Building on the success of their second Smart Buildings Innovation Summit Europe 2019 event, independent research firm Verdantix will host its third event, and inaugural North American summit, focused on smart building technologies for the real estate and facilities management sector, which will take place in New York on May 19.

The Smart Building Technologies Summit North America 2020, will gather over 100 real estate, facilities management and technology executives to discuss how they most effectively utilise innovative technologies to optimise workplaces and improve the value of their buildings. Topics covered by the 2020 Verdantix Smart Building Technologies Summit will include:
What digitisation means for Heads of Real Estate and FM
Where is Proptech going

“Our research shows that spending on Smart Building software will grow significantly to $7 billion over the coming years, as customers demand more sophisticated software tools” said Verdantix Principal Analyst, Susan Clarke. “With North America set to lead spending on real estate software, this event will be vital to executives in the industry to learn from corporate real estate and facilities leaders from across multiple industries and give them the knowledge they need to successfully implement technologies that deliver value to their business.”
The summit venue, WeWork NYC Broad St, is conveniently located in the heart of New York city. Many of the world’s leading real estate technology vendors will be in attendance on the day, including Platinum sponsor Horizant, Gold sponsors Tango and SpaceIQ, and Silver sponsors Pointguard and Spacewell.
