We’ve come a long way since the first thermostat, elevator and office building came into existence in the 1800s. Now, we have smart buildings that use advanced systems to manage energy use, climate, safety, security, lighting and many other operational functions—and this is only the beginning. To stay ahead, commercial property owners and managers need to fully understand and appreciate what smart building technology can do for you, your tenants and your bottom line. How knowledgeable are you about the latest smart technologies?
Today’s property owners and managers must understand how to integrate new technologies—or risk falling behind in a competitive marketplace. And it’s not just about cost savings—smart building technologies also improve your property’s market competitiveness, attract tenants, increase property value and help achieve corporate sustainability and responsibility goals. Ironically, many commercial real estate professionals cite cost as one of the primary deterrents to implementing these new technologies—even though they’ll return their value over time. There’s one main explanation for this disconnect: a lack of knowledge and familiarity.
BOMA International has committed to assisting CRE pros in understanding and implementing new technologies in their buildings. A recent BOMA survey of owners, managers and CRE vendors from across the industry revealed that only 23% consider themselves ahead of their competition in terms of their involvement in advanced smart building technology. This represents a HUGE opportunity to establish a competitive advantage before the rest of the market catches up.
Now’s the time to learn more about how smart technology can improve your building’s efficiency, cut costs and boost tenant satisfaction. The best place to start is at the BOMA International Annual Conference & Expo, June 24–27, 2017, in Nashville, Tennessee. It’s the most respected annual event for the commercial real estate industry and the leading source of trusted information for today’s smart property managers and owners—and the best place to learn everything you need to know about smart buildings.
Here’s a sneak peek at what’s in store:
