-- As the Smart Building industry continues to rapidly evolve and change, sustainability executives now have an even bigger responsibility to develop business practices that are not damaging to the earth, will respect natural resources and produce results that reflect long-term sustainability. With that comes the challenge to be knowledgeable on the many different components of a sustainability strategy. To help identify the best in class for sustainability objectives and resources, IBcon 2014 will present the Sustainability Executives Smart Building Symposium. This pre-conference event will be held on July 17 from 3pm to 6pm at the Encore at Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas.
"While technology continues to drive change in the smart buildings industry, it also has created a major seismic impact that has resulted in new opportunities and challenges for today's sustainability executives, "said Jim Young, co-founder and CEO of Realcomm/IBcon. "At the heart of it, automation and innovation are perhaps the most powerful tools in reaching sustainability goals, but the complexity and fast changing nature of these systems can sometimes be overwhelming. This Symposium aims to sift through the myriad and sometimes confusing information available to sustainability professionals and help them develop strong sustainability strategies for their organizations."
