Realcomm | IBcon has been presenting the Commercial Real Estate Digital Innovation "Digie" Awards since 1999 to recognize outstanding companies, real estate projects, technologies and the next generation of smart, connected, high-performance, intelligent building systems. The Digies are also awarded to the individuals who have gone "above and beyond" to positively impact our industry and to the innovators who are improving our buildings, portfolios and cities through the application of technology, automation and innovation.

Today, we are living in unprecedented times. For the commercial and corporate real estate industry, COVID-19 created a new set of unique challenges ranging from developing work at home strategies to making sure buildings are performing at the most optimum, healthy levels. As building owners and tenants respond to the pandemic, innovative solutions are required for safe re-occupancy and productive work environments. In a very short amount of time, a multitude of technologies focused on making buildings as COVID safe as possible have quickly entered the market.
