Realcomm | IBcon has been presenting the Commercial Real Estate Digital Innovation (Digie) Awards since 1999 to recognize outstanding companies, real estate projects, technologies and the next generation of smart, connected, high-performance, intelligent building systems. The Digies are also awarded to the individuals who have gone "above and beyond" to positively impact our industry and to the innovators who are improving our buildings, portfolios and cities through the application of technology, automation and innovation.

In 2012, we created separate award categories for Realcomm and IBcon to more clearly address the difference between automating real estate business processes and creating intelligent building systems, buildings, portfolios and cities.

IBcon has grown to become the world's most comprehensive and leading-edge discussion on the next generation of smart, connected, high-performance, green, sustainable, intelligent buildings. This event is not about the traditional one building, one system, one vendor smart building of yesterday, but rather the open architected, interoperable, integrated, IP, IT centric smart buildings of tomorrow. For this reason, we recognize those who are leading the charge in shaping the future of smart buildings.

IBcon Julie Devine Digital Impact Award

It takes vision, determination, tenacity and commitment to keep this industry moving in the right direction. This award is designed to acknowledge those individuals who saw things ahead of their associates, had the courage to leave the mainstream and the tenacity to keep standing up after many failed attempts.


This year, we are adding the Realcomm Rising Star Award. This award will focus on professionals who are beginning to make a significant impact to our industry through the use of technology.
