While smaller than in the past by design, the event will still deliver the most comprehensive education program for the industry, including over 50 education sessions, 100+ speakers, an expo hall featuring 75 exhibitors and sponsors, our annual pre-conference events and the smart buildings showcase.

Realcomm is the premier industry event focused on automated business solutions and state-of-the-art enterprise technologies for the commercial and corporate real estate industry. IBcon is recognized as the world’s leading event on the next generation of smart, connected, high-performance, net-zero, sustainable, intelligent buildings.

The last 18 months have accelerated the adoption of technology and taught us that remote work and virtual meetings are here to stay. But it has also highlighted the importance of in-person gatherings and being connected to a community. Face-to-face meetings are an important part of satisfying a deep human need for interaction and relationship building.

So, while most all the commercial and corporate real estate industry meetings and conventions took a pause in 2020 due to the pandemic, Realcomm didn’t stop working to ensure that when the time was right to return to in-person meetings, we’d be ready. Our industry, more than any other, needs to be REsilient given the current state of the world.
