Leading IoT company provides insight to attendees at Fort Lauderdale, Florida Event
Trumbull, CT – January 10, 2019 – TMC and Crossfire media today announced Acuity Brands has signed on as a corporate sponsor for IoT Evolution Conference and Expo which is held January 29 – February 1, 2019 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward Country Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Greg Carter, Senior Vice President, Connected Buildings Software at Acuity Brands, Inc., will lead a session on January 31, 2019 at 9:30 a.m. He will present inherent opportunities for IoT ecosystems and for creating value streams for businesses in “Why your Connected Building is a Digital Asset.”
“Technology is undergoing a rapid state of evolution, and the resulting products are reducing in size yet increasing in capabilities. In an ironic twist, your most valuable computing asset can be created from your largest asset – the building,” said Greg Carter. “The breadth and scope of affordable IoT devices has created the ideal soil for the emergence of the connected building. The connected building operates like a system in which sensors and controllable devices work together to mine and parse available data generated real-time from the environment. That data can then be used by employees, guests, patients, shoppers and passengers to optimize and individualize their experiences.”
IoT Evolution is the leading event for education on the technologies, solutions and impact that the IoT will have on the enterprise, smart cities, healthcare and manufacturing. The conference program will take a deep dive into the emerging and growing disciplines of blockchain and edge computing and the impact these technologies will have on advancing AI, industrial and vertical market IoT applications, autonomous vehicles and more. New to this year’s event, each attendee who goes to every session within a single track will receive a 2019 Certification of Specialization.
