses, including landlords, have been negatively impacted. Office, retail and industry landlords are faced with the need to project NOI when much of the data they are used to relying on is no longer relevant. In this new reality, industry players looking to assess lease risk and value at the tenant, property and portfolio levels are now looking to new solutions from the technology and data world to empower more robust predictions and look at risk factors more in-tune with the times, like the WFH shift, rent relief requests and more.

Fast forward to today, high-speed internet, an explosion of mobile devices and a significant improvement in technology such as video and cloud and the WFH movement has become increasingly more widespread. Despite this potential, many organizations including Silicon Valley Tech giants have resisted this change. Many have required an in-office presence (Yahoo)– until COVID-19. Since March, the entire world has gotten a lesson in working from home (the good and the bad). It has changed the landscape and the question now begs, what’s next?

What works and what doesn’t for remote workers? How do we leverage what has worked well and then, how do we improve it? How have our tenants shifted behavior and is that changing the way we work? How can technology further support the future of work? Now that we have changed our view on “proximity” being a main driver of efficiency and productivity, will we see more outsourcing of certain activities? In this important session we hear from key industry leaders grappling with these questions and more

Hyper Efficiency: The ROBOTIC PROCESS AUTOMATION (RPA) Journey Continues
Date: 10/27/2020    Time: 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Virtual
Many CIOs are turning to Robotic Process Automation to eliminate redundant and tedious tasks to focus on more productive activities. In order to be effective, RPA requires proper design, planning, execution and governance. While some see RPA as a stopgap to intelligent automation based on machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), it remains a top automation option in an IT strategy. Using RPA tools, a company can configure a software ‘robot’ to automatically process a transaction, manipulate data, trigger responses, or communicate with other digital systems. Developing a plan, assessing current needs and systems, selecting platforms, and strategy execution are all be part of this important discussion.

Post-COVID Perspectives from Senior Investment Managers: A View from the Debt Field
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Virtual
One of the most impacted markets within commercial real estate this year has been in commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS). According to Moody’s Analytics August report, “approximately $34.8 billion has subsequently moved into special servicing, more than triple the overall balance in just four months”. Servicers have seen the 60 – 89 day delinquency rate for CMBS loans skyrocket, especially those within the hospitality and retail markets – less in industrial and office. Loan defaults and loss rates will still present serious challenges in the coming months. Some servicers have also been able to capitalize on unforeseen opportunities that were created as a result of the coronavirus. During this virtual roundtable discussion, we explore each of their responses and get their assessments of the impact of COVID-19 on the commercial real estate and the CMBS market.

In January 2020, the traditional office was bustling. Ever evolving and moving toward flexibility and improved occupant engagement, that trajectory abruptly stopped by mid-March. COVID-19 had spread to North America and the office as we know it may never be the same. After months of almost no occupancy, people are very slowly returning. On average, 10% occupancy seems to be the current number while some corporate tenants have pushed their return into the summer of 2021. How do we make buildings safe? What are the new amenities? How many office workers will return? These are just some of the many questions being asked. This session includes those organizations leading the way back into the office and the lessons they have learned.

ACCELERATING REOCCUPANCY: Can Tech Help Get Tenants Back Safely and Confidently Into Our Buildings?
Date: 10/28/2020    Time: 10:00 am - 10:45 am    Location: Virtual
The re-entry to commercial properties will be much slower than the exit. Landlords and property managers are now challenged to ensure that they are doing everything necessary to create and operate a safe and healthy building for staff, tenants and guests. Existing building operations tools are being stretched to the breaking point with new post-COVID health and wellness requirements – from sanitizing inspections to enhanced tenant communication. A true building operations platform allows property teams to digitize their processes and sets the foundation for tech adoption, this is the robust system owners and operators need. And this growing list of complex requirements are redefining the concept of traditional building operations platforms. In this session, our panel of innovative industry execs explore how they’re leveraging technology to enable a smooth reoccupancy process while responding to ever-shifting tenant needs.

Identifying and REMEDIATING Gaps Between Physical, Cybersecurity and the New Normal
Date: 10/27/2020    Time: 9:00 am - 9:45 am    Location: Virtual
Now that just about every device and subsystem in buildings is IP-enabled and communicating data in real time, the potential of cyber threats has escalated exponentially. Each time we add new technology and equipment, whether to meet the needs of environmental policies, occupancy monitoring, access or physical security controls, we run the risk of exposing cyber vulnerabilities. This fundamental problem has been exacerbated by the mass deployment of COVID related solutions that have been installed, often without the proper infrastructure or InfoSec standard. In this session, we review strategies and solutions to mitigate the risk of deploying these new IoT devices and connecting them to our building networks.

PRIVACY in Connected Healthy Buildings: Efficiency, Experience, Safety and Surveillance
Date: 10/27/2020    Time: 4:30 pm - 5:15 pm    Location: Virtual
COVID-19 has impacted the world and the focus on healthy buildings has been taken to a new level. Exceptional air quality, clean surfaces, touchless entry solutions and healthy occupants are just some of the goals. There is no doubt that new protocols and the connected building will play a role in achieving these new benchmarks. Wellness as well as efficiency and experience will require a fair amount of new technology. With all of this connectivity, including sensors, cameras, microphones, location services, contact tracing, analytics and AI, the potential for hyper-surveillance is here. GDPR in Europe and CCPA in California are leading the privacy fight, but the debate of health over privacy has just begun for building owners and operators.

Reinventing the TENANT EXPERIENCE in the Current and Post-COVID Era
Date: 10/27/2020    Time: 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Virtual
At the beginning of 2020, the tenant experience conversation was continuing the trajectory it started more than five years ago. Desk sharing efficiency, tenant apps that scheduled yoga and ordered coffee and immersive experiences, were just a few of the talking points of the conversation. Since COVID-19 has stopped the world in its tracks, experiences in buildings are quite different. Due to health restrictions, yoga and the coffee pot are gone, high density, flexible seating is unsafe and many of the traditional amenities that used to attract tenants are no longer viable. This session explores what some of the most innovative and creative landlords are doing to create a compelling, post-COVID tenant experience.

What is a Smart Building?: Establishing a Concise and Comprehensive VISION
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 2:30 pm - 3:15 pm    Location: Virtual
What exactly is a smart building and why are there so many different definitions? Industry goals and objectives include energy savings, operational efficiency, sustainability, enhanced occupant experience which now is focused on health and wellness, and financial optimization. While seemingly straightforward, many organizations struggle with clearly defining their particular business objectives and goals surrounding a smart building strategy. In addition, communicating the vision throughout the entire building ecosystem and supply chain in a clear and concise manner is critical. Too many times, the original vision is value engineered out during the process. This important session is designed for those organizations at the early stage of the smart building journey.

Long Development Cycles and Changing Tech: ALIGNING SMART BUILDING TEAMS
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Virtual
Most buildings are built with a 50-75-year life expectancy. Contrast that paradigm with a scenario where emerging advanced building technologies change daily and the challenge of developing future-ready buildings becomes apparent. The technology features of major building systems are advancing so rapidly that a spec’d component may become functionally obsolete before the project is even completed. Those managing the design and construction process need to be aligned. What are the standards? What does integration look like? Will new equipment manufacturers and software providers survive? Will the new technologies complement existing investments, or be totally obsolete? Join the discussion on how to align these sometimes contrasting realities.

Virtual IBcon | Smart Building Data

INCLUDED SESSIONS ARE:

SMART MAINTENANCE: Conditional and Predictive
Date: 10/26/2020    Time: 4:30 pm - 5:15 pm    Location: Virtual
Historically we have either adhered to a strict maintenance schedule or waited for a piece of equipment to break before it was attended to. Today, most new equipment comes from the manufacturer with on-board analytics and sensors which can dynamically report how the systems are performing, increasing the potential for conditional and predictive maintenance exponentially. Adding a vibration sensor to a chiller to monitor physical changes in motor operations (condition-based) or analyzing changing patterns as a result of aggressive data aggregation and analysis (predictive) allows organizations to take a much more quantified and scientific approach to maintaining their buildings. Understanding the architecture required for system connectivity, warehousing options, as well as the plethora of analytics tools, are the foundation for this discussion.

DIGITAL TWINS for Buildings: Understanding This Complex and Evolving Solution Set
Date: 10/27/2020    Time: 3:30 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Virtual
Digital Twins are virtual representations of building that integrate data from BIM, BAS, IoT, workflows and other data sources and bring this data together where it is then normalized and semantically tagged to provide context and understanding of what is going on in the building in real-time, 3D, highly visual format. The goal is to create a living digital representation of a building which would be used as a platform for dynamic, ongoing predictive operations and maintenance. To achieve this goal, a few questions need to be addressed. What are the challenges? Do we need data standards? How difficult and costly is it to maintain the integrity of the model? This session discusses the opportunities as well as a potential roadmap for Digital Twins for buildings.

Power Over Ethernet (PoE) and Digital Electricity: LOW VOLTAGE Buildings Arrive
Date: 10/28/2020    Time: 8:00 am - 8:45 am    Location: Virtual
The historic battle between DC and AC (Edison vs. Tesla and Westinghouse) for electricity standards was epic and literally changed the course of our nation. The capabilities, efficiency and cost of the two competing technologies resulted in AC becoming the standard. Many still believe, however, that DC (both high and low voltage) is the logical choice now, especially in buildings. In the quest for Zero Net Energy Buildings, several innovative developers have attempted to employ low voltage DC systems in buildings. Today, PoE and Digital Electricity are getting attention as a significantly less expensive and flexible option. From small test projects to entire buildings, low voltage DC is gaining momentum.

Reoccupancy and What the Future Holds for Commercial and Corporate Real Estate
Date: 10/28/2020    Time: 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm    Location: Gaylord Rockies
Many are focused on the short term and what re-occupancy into buildings looks like in the next 3-6 months. The business and financial disruption has been substantial and people are anxious to get back to some type of normal. However, the impacts accelerated by the pandemic have deeper roots and cannot be ignored. Working from home, mobile workers, long commutes, increased density and flex workspaces were issues and trends that were all in play well before COVID. Now that the pandemic has fast-tracked digital transformation, what comes next? Will buildings ever be used in the same way again? What about density and what role will technology play in creating immersive environments? These are all questions to be explored in this opening session.

Driving Commercial and Corporate Real Estate Innovation in a COVID World
Date: 10/28/2020    Time: 5:30 pm - 6:00 pm    Location: Gaylord Rockies
In an attempt to stay relevant in the ever-changing real estate industry, corporate innovation programs are finding their way into the digital transformation fabric of commercial real estate. The problem is that innovation does not happen simply because it’s part of a someone’s job title. It happens when people want it to happen. It’s the result of a holistic environment and culture fostered to allow new ways of thinking and conducting business. Add in a global pandemic and a real need to solve new unforeseen challenges emerges. In this session, we examine how a mix of current critical needs along with grass-roots level innovative thinking has forced businesses to think differently.

Cyber Incident Report: The Major Threats to Commercial and Corporate Real Estate
Date: 10/29/2020    Time: 1:45 pm - 2:15 pm    Location: Gaylord Rockies
There is a great deal of activity in the cyberspace and that holds true for the built environment. With concerns of smart building infrastructure breaches, the potential for disruption grows daily. Whether it is a nominal incident perpetrated by a mischievous individual or a massive, coordinated breach orchestrated by a nation state, it is critical that every real estate organization takes note of these threats and their implications.

Smart Connected Buildings and the Impacts of a Global Pandemic
Date: 10/29/2020    Time: 2:15 pm - 3:00 pm    Location: Gaylord Rockies
The smart building conversation is not a new one. Starting with vendor specific proprietary systems, then moving to open, integrated, interoperable and IP-centric and now onto building IoT, the conversation has evolved. At first it was about energy, then operational efficiency, sustainability, occupant experience and now health and wellness. The truth is, a smart building should include all of these objectives. There is no doubt that COVID has changed the trajectory and the industry is being forced to rethink itself. How will owners and operators afford the tech while experiencing financial difficulties? Will portfolios shrink? Which buildings take priority? Will innovation suffer? These are just some of the difficult issues that will be addressed at this session.

COVID-19: Implications for Sustainable Real Estate
Date: 10/29/2020    Time: 3:45 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Gaylord Rockies
For a few years now, the environmental, social and governance conversations have been relatively quiet. But now, COVID is supercharging this movement within the CRE sector, led by giants like Blackrock, REIT Prologis, CBRE and corporate names like Unilever and HP. The good news is that data produced by smart facilities solutions meet many of the demands of this new market for transparency and wellness, and set the stage for actionable improvement in portfolio performance on energy, water use, waste and other issues.

Moving into the Virtual World: The Future is Now
Date: 10/29/2020    Time: 4:15 pm - 4:45 pm    Location: Gaylord Rockies
Not too long ago, you needed to jump in a car and drive to a location to do something: an office to work, a mall to shop, theater to watch a movie or an arcade to play a video game. In the last 20-30 years, that has all changed because of technology. Now most, if not all of our lives, can be serviced online. Still, humans by our nature need and want to be together. However, through technology advancements and ever-increasing expectations, physical environments need to be expanded with extraordinary virtual experiences. Long gone is the reliance on only analog tools. This illuminating session provides insight from world class leaders in the area of virtual, augmented and immersive technology, something every building owner and operator needs to understand.

However, the impacts accelerated by the pandemic have deeper roots and cannot be ignored. Working from home, mobile workers, long commutes, increased density and flex workspaces were issues and trends that were all in play well before COVID. Now that the pandemic has fast-tracked digital transformation, what comes next? Will buildings ever be used in the same way again, what about density and what role will technology play in creating immersive environments, are all questions to be explored in this opening session.
