The BAS industry gathers again at AHR 2022 in Las Vegas after two years of wondering what the future of smart buildings will be during and after the pandemic. The anticipation of this annual industry gathering is high to say the least.

For me and many in the industry, the pandemic has been transformational. Amidst the sadness of fatalities and hardships that many have faced, key industry leaders have been using their Zoom time to get through the pandemic and work on a better future for us all.

Here are a number of initiatives and activities that will see the light of day for the first AHR Expo.

Monday Live!

Almost all of the Monday Live! members will be in attendance at AHR. Please seek us out!

The formation of Monday Live! has provided industry leaders with a platform to discuss and further the delivery of smarter buildings.

Monday Live! is an open ecosystem of contributors who exchange information, ideas, approaches, and best practices that help buildings advance to be smarter and enhance their value. The Monday Live! mission is to be a catalyst to identify, discuss and clarify relative topics that help drive buildings to be smarter.
