2. Take advantage of networking opportunities

The most valuable event takeaways often come from conversations with people you meet. Kick off Wednesday with a Networking Cocktail Reception and check out the Smart Building Showcase and Continental Breakfast the following day. Don’t forget to bring business cards so you can keep the conversation going long after the event concludes. Share insights from the conference and connect with others by following Realcomm on Twitter and using #Coretech2018 when tweeting.

3. Don’t miss the Real Estate Innovation Tours

Open exclusively to Corporate Real Estate and Facilities professionals attending CoRE Tech 2018, the Real Estate Innovation Tours give unparalleled access into the offices of the most forward-thinking companies in Silicon Valley. Tours take place the mornings of Wednesday, November 14 and Friday, November 16 and a separate fee applies. Space is extremely limited, reserve your spot now!

4. Discover smart building solutions

If you’re looking for your next smart building solution, look no further than CoRE Tech’s Expo, open during the Networking Cocktail Reception on Wednesday, November 14 and the lunch on Thursday, November 15. Explore the latest CRE products and services and find your next technology service provider as you connect with other building professionals in attendance. Be sure to ask the right questions, to gain an apples-to-apples comparison of how different vendors serve different aspects of building management. Here’s a free e-book to help inspire your Q&A.

As a more intimate and focused conference than Realcomm’s IBCon, you have more opportunity to make quality connections with peers facing similar challenges. With these tips in mind, just two days out of the office will improve your building operations all year long.
