2 General Sessions - 6 Tracks - 30+ Sessions

Our commitment to delivering a dynamic educational program has helped establish IBcon as a "must attend" industry event. We focus on all aspects of the “Intelligent Building," from automated HVAC, lighting and security, to new components such as digital signage, parking, water management, fire/life safety, access control, command control centers, advanced analytics, grid connectivity and more. The sessions will also focus on the business drivers and the organizational changes required to facilitate the intelligent integration of key business processes into the high performance building ecosystem.

Our extensive education program, with the help of our Advisory community, is designed to give you the business perspective & technology insight you need to positively impact your bottom line!
