Smart Building Leadership Forum

June 12 | 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm | Nashville Music City Center

In the early days, mechanical systems were typically free standing with little or no integration.

Next came systems for smart buildings, focused on the idea of integrating these disparate systems for efficiency and cost savings.

Today, the next generation of smart buildings is open architected, interoperable, integrated and IP-centric. They utilize smart edge devices and the cloud, and have expanded functionality that goes beyond one building to include portfolios and campuses, with a heavy emphasis on IoT.

This Forum gathers individuals and organizations that have been leading the way on this journey. These are the true innovators, early adopters, pioneers, risk takers and market creators who continue to pursue the next iteration of smart buildings and answer to the question, “What’s next?”



Smart Building Leadership: OPEN Forum (Moderated Session)
Date: 6/12/2019    Time: 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm    Location: Room 207C
Paradigm shifts are long, messy, and full of risks and hard work. Smart buildings have been around for 50+ years and in the old days, they called it building automation. Each different system (lights, HVAC, access control and so on) was built by different manufacturers, are not connected, not attached to a common network and certainly, not integrated or interoperable. Visionaries long ago saw a different way and inherently knew that a common network would force our outdated thinking around building automation to evolve. For the second year, we are inviting the indurstry to participate in a moderated Q&A with featured industry thought leaders.
