FACT OR FICTION – Making Sense of The RETech, PropTech and CRETech Landscape
Date: 6/13/2019    Location: Schermerhorn Symphony Center
Billions of dollars, numerous capital sources, thousands of companies, dozens of reports, conferences everywhere, some fact, some fiction and a fair amount of confusion define the times. With multiple names to choose from, the RETech | PropTech | CRETech industry, has been in existence for over 40 years. Companies such as Siemens and Honeywell on the smart building side and Yardi and MRI on the Real Estate information management side set the foundation long ago. Since 2009 a tremendous amount of capital has been raised and invested in this newest iteration of PropTech. Angels, VCs, Accelerators, RE Tech Firms and RE Companies are all participating. With all of this increased activity comes a great deal of confusion. This thoughtful and thorough presentation will uncover the fact and fiction of PropTech, and offer advice for navigating the complexity.

INNOVATION @ SCALE – Real Estate Powerhouses Weigh-In
Date: 6/13/2019    Location: Schermerhorn Symphony Center
The Commercial and Corporate Real Estate industry is experiencing one of the biggest periods of change in history. Much of this disruption is coming from the impacts that technology, automation and innovation are having on our business. Process automation, smart buildings and new ways of using space are all changing the way we design, build, lease, operate, transact and use buildings.

It is relatively easy to experiment with a new technology in a single building where the risks and exposure are low, but much more complicated to attempt to innovate at scale. Commercial and Corporate Real Estate represent complex ecosystems. Blueprints, leases, paying rent, parking, security access, maintenance requests and performance reports all contain an inordinate amount of data and process automation. Business requirements for standardization, cybersecurity protocols and privacy issues create additional hurdles to overcome.

On this General Session segment, Zorba Manolopoulos, Global Program Manager, Smart Campuses, Facebook Kevin Danehy, Global Head of Corporate Development, Brookfield Kenneth Finnegan, CIO, Managing Director of Technology, Hudson Yards-Related; and Jared Summers, Digital Foundation Manager, ExxonMobil will discuss Real Estate Innovation @ Scale.

These executives represent some of the most notable and recognizable companies in the world and they are all taking a very aggressive approach to transforming how they manage and use every aspect of their Real Estate operations. This panel of extraordinary professionals will present a good mix of perspectives from both the tenant and landlord side of the relationship, as well as describe their roles in the digital transformation process. As technology reaches through the center of the buildings, into tenant suites and back to the owner’s operating team, establishing future-proof strategies for Real Estate will continue to be challenging.




Facebook, which has changed the way we communicate and socialize digitally with over one billion users globally, is applying their digital prowess to their own corporate campus.











Brookfield, one of the largest Commercial Real Estate owners and operators in the world, is set to use their size to create new benchmarks and accelerate innovation in our industry.









Hudson Yards, which was constructed on 28 acres over an existing rail yard in New York City, is the nation’s largest private development and has set new standards for Innovation @ Scale.










ExxonMobil, one of the largest oil companies in the world with buildings around the globe, is applying an aggressive innovation strategy to its new Spring, TX, HQ and portfolio at large.




Meeting the challenge for changing the Real Estate industry through technology, automation and innovation takes all types of participants - small, medium and large - to start the discussion and then show the way. As the market makers step in and take the discussion to the next level, we see Real Estate Innovation @ Scale bring accelerated industry acceptance and true transformation. This exceptional panel with their various roles and perspectives will set the stage for two days of fast paced, cutting-edge, timely discussions and debates on how we all need to REcalibrate our thinking about the relationship between Technology and Real Estate.

Slow and Steady – AI and the Impact on Real Estate
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm    Location: Room 208A
Artificial Intelligence made its way into public consciousness when Google’s AlphaGo AI group beat Lee Sedol, the Korean Go champion, in March of 2016. While AI had been in the works for a number of years, it was this battle between machine and human in one of the world’s most complex board games that brought attention to the potential of AI. Soon after, Elon Musk and others began to call for an AI Governance body. While the capabilities of the technology are unnerving, its potential for unlocking value of companies’ largely unstructured data is limitless. The Real Estate industry, a market full of large data sets, has been slow to adopt Machine Learning. Tenants, workforces, leases, assets, portfolios as well as markets could all gain a higher level of efficiency with AI. This compelling session will focus on real-life AI case studies as well as emerging opportunities.

REcalibrating Global Benchmarks – A Look into CHINA'S TECHNOLOGY REVOLUTION
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 4:45 pm - 5:45 pm    Location: Room 207A
Not that long ago, China was quietly emerging from the Cultural Revolution. In the last 30 years, China’s stunning growth has been nothing short of extraordinary: from a third world communist country to a global dominant player who is just getting started. Their achievements include construction, economic, technological, military and expanded global influence. With respect to technology, they have developed countrywide systems for e-commerce/retail, communications, surveillance and social behavior scoring that could easily be five to seven years ahead of the rest of the world. This high-level session will provide examples of China’s technological prowess and leave time for a debate as to what it means for the world.

ROBOTS and The Built Environment – From Concepts to Case Studies
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 11:15 am - 11:45 am    Location: Room 206
The conversation on Robots in buildings has been growing over the last four to five years. Early adopters relegated robots to industrial and maintenance applications. While the built environment hasn’t been at the forefront of this technology, we’re seeing increased adoption. Concierge services and marketing are making their debut with Robots (such as Pepper), while other companies are focusing on repetitive manual tasks such as security, exterior maintenance, construction, autonomous delivery, logistics, and floor and window cleaning. This session will present a summary of the ‘State of Robots’ across all industries and will then focus on the case studies being developed by the most innovative thought leaders in Commercial and Corporate Real Estate.

From Applications to Integration – Assessing the VOICE ASSISTANT'S Role in Real Estate
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 1:15 pm - 2:15 pm    Location: Room 206
There are millions of requests each day that involve a specific data set or function within a building. Whether used to obtain financial information, lease statistics or simply to turn on the lights, voice assistants will become more commonplace in the future. Screen requests require a computer or other expensive equipment, while a voice assistant such as Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri can serve an easy to use, relatively inexpensive systems interface. That ease of use also brings up concerns on the backend, a complex mix of tight integrations, rules, cybersecurity concerns and other technical issues. This timely session will bring together the best minds in the Real Estate industry with experience in using automated voice assistants.

Leasing to Operations – Unpacking the Opportunities for AUGMENTED and MIXED REALITY
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm    Location: Room 206
It is easy to understand the potential for virtual and augmented reality in the built environment. For leasing, strap on goggles and see an unfinished space with a modern furniture configuration; for maintenance people, use the headset to bring in an expert while repairing complex equipment. These are just a couple of the ways in which AR/MR can be used to transform our industry. However, AR/MR applications in Real Estate have yet to achieve full speed. Actualization is not a question of if, but when—and this panel of industry AR/MR domain experts will provide a solid level set regarding the opportunities within Real Estate.

Managing the Chaos – How to Effectively Vet and Assess the Multitude of PROPTECH OPPORTUNITIES
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 10:30 am - 11:30 am    Location: Room 207C
With over 3,500 companies to evaluate, just imagine how long it would take to thoroughly understand every solution. At simply an hour per company, which would be considered a light evaluation, it would require almost two years for one person to assess the CREtech solution landscape. To bring order to this chaos, some progressive and forward-thinking organizations put together structured plans and procedures to create a process for identifying and adopting innovative technologies. Establishing leadership, creating a budget and developing a cross-functional team are just some of the facets of standardizing the innovation process. For those responsible for digital transformation within their organization, the insight from these industry leaders will be invaluable.

INCLUDED SESSIONS ARE:

Setting the Foundation – Developing a Comprehensive Enterprise DATA STRATEGY
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 11:30 am - 12:30 pm    Location: Room 207A
There has always been a great deal of data generated within a Real Estate organization. Financial, tenant, leasing, market, operational and many other forms of data flows have not only increased in sophistication—but also in volume and frequency. Organizations are now challenged with organizing, normalizing, integrating and analyzing large amounts of data in order to enable the business to make better tactical and strategic decisions. To align with this challenge, companies must now develop comprehensive enterprise data strategies to ensure all data-related processes, from data architecture and model to ongoing governance, are taken into consideration. This essential session will bring together the industry’s most progressive thought leaders who will share their insight on this topic.

API and DATA INTEGRATION – A Discussion on Industry Best Practices
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm    Location: Room 207A
Data comes from a variety of sources (both internal and external) and having solid data integration and API strategies are a must for CRE organizations. Regardless of the existing enterprise application architecture, there are now countless external applications that could be beneficially integrated into the existing stack. With SOAP and RESTful APIs we can now tie together literally thousands of solutions to gain new insights into the data, as well as better automate existing processes. This session will bring to light all the issues associated with data integration within a Commercial Real Estate organization. Data repositories, vendor API and data policies, internal governance, ongoing maintenance, cybersecurity, and emerging issues such as AI and Machine Learning will all be addressed.

Building a Modern DATA SCIENCE TEAM – Where Does Your Company Stand?
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm    Location: Room 203
Real Estate companies have had data analysts for a long time. These are the folks responsible for organizing and sifting through data looking for important issues, patterns and trends. While much of the work has been done on spreadsheet-type tools, the team members—while often fairly knowledgeable about Commercial Real Estate—rarely have the technical skills of what people are now calling a Data Scientist. Understanding new, very sophisticated technical tools, learning how to analyze ever-growing and complex data sets, knowing when to bring in outside data sources—and continuing to ask business questions (whether they seem relevant or not) are just some of the issues to be addressed. Where does your company stand on the topic of data science?

Looking for Business Impact – Uncovering the Best DATA USE CASES
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 4:45 pm - 5:45 pm    Location: Room 208A
The goal of leveraging the data found within a Real Estate organization for valuable insights is not new. It was named different things over the years including analytics and business intelligence. Now, with the introduction of AI and Machine Learning, it is called data science. While the technology has evolved from spreadsheets to more complex platforms, the goals have not changed: provide actionable insights that result in measurable business success. Whether the data predicts a market collapse, helps improve hiring practices, suggests a shift in product demand, improves the supply chain, or simply provides insights into asset or portfolio performance, the correct information could be worth millions. This valuable session will highlight case studies of Real Estate Companies who have discovered how to leverage data.

While data collection has been an integral part of our industry for a long time, emerging technologies and new companies are taking the conversation to the next level.

Real Estate companies have built custom solutions to meet very specific needs; taken CRM platforms and modified them; and utilized market platforms to radically streamline the lease drafting, negotiating and abstracting processes by using structured data to enable context-aware document automation.

BUSINESS PROCESS Rethink – Squeezing the Air Out of Traditional Workflows
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm    Location: Room 205B
Raw components of business processes can be found in file cabinets, forms, emails, software platforms, spreadsheets, documents and a wide variety of other forms of communications. While most companies are forced to rethink a process as they consider a new automation solution, it is a rare occasion that a strategic end-to-end overhaul is completed. It is important to look not only at the steps within a micro process, but also all the processes as they relate to each other. This macro perspective will result in maximum efficiency and in some cases eliminate outdated methods. This important session will focus on effective strategies for designing a comprehensive business process evaluation.

Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 1:15 pm - 2:15 pm    Location: Room 205B
No one would argue that accurate budgets, cost appraisals and forecasts are proof of valuation. The financial skills involved in operating a Real Estate asset or portfolio determine the industry’s winners and losers. Long gone are the days of isolated static estimates; we are entering the era of complex, integrated, real-time and predictive forecasting. New approaches, including corporate performance planning, continue to reshape this important real estate process. Panelists will present state-of-the-art, leading edge approaches, providing optimum perspective on current best practices.

Streamlining Redundant Tasks – A Focus on ROBOTIC PROCESS AUTOMATION (RPA)
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm    Location: Room 205B
Entering data into a form, paying invoices, creating comprehensive reports from various systems and gathering market data are just some of the thousands of redundant tasks that occur within Real Estate companies every day. Moving data from one electronic environment to another is a common and expensive part of everyday business. Over the last three to five years, RPA has taken the concept of ‘macros’ to another level. Sophisticated RPA platforms allow for custom programming of data capture, application access, data input, and a host of other rules and instructions. This session will review the various platforms available in the market, identify the Real Estate processes fit for RPA and review best practice case studies.

The concept of coworking or shared, flexible space has been around for a long time, but it has really caught traction in the past five years with the influence of organizations such as WeWork and Convene. While we are familiar with shared space options emerging from dedicated providers, we are also seeing owners getting into the game, including hospitality and retail sectors. Adjusting to the changing environment, building owners are seizing opportunities in the coworking world as well. Whether it is to meet the needs of tenants looking to expand or densify, owners are increasingly offering flex space options.

Shorter Term, Higher Velocity Leases – A New Type of AUTOMATION PLATFORM Is Required
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 1:15 pm - 2:15 pm    Location: Room 209A
Long-term leases, once the only option to lease commercial space, are seeing a move toward shorter, more flexible terms. Along with the need to show local and regional space availability, there are a host of additional digital features that contribute to the flex space experience. Locate a city, zero in on a building, check for available desks, hit submit and you’re ready to work. The process is becoming so seamless that some compare it to Uber. Additionally, functions that automate the amenity booking process, as well as safety and security are all making their way into the digital strategy. Finally, billing and expense tracking for this new type of short-term lease are prompting everyone to rethink the traditional leasing process. Anyone involved in flex space automation issues will not want to miss this session.

GDPR, CCPA and More – A Connected World Accelerates the PRIVACY Discussion

As the world continues to embrace the idea of smart, intelligent, high-performance buildings, this concept of hyper-connectivity is a double-edged sword. While IoT promises all the benefits of energy savings, operational efficiency, enhanced occupant experience and financial optimization, it comes with the consequence of privacy infringement. GDPR in Europe and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) have real implications for ways building owners and operators will need to manage the data from their building systems. Every camera, microphone and sensor now has the potential to be hacked, creating an environment of overreaching surveillance. When that happens, how will employees and shareholders react? What privacy rights are at stake? Who is liable? Which laws have jurisdiction? All these topics are up for discussion in this crucial session.

Cybersecurity BOOT CAMP – The Steps to Developing a Comprehensive Cyber Program
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 1:15 pm - 2:15 pm    Location: Room 207C
For those just now being introduced to the concept of smart, connected buildings, the topic of building cybersecurity may also be new. The dilemma of a building being hacked and business disrupted is a growing concern in the Real Estate community. One of the biggest misconceptions is that only the newest buildings are at risk and that older building automation systems are less likely to be breached. Nothing could be further from the truth. Whether it is an old, hidden DSL modem, or just the overall lack of sound, secure password protocols, the risks are real. This Cybersecurity Bootcamp will be taught by the industry’s most experienced and forward-thinking smart building cybersecurity professionals. Anyone in the beginning stages of attempting to digitally secure a building will not want to miss this terrific session.

While not every organization has the luxury of being able to hire a CISO, it is critical to have some type of comprehensive cyber strategy.

Beyond hiring a chief digital, transformation or innovation officer solely responsible for driving digital disruption within their organizations, other internal approaches have proven to be very effective.

From Hype to Reality – DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION and Commercial Real Estate
Date: 6/13/2019    Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm    Location: Room 207B
Digital transformation is a phrase that has become over used. While many are quick to extol the virtues of DT, there remains some confusion as to what it actually means. Is it simply taking the filing cabinets and re-engineering the processes within into digitized, automated sequences? Or does it have more far-reaching implications? With the advent of mobile technologies and the cloud, it becomes easier to engage employees, tenants, suppliers and everyone involved in the Real Estate ecosystem. In some cases, this transformation calls for a total rethink of business goals and objectives. This enlightening session will focus on the definition of digital transformation and examples of those leading the way.

Then came budget and forecasting, valuation, lease process automation, internal company communications, CRMs, websites, marketing, analytics and more. We then moved to connecting the building and all of its components and are now touching the tenants with mobile experience applications. All of these must now positively impact corporate performance in measurable ways. In a few short years, the entire commercial real estate information ecosystem has expanded and is looking to be integrated. This vital session will gather the best and brightest to discuss what a state-of-the-art Enterprise Architecture Strategy looks like.

All eyes are on View The Space's (VTS) company Founder and CEO, Nick Romito. With the speed at which his venture has reached market share in 14 major US cities, one can safely conclude that the online-leasing evolution has begun. Using the latest CRE technology and a video platform, brokers and potential tenants alike can now tour thousands of vacant spaces from their desktop, tablet or smartphone and share them with their colleagues, clients, etc. The outcomes of these “shares/view” are also trackable, supplying streamlined, accountable results to all involved in the leasing process. Previously, he was a Managing Director at Titan Global Advisors where he spearheaded the tenant-rep and agency side of the brokerage division, bolstering its business development platform.

21st Century Real Estate Executive Communications – The DIGITAL WAR ROOM Takes Hold
Date: 6/14/2019    Time: 10:30 am - 11:30 am    Location: Room 203
Conference rooms, screens, mobile devices, binders and note pads pretty much describe today’s typical meetings. While taking advantage of some of the digital tools available, meetings have not changed much over the years. Enter the era of the Digital War Room. This new idea brings together the most advanced technology tools, as well as human resources to assist in the transformation. Imagine a room with large high-resolution digital walls surrounding a conference table. As people speak, analysts bring high impact data to the screen to support the discussion. Maps, photos, data, research and the morning news all help to enable faster, better informed decisions. This is the vision for the future of data-driven strategic planning and decision making. Those leading the way with this highly innovative idea will share their experiences.
