Digital Singapore: Smart Buildings in a Smart Nation

Many Singapore firms are leaders in implementing smart buildings initiatives. As a technologist, what is ‘smart’ to you, and what are your concerns about smart buildings in a modern workplace?

On the macro level, is Singapore meeting its commitments to develop a digital ecosystem and is it making progress in the promotion of smart cities? In this session, we focus on technology that has crossovers in real estate. With a panel of CTO and tech experts in the field, we will discuss how problems can potentially with be solved through smart technology solutions, including IoT, AR/VR and the embracement of digital in work, play, and learn.

Morning Breakout 2a:
Future of Agility: Flexing Real Estate for Talent on Demand

Is coworking a fad or an entrenched part of the workplace culture, now and in the future. Much has been debated and discussed about the potential death of coworking. In this lively session, we will unpack the spectrum of solutions for flexing up/down in times of uncertainty and draw opinions on this flexible workplace concept.

Morning Breakout 2b:
Sustainability and Wellness: Maximising Impact of Green Buildings

Sustainability is undergoing a transition across urban environments and commercial real estate in the world. Originating primarily as an environmental theme, sustainability has continually evolved into concept that encapsulates a full wellness experience inside and outside the workplace.

In this session we will move beyond green building and open a wider dialogue on the changing role of wellness in urban environments and built spaces, focusing on how sustainability now comes to represent a more diverse scope including biophilic design, healthy eating, advanced lighting, indoor air quality and water quality.
