Don’t Get Lost in the IoT Landscape

Aug. 23, 2016
The IoT Emerge event, created by Penton’s IoT Institute, features a track on smart buildings and energy.

The Internet of Things is rapidly exerting its influence over the plumbing, mechanical and HVACR industry. Top execs at Watts Water Technologies told us that they want to turn all of their products into communicating devices. VRF and ductless split manufacturer Samsung announced plans to invest $1.2 billion in the U.S. on IoT over the next four years. Dewalt showed us how they can communicate with the BIM model of a building so that you can accurately place all of the pipe and duct hangers in a building before concrete is poured. Honeywell, Nest Labs, White Rodgers, ecobee and Lux Products have taken deep dives into the smart home market.

How do you try to make sense of the changes in the market as IoT becomes ubiquitous? We have an event that can help, IoT Emerge, created by Penton’s IoT Institute. The event features a smart buildings and energy track.

A core challenge when it comes to Smart Buildings and the Internet of Things is the diversity and complexity of issues, technologies, and strategies that must be addressed in the decision-making process, as well as the need for multiple stakeholders to work closely together. In this session, we’ll present the results of landmark research conducted by BOMA and the IoT Institute across the building ecosystem. The research provides unique insights and actionable information for building owners, managers, and other industry key players on the state of IoT implementation in buildings, challenges and opportunities, and guidance for achieving success in building IoT business cases, strategies, and implementations.

IoT Emerge will be held November 2-4, 2016, at McCormick Place in Chicago. This forward-looking event brings to you 35+ IoT expert speakers, more than 30 sessions, four keynote addresses, three co-located partner events, two days of sessions, one day of tours and one exciting expo floor. Attendees will enjoy two days of sessions, case studies, workshops and more November 2-3, and take the tours on November 4.
