The Las Vegas Digital Innovation Story: The Built Environment @ City Scale!
Date: 6/14/2023    Location: Milano

Realcomm | IBcon is pleased to present Michael Sherwood, the Chief Innovation and Technology Officer for the City of Las Vegas as one of the keynote speakers in this year’s General Session. As the individual at the center of Las Vegas’ innovation strategy, Michael will be sharing a number of projects that are directly in line with the built environment.

Michael has more than 20 years of experience in the fields of process improvement, technology, and innovation. Prior to the city of Las Vegas, he served as the Deputy Director of Public Safety, Business Services & City Technology for the City of Irvine, California. Michael is extremely passionate about technology and believes through innovation, workforce development, and collaboration, we can create brighter and sustainable communities.

Las Vegas is a legendary city known around every corner of the world. Its reputation for entertainment, gambling and fun is unprecedented. Not everyone would consider Las Vegas an innovator as it relates to the built environment, however, just a little research shows how much this city is doing and at an unprecedented pace.

Hotel security systems; advanced building automation; new digital tenants such as e-sports, studios and digital experience venues; a citywide 5G wireless infrastructure project; autonomous transportation; and much more, one could make the argument that Las Vegas is one of the most innovative / digital cities in the country, if not the world.

Stacks+Joules, founded by two intelligent, ambitious and passionate individuals, decided to take this extremely important challenge on. They have created a building automation training program and have reached out to a community that may never have been aware such opportunities existed.

Navigating the Financial Stresses of the CRE Market, Economy and Impact on Innovation
Date: 6/14/2023    Location: Milano

The commercial and corporate real estate market is not immune to market cycles. Throughout modern history, this asset class has had to deal with various scenarios relating to supply and demand, monetary policies including interest rates, shifting regulation and now the impacts of the pandemic including return to work.

To better understand the market’s demand for technology and innovation, it is critical to understand the health of the market and its capacity to invest in new technology and innovation. A quick glance at the news illustrates that there are many different opinions on where the market is. Will it get worse; how bad will it get and for how long? For those in the PropTech space, getting clarity on this issue will help with short, medium and long-term goals.

We are excited to have Spencer Levy present his thoughts on this subject at this year’s General Session on June 14. Spencer is Global Client Strategist and Senior Economic Advisor for CBRE, the largest commercial real estate services firm in the world.

Date: 6/14/2023    Location: Milano

Each year, the Realcomm program team, led by Howard Berger, surveys hundreds of industry professionals to get a gauge on the topics that are of most interest and relevance to the community. The survey, in addition to thousands of conversations with advisors, solution providers, consultants, integrators, real estate owners, operators and managers, as well as corporate occupiers, provides keen insight as to the issues, interests and opportunities of the day.

After the sifting and sorting was complete, we asked our Advisory Council chairs to lend their experience and insight to the process and present the industry’s most pressing topics on Day One of the General Session on June 14 at Caesars Palace.

Each of the six chairs, Sineesh Keshav, Managing Director, CTO, Prologis; Joe Rich, EVP, CIO, Related Companies; Jeannie Schneider, SVP, CTO, Hines; Arv Gupta, SVP, National Operations, Cadillac Fairview; Colette Temmink, Chief Strategy & Product Officer SMS Assist, a Lessen Company; and Charles Whiteley VP, Global Digital Leader, B+P, AECOM, will present one topic they feel needs focus and attention.

Artificial Intelligence in the Built Environment

Realcomm first introduced AI to the real estate industry at Realcomm | IBcon 2016, when a reporter named Cade Metz shared his observation of Korea’s 18-time World Go Champion being defeated by Google’s AI machine, AlphaGo. At the time, the real estate industry wasn’t paying much attention.

Enter ChatGPT. Over the last few months, a global obsession has begun. From dire warnings from its creators to AI-generated art, music and business intelligence, the world is chasing the potential of this new technology. It seems clear AI will have a profound impact on our industry, touching everything from market and portfolio analysis to AI-generated cyber-attacks. This segment will showcase three industry relevant demonstrations of this powerful and somewhat controversial new technology.

Global Technology Competitiveness: The Nation State Battle is Upon Us
Date: 6/15/2023

The United States has long enjoyed a leading competitive advantage when it comes to emerging and critical technologies. The modern technology revolution started in the mid 1960s in Silicon Valley with organizations like Hewlett Packard and Stanford University and has enjoyed being the epicenter of innovation for 60+ years. That began changing over 20 years ago when large nation states began implementing a strategy that would look to unseat the United States as a global leader in technology.

This strategy was formulated on rapid intellectual property theft, aggressive government subsidies and a comprehensive high technology education campaign. Leading experts on the topic speculate that if the current trajectory continues, industries such as Artificial Intelligence, Advanced 5G+ Communications, Quantum Computing and others, could be overtaken by large, non-democratic nation states by 2030 and the results could be disastrous.

Liza Tobin, Senior Director of the Economy for the Special Competitive Studies Project (SCSP), a new organization formed by Eric Schmidt, former China Director for the National Security Council and China specialist for the US Government and Aaron Brown former Army Ranger, CIA senior Operations Officer, and Co-Founder of 2430 Group, a nonprofit and consortium of companies defending the US public and private sectors against foreign economic espionage, will discuss the growing threat to the economy and national security as it relates to the built environment, and the risks of digital tracking and technical surveillance.

Diminishing the Impact of Technology Losses: Defining a "Start-Up Failure Proof" Strategy
Date: 6/14/2023    Time: 5:00 pm - 5:45 pm    Location: Pisa
Despite the growing number of industry start-ups, not all new real estate solution providers ultimately make it. But what should landlords do when they bought into the new technology and maybe even deployed it in their buildings? To recover from a potential start-up failure and keep buildings running as intended, an agile strategy is required that can quickly be adjusted in an event of discontinued technology or software support. In this valuable session, we will explore various case studies including how to successfully avoid building system outages or safety concerns in the event of the loss of a critical building IoT technology which had been integrated into the building network architecture.

For optimum operational efficiency and increased asset value, one must start with the foundation. A common network infrastructure that is fully connected to include all systems is still just a dream for many struggling with disparate, vendor-specific, legacy systems and equipment.

Often, they even have to educate vendors on how their systems will perform on one converged network. This session will assess the challenges in achieving a comprehensive base building network and pinpoint how to leverage current innovations.

Test for Success: De-Risking Smart Building Tech Deployments
Date: 6/14/2023    Time: 5:00 pm - 5:45 pm    Location: Neopolitan III
Many non-tech teams deploy technology with absolute faith that it will solve some pain that they experience in their working day, and often are sold a solution without a very clear understanding of the problem. This leads to cyber risk, increased complexity, lack of measurable results, wasted effort, higher costs and often, failed implementations. So how do you define the use cases, create testing practices that facilitate success and ultimately measure the value of the investment? This panel will discuss the pitfalls of an unstructured approach and highlight the importance of time spent to evaluate and understand the use case to ensure maximized returns.

The Modern Building Operating System (BOS) Stack: OT Software and Hardware Rationalization
Date: 6/15/2023    Time: 12:30 pm - 1:15 pm    Location: Neopolitan III
Once the basic communications layer in a building is established, it's time to address plans for 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 plan the next generation of smart, connected, high-performance buildings, the capability and type of BOS becomes even more critical. This comprehensive session addresses all relevant issues on the topic.

All About the Results: Sensor Data vs. Outcomes
Date: 6/14/2023    Time: 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm    Location: Pisa
Sensors have become omnipresent in the marketplace and we can now affordably get data points on just about anything including air quality, smoke detection, water leaks, space utilization, visitor count, light levels, temperature, humidity, and more. But what do you do with all that data and who makes decisions from that data? The marketplace is now asking the same questions and more directly looking for outcomes. For example, if you are reducing office space you don’t want just occupancy data of your current space, you want to know exactly how much space you need and what the mix of space type should be. This panel will discuss the technology available today and how occupiers can get outcomes and not just data.

Ensuring Complete and Accurate Building Data at Scale
Date: 6/14/2023    Time: 3:15 pm - 3:45 pm    Location: Neopolitan III
Building owners' vision for an improved future around sustainability, efficiency, productivity, occupant wellbeing, and cybersecurity rely directly on trusted data from the digital building space. As decisions become increasingly contingent on systems' up time and data accuracy, it is critical to acknowledge and identify the multiple potential points of failure throughout the end-to-end building data flow for device telemetry. In this session, we will focus on the standardized vocabulary that Google uses for describing data quality issues and validation points throughout the BOS platform. The goal, short of automatically addressing some issues, is for end users interacting with the data to self-sufficiently identify potential data issues and apprise the appropriate team for remediation.

Digital Twins: A Comprehensive Data Strategy for High Performance, Sustainable Buildings
Date: 6/15/2023    Time: 11:30 am - 12:15 pm    Location: Neopolitan III
Digital twins are a digital representation of a physical building with a data overlay providing real-time data on building performance. These complex models ingest thousands of data points on a unified platform to offer visualization and integrated analysis. Planning for digital twins at the concept and design stage of the build process allows for simulations that can assess different scenarios, saving time and construction cost. Throughout the lifecycle, a building’s performance can be measured and modeled against other similar structures, but also against its own potential – for continual commissioning, process improvement and financial optimization. This instructive session will explore the digital twin’s part in overall smart building strategy and share leading-edge case studies.

The New Age of “Open”: Paving the Road for Smart Building Data Interoperability
Date: 6/15/2023    Time: 12:30 pm - 1:15 pm    Location: Neopolitan II
As digital buildings become more widespread, open data standards have arisen in an effort to establish a common framework to improve data quality, and streamline data access for efficiency, flexibility and interoperability. While in the late 1990s and early 2000s much of the Building Automation System industry has coalesced around BACnet, progress towards an open data model for buildings has been more convoluted. But with the rise in popularity of Brick Schema, Project Haystack, RealEstateCore and ASHRAE 223P, the industry now has a solid foundation of open-source semantic models on which to build. Join us for the FIRST EVER live panel bringing together all the major building data standards to discuss how they will underpin future growth in the industry!

Low-Voltage Buildings: The Holy Grail?
Date: 6/14/2023    Time: 4:00 pm - 4:45 pm    Location: Pisa
PoE and digital electricity allow a single twisted pair Ethernet cable to carry both data and electrical power. And with a single low voltage cable, you can power lighting, control it and harvest data on usage. Plus, you can also use it to coordinate with other building systems like HVAC, access control, security, window shades, and more. Although AC is currently the standard, several PoE and digital electricity building projects have proven that a low voltage DC infrastructure is less expensive, easier to install and significantly reduces energy consumption while providing a backbone for your smart building networks. This instructive session will examine the possibilities of delivering PoE and highlight the best performing case studies.

A Data-Driven Approach for Managing Indoor Air Quality: Lessons Learned from K-6 School Programs
Date: 6/15/2023    Time: 11:30 am - 12:15 pm    Location: Pisa
The pandemic triggered owners and operators to increase situational awareness. Now our playbooks for return-to-work and school emphasize Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). Why? Because peer-reviewed research concludes that air direction and airflow patterns play a key role to prevent cross-infection between occupants. They also have cognitive effects on adults and children, such as decreased absenteeism in K-6 students and improved mental clarity, engagement, test scores, and well-being. Advances in IoT sensors, real-time and predictive analytics, and intelligent building management systems enable meaningful KPI monitoring. This results in higher-confidence decision-making for Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ). This interactive session will highlight lessons learned from implementations in elementary schools in North America during and post-pandemic.

Three Years Post Pandemic: How is Big Tech Addressing Occupancy and Utilization Data?
Date: 6/14/2023    Time: 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm    Location: Neopolitan III
The pandemic fundamentally changed this industry: variable show-up rates and evolving employee preferences introduced a level of unpredictability not before seen in commercial real estate. In response to this, utilization data that was once a nice-to-have, has become business critical to real estate planning. But, along with solving for it, new challenges have also come up. In this session we’ll explore: how do the Metas, Salesforces, and Googles of this world address measuring, analyzing and actualizing utilization data, at scale. Why is this such a complex issue? What have we learned over the past few years? What are some of the common practices and strategies across all three companies?

Opportunities in Times of Change: Meeting the Technology Needs of a Distributed Workforce
Date: 6/14/2023    Time: 3:15 pm - 3:45 pm    Location: Sorrento
As new models of work emerge, more companies are embracing the benefits of a distributed workforce with employees working from locations outside a traditional, centralized workplace.

Distributed workforces need to be connected in real time and be able to access corporate resources and tools necessary for successfully completing their tasks. This session reviews modern workplace technologies and agile business systems for managing a distributed workforce.
