  • IFMA FAcility Fusion 2017 at Caesar's Palace 3570 South Las Vegas Boulevard Las Vegas, NV, 89109 United States (map)

We need to change the question we are asking ourselves from “What is the Role of Real Estate today?” to “What Should be the Role of RE in the future.” This is a time when we are beginning to experiment and utilize some of the most advanced technologies ever created which are already disrupting our world. This session, led by the editors of the IFMA Foundations’s 2016 book, Work on the Move 2, will be an exploration into the future to help us envision how we can work smarter and more effectively by experimenting and deploying new technologies like artifical Intelligence/ machine learning, IWMS 5.0, robotics, the Internet of Things (IoT), 3D printing, BIM and drones as we blur the boundaries of the digital and physical worlds. The presenters will utilize methodologies from both future thinking and design thinking, as well as Gartner’s Business Moments, to structure this evocative conversation.
