The Value of the Independent Data Layer (IDL)
Date: 6/14/2022    Time: 4:45 pm - 5:00 pm    Location: Orange County Convention Center
This session explores the value of the independent data layer in smart building infrastructure deployment. A generic definition of the IDL is a real-time, time-series historian for cross platform data storage and whole-building data analytics for performance-based analysis and advanced notification systems comparing trended operational data against either historical or simulated context. The session discusses many options for incorporating an IDL, best practices for connecting building technology to the IDL, and ways to consider connecting the IDL to advanced data analytics and visualization platforms. Simulation is the missing link to establish the proper context, utilizing physics-based modeling, to assess and manage building performance over the life of the building. By integrating modeling and simulation with a traditional IDL, building owners have the tools to assess a building’s performance against the design intent for new building or performance potential for existing buildings. An integrated IDL answers the question, “Did I get what I paid for?”

INCLUDED SESSIONS ARE:

General Session 1 of 4 | QuadReal Property Group: A Visionary Real Estate Firm Whose Senior Executives Have Embraced Innovation, Technology and a 21st Century Strategy!
    Time: 8:00 am - 9:30 am    Location: Orange County Convention Center

Every once in a while, a commercial real estate firm emerges that defines a new set of rules rather than follow the old ones. The built environment, by its very nature, needs to change with the times in order to stay relevant and more important, profitable. Historically, we have seen real estate change right before our eyes as recently evidenced by the acceleration that the pandemic has had on the changes to office, retail, industrial and multifamily buildings.

QuadReal Property Group, a Canadian based international real estate organization founded in 2016, has over $67 billion in assets under management, with 1,200+ employee, and is considered one of the most innovative real estate companies not by words but actions. While many firms speak of digital transformation, QuadReal’s senior executives have made it an integral part of their overall strategy.

We will hear from a group of senior executives who will talk about the creation of the digitally influenced strategy, executive leadership buy in and involvement, integration into all business units, assembling the right internal and external teams, and finally, the business success that has resulted from their innovative approach.

The Technology Challenge for Private Debt
Date: 6/15/2022    Time: 4:00 pm - 4:45 pm    Location: Orange County Convention Center
What is arguably the youngest asset class in private markets, private debt is now the third-largest private asset class behind private equity and real estate. It is well poised to continue that growth trajectory as investors seek returns in a low-yield environment. That said, challenges abound: investors are asking for more succinct, clear, and transparent views on risk ratings, ESG metrics, and non-financial information. Managers need more robust systems for their portfolios and ongoing administration for reporting, overall the industry needs more clearly defined data standards and collection methods. Session attendees and expert panelists will discuss these priorities, as well as opportunities where the market can provide technology solutions to enable this rapidly evolving asset class.

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. Beyond hiring a chief digital, transformation or innovation officer solely responsible for driving digital disruption within their organizations, other internal approaches have proven to be very effective. While some companies established cross-departmental teams to foster new ideas, others merely changed the name of existing committees - or turned over the leadership of a previously IT-driven task force to someone on the business side. This extensive session presents organizations who have implemented various innovation programs to discuss their successes and challenges.

PropTech: What are Operators, VCs and Vendor Seeing?
Date: 6/16/2022    Time: 2:15 pm - 3:00 pm    Location: Orange County Convention Center
Billions of dollars, numerous capital sources, thousands of companies, dozens of reports, conferences everywhere, some fact, some fiction and a fair amount of confusion define the times. Friends and family, angel, VC, investment banks, private equity, sovereign funds and real estate companies have all made investments in PropTech looking to disrupt how we design, build, lease, manage, transact and use buildings. Real estate companies are not only bringing financial support to the deal but also their domain experience and the ability to test new solutions in their own environments. This important session includes the real estate Operators, VCs and successful PropTech vendors each weighing in on the status of PropTech for our industry and presents some of the most interesting, new and little-known solutions they’ve come across recently.

PropTech: The Next Big Thing, A Global Perspective
Date: 6/16/2022    Time: 3:15 pm - 4:00 pm    Location: Orange County Convention Center
Although real estate technology has been around for 40+ in the US, there has been a recent global surge of interest in PropTech. An entire segment of the market has engaged with the topic and is driving conversations and change. We are now seeing spectacular innovation from EMEA, Asia, Australia, India and Israel. Most countries have more recently started their journey, while more mature markets are into new iterations of ideas that have spanned decades. Some have made their way across borders and continents while other very compelling, innovative PropTech technologies that probably should have garnered global interest, have not yet been adapted for other geographic areas. In this session, we take a look at the global PropTech industry and focus on some of the most compelling technologies for CRE.

BIM and Digital Twins: Getting Beyond the Hype
Date: 6/15/2022    Time: 1:30 pm - 2:15 pm    Location: Orange County Convention Center
We typically consider BIM as managing the "construction" process; the concept of Digital Twins typically brings to mind post-occupancy real-time data visualization of "operations and maintenance." Digital Twins has become a buzzword for almost any digital representation, but in reality, they are very complex models continually ingesting thousands of data points. It provides a unified platform to visualize and apply analytical tools and controls throughout a building’s full lifecycle. Adoption has been strong in some industries (aviation, mining, transportation) and is progressively gaining traction in the built environment. In this session, we examine actual case studies for the best insights, use cases and optimization opportunities.

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 buildings, the capability and type of Building Operating System (BOS) becomes even more critical.

Smart Portfolios: Intelligent Buildings at Scale
Date: 6/16/2022    Time: 2:15 pm - 3:00 pm    Location: Orange County Convention Center
The complexity of an intelligent building is increased substantially when multiple projects are combined to create an integrated network of building systems. A portfolio of such buildings requires an even greater level of technical coordination and strategy. The value proposition of a smart portfolio is high as at-scale operations typically result in reduced expenses, higher revenues, and elevated tenant satisfaction. This session highlights the best smart building portfolios, presenting the technical, financial and organizational alignment requirements to achieve the most successful at-scale implementation.

Given the complexity (and lack) of a regulatory framework, developing a meaningful Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy is like flying an airplane with just a magnetic compass. Defining and setting a course to meet decarbonization, electrification, net-zero objectives requires a cohesive plan and alignment among internal teams and external stakeholders. ESG encompasses these sustainability measures as well as ethical concerns as global citizens. Companies will need to collect and ingest multiple data streams to track performance, along with the systems to manage and report key metrics. In this crucial session, global industry leaders share their experience and discuss ESG as a value driver for real estate.

ESG Metrics: What’s in Your Toolbox?
Date: 6/15/2022    Time: 4:00 pm - 4:45 pm    Location: Orange County Convention Center
The corporate world has embraced and mainstreamed ESG initiatives. More importantly, investors see the worth in using ESG metrics to calibrate a company’s value, sustainability, and ultimate impact on society. In fact, many companies (despite the pandemic) have benefited economically from being early adopters. In order to actualize ESG targets, companies need to be able to measure, monitor and manage a complex variety of inputs to evaluate and rank their ESG footprint. A number of scorecards and best practices have been developed and are continually evolving. This session examines the digital tools available and how to prioritize and employ them successfully.

Date: 6/15/2022    Time: 11:15 am - 12:00 pm    Location: Orange County Convention Center
Blockchain and cryptocurrency news has been exploding. We’re seeing more use cases pop up in residential and commercial real estate transactions. Some landlords are even taking crypto for rent payments. We’re now seeing opportunities for investors to buy into the US commercial real estate market through fractional, asset-backed tokenized ownership. This has opened up direct investment opportunities in specific existing commercial real estate or development projects which could never have been attainable for most investors and for owners helping bring to literally trillions of dollars of real estate in both the US and globally. In this session, industry leaders discuss and debate the evolving landscape for this new transactional paradigm.

The Metaverse: If, When and How Do We Dip Our Toes, or Jump In?
Date: 6/16/2022    Time: 11:00 am - 11:45 am    Location: Orange County Convention Center
Dubbed the next generation of the internet, the Metaverse can include virtual and augmented reality technologies but do not exclusively have to be accessed via VR or AR devices. A virtual world accessed through digital walls, teleportation units, PCs, game consoles, and phones could also be metaversal. Extending beyond the obvious gaming applications, the Metaverse also translates to a digital economy where users can create, buy and sell goods. Ideally, it's interoperable, allowing you to take virtual consumer items (like cars) from one platform to another. This exciting session assesses the Metaverse in-depth: the hype, the promise and the possible dark side as we explore how it could potentially impact our industry.
