First of all, it’s encouraging that we are starting to talk about post-Covid! The RISE Spotlight digital event series, in its fifth instalment, now looks at smart buildings and their possible role when the pandemic is over.
Tuesday 9 March, at 15:00 the fifth appointment with RISE Spotlight is staged: various experts in the sector discuss “Smart buildings: the way forward”. As we all look towards some normality returning later this year, this month’s discussions will focus on the role of smart solutions in helping buildings to reopen in a safe, Covid-compliant manner. The discussion will delve into the new expectations of buildings that the pandemic has brought – relating to hygiene, social distancing and a sharp increase in remote working – and the solutions that are being deployed to meet them. The event will also present some exciting startups in the smart building space. Representatives of two of these startups – Nikolas Samios, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of PROPTECH1 and Marc Gille-Seperhi, Founder and CEO at Thing Technologies – present short elevator pitches for their companies’ innovations for shaping the future of buildings and cities.
A highlight of every RISE Spotlight is the ‘ISE Reporter Roundtable’ – a lively, in-depth discussion among industry experts. For this edition, the panel include: Angelica Krystle Donati, Head of Business Development, Donati S.p.A. and CEO of Donati Immobiliare Group and Matthew Marson, UK Sector Director – Manufacturing + Technology at Arcadis. Under the moderation of Callum Booth, Writer and Editor at TNW, they discuss how the need to provide healthier, more productive and more engaging environments has changed the importance of certain types of functionality; as well as the challenges involved in selecting, implementing and running integrated building smart solutions.
For the ‘On the Sofa with ISE’ interview, Chris Nouveau, Digital Advisor at Microsoft, talk one-to-one with moderator Callum Booth about digital transformation in the context of smart buildings. In ‘AVIXA Insights’, Sean Wargo, AVIXA’s Senior Director, Market Intelligence, present an overview of smart building technology revenues as highlighted in the association’s IOTA reports.
