This pre-conference event will be held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio on June 8th from 1:00-6:00pm and will be open to system integrators and consultants from HVAC, IT, AV, Multimedia, Digital Signage, Lighting, Security and Industrial controls who are now ready to go to the next level in intelligent building design and delivery.

The industry is rapidly evolving and technology is driving that transformation. It has evolved from a single building/one system approach to an integrated, interoperable strategy involving not only buildings, but also portfolios, campuses and cities. This rapid change has led to a significant knowledge gap for traditional integrators who aspire to succeed in the burgeoning Smart Building space. There is a need to understand why and how to fill this gap and, further, how facilities services organizations need to adapt to the new market requirements.
Our objective for SBIS is to provide the most globally insightful and relevant educational curriculum focusing on best practices for IT, Analytics, Data Visualization, Cybersecurity, Data Governance, Client Intelligence, Network Design and Legacy System integration (see Facility Operations Automation infographic to the right).

But even MORE important than the information sharing is the opportunity for networking and collaboration with the industry‘s most innovative, forward-thinking peers who understand the importance of ‘getting out in front of the market’.
