Smart Building Integrator Summit (SBIS)

June 13 | 1:30pm-6:00pm | SD Marriott Hotel

To begin automating a building, all roads lead to a systems integrator. In most cases, the integrator is the organization that will align the solutions found in the industry 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. SBIS will address all those issues impacting today’s smart building integrator, including defining the next generation Master Systems Integrator, the impact of the IoT, providing integrated, interoperable solutions and more.

In its second year, the Higher Education Smart Campus Summit is quickly becoming a must attend pre-conference event for colleges and universities. College campuses have many moving parts, and in many cases, resemble small cities. The opportunity to automate many aspects of the campus lends itself to a comprehensive strategy. Because these organizations control their assets, they are in some cases able to move more efficiently through a smart campus project. A group of industry thought leaders in this space will address topics such as wide area building networks, building operating system selection, IP-enablement of traditional analog devices, developing a strategy and more.
