04-12-2018 :: The Beacon, Antwerp


Smart Buildings for enhanced user experience
How can IoT optimize comfort, health, safety and security in buildings?

The global market for smart buildings has ballooned over the past decade, reaching $58.1 billion in 2017 and expected to grow to $198 billion by 2025. For the past decade, this investment has been focused on building automation systems that use IoT (Internet of Things) to collect and analyze data from HVAC, security systems and other sources. Maximizing energy efficiency and reducing occupancy costs are good reasons to invest in IoT technology, but the real benefit is in increased building user experience through optimized comfort, safety and health conditions.

This workshop aims at capturing the full value of Facility Management solutions enabled by Internet of Things solutions. Demand and supply side actors are mobilized in a co-creative process to define concrete cases and to initiate action.
