The Business Case For A Smart Building?

Smart buildings promise to enhance the wellbeing of occupants, create more personalized experiences, deliver more sophisticated energy management and maximize space utilization. But what’s the business case?

This presentation will draw on recent Verdantix research studies to analyse the business case for smart buildings. In this session, we will consider the role for IoT technologies, facilities optimization software, artificial intelligence, smart equipment, workplace apps, and other technologies.

Real estate investors, property developers, facilities managers, product manufacturers and technology vendors should attend this session to get an independent perspective into the value pools for smart buildings.
