Smart Building Integrator Summit (SBIS)

November 1 | 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm | Westin Kierland

To begin automating a truly smart building, all roads lead to the master systems integrator. In most cases, the integrator takes the landlord’s vision and aligns industry solutions on all system levels with the goals and objectives of the landlord and how those buildings will influence the experience of their tenants. As new cloud, IoT and data technologies are emerging at accelerated rates and integrations become increasingly complex, an in-depth knowledge of building systems as well as client business requirements are needed to meet the needs of today’s open architected, interoperable, integrated, IP-centric intelligent buildings, portfolios, campuses and cities.

SBIS is a great opportunity to network with industry peers and learn about new health and wellness standards and COVID technologies to expand on traditional integrator services.
