IBcon has grown to become the world’s most comprehensive and leading edge discussion on the next generation of smart, connected, high-performance, green, sustainable, intelligent buildings. This event is not about the traditional one building, one system, one vendor smart building of yesterday, but rather the open architected, interoperable, integrated, IP, IT centric smart buildings of tomorrow.
Smart buildings, portfolios, campuses and cities that strive for energy reduction, operational efficiency, sustainability, enhanced occupant experiences and financial optimization are at the center of the discussion. IBcon brings together visionary experts from around the globe to discuss the latest technologies and present the world’s most advanced, next generation smart building case studies. These projects are no longer just ideas, they are real and are resetting the benchmarks on what a building should look like and how it should be operated.
IBcon 2016 will be held in Silicon Valley, the epicenter of technology and innovation. Our theme, Commercial and Corporate Real Estate Innovation Starts Here, speaks to the region’s history for incubating some of the most successful, visionary companies and entrepreneurs in the world. From the invention of the first transistor, to the PC and Mac, to Internet search, most of the major technologies of today were founded on the achievements of the pioneers in Silicon Valley.
Our close proximity to these successful tech firms is what fueled our decision to host IBcon in the region, allowing us unprecedented access to amazing speakers and visionaries from companies like Intel, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn and more. Many of these global thought leaders have agreed to speak on our education program, covering topics such as: Cybersecurity, Next Generation Workplace Design and Strategy; Comprehensive Corporate Real Estate Information Management Solutions; and Smart, Connected, High Performance, Energy Efficient, Sustainable, and Intelligent Buildings.
Join us for IBcon 2016 and be part of the community that is shaping the future of smart buildings!

The Internet of Drones has Landed | Why Drones Are the Next Internet
Drones are a game changer and hold vast potential for streamlining and reducing the cost of inspection and monitoring tasks associated with reliability and asset performance.
Drone technology has been democratized and it’s now fast, cheap and out of control. It’s like the Internet all over again.
Once the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA’s) rules for using drones commercially are approved, the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International estimates the economic impact of the industry could reach $13.6 billion in the first three years and climb to $82.1 billion by 2025. Part of that impact will be the addition of 103,000 jobs, paying a minimum of $40,000 for those involved in manufacturing the drones, and more for the engineers and operators. Equipped with new capabilities, such as integrated audio and text with real-time video feeds and the ability to overlay images over existing footage through augmented reality, next generation drones could have significant commercial value for businesses across industry segments.
