Tomorrow’s commercial buildings will be safe, comfortable, efficient and smart. But how do ordinary buildings turn into smart buildings? And how will we live and work in a smart city? What possibilities and opportunities for optimally protecting people, property and the environment will holistic solutions deliver?
Inspiration, dialog & networking
These and other fascinating questions will be illuminated by building experts from Bosch, joined by futurologists and customers, in a unique event series titled “Connected Buildings – turning ideas into reality”. It will take place on five dates in the fall of 2018 at an equal number of venues across Europe. Milan will lead the way, followed by Zurich, Amsterdam, Vienna and Berlin.
Each top-class event will address technical and commercial decision-makers from various industries who wish to derive inspiration from solutions for enhancing the safety, comfort and efficiency of commercial buildings and seek an opportunity to network and share information and ideas with other leaders and experts.
The interconnectivity of technical devices via the Internet of Things (IoT) will result in greater interlinking of various aspects of technical infrastructure
Opportunities & possibilities through IoT
The growing interconnectivity of technical devices via the Internet of Things (IoT) will result in greater interlinking of various aspects of technical infrastructure than is still the case today. New functions and services will appear for improving, accelerating or automating processes. Integrated, networked solutions that merge state-of-the-art technology with services will enhance processes across domains and generate benefits for owners, operators, personnel and users.
As an enabler of networked building solutions, Bosch is already tapping the potential of the IoT and leveraging its many years of experience as a system integrator to make people’s everyday lives safer, more comfortable and more efficient and ultimately protect both property and the environment more effectively. Participants in the “Connected Buildings” events can therefore look forward to thought-provoking topics, presentations and discussions in an exclusive setting.
Bosch expert insights
The speed with which digitisation is driving change and the importance of taking action now will be insightfully described by prominent futurologists at all of the events. They include Michael Carl, Director, Research & Consulting of 2bAhead ThinkTanks, the Dutch trend researcher Richard Van Hooijdonk and the world renowned futurist Vito Di Bari. Bosch experts will also talk about smart cities and pragmatically explain how the Internet of Things is already transforming life in cities. Together with customers, Bosch will provide exclusive glimpses of regional lighthouse projects where networked building solutions are becoming reality. Among them: the Nove project in Munich and Prime Tower in Zurich.
Apart from the events themselves, attendees can look forward to exciting and inspiring locations that provide very appropriate backdrops for the topics addressed.
