Austin, Texas, June 2, 2020 – Accruent, the world’s leading provider of solutions for the built environment, will be hosting its annual international customer conference, Insights 2020, as a virtual event for the first time in order to deliver valuable and timely content to its users and other smart buildings professionals without requiring them to travel during the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. The two-day event, taking place June 9-10, 2020, will deliver industry information, product updates and training opportunities for Accruent customers and other facilities and asset management professionals.
More than 61% of executives surveyed in Deloitte’s 2020 Commercial Real Estate Outlook believe that smart buildings will soon be an equal (40%) or more important (21%) consideration than location as tenants make leasing decisions. In addition, as organizations adapt their facilities and workspaces to more actively combat the spread of pathogens, smart facility capabilities are increasing in importance. As the realization of the impact of smart facilities grows across all markets, Accruent is excited to bring smart building practitioners from a variety of industries and functions together to discuss the future task of managing the built environment as well as present day tools available to facilities professionals.
Insights 2020 International will bring together hundreds of Accruent subject matter experts, customers, partners, and smart building thought leaders virtually for two information-packed days. The event will offer attendees:
- Updates from Accruent executive leadership on market trends, company updates and customer use cases
- A keynote presentation by Chris Moriarty, Director of Insight, Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management, a thought leader and policy expert in the areas of facilities management and workplace effectiveness
- Accruent product training at both introductory and power-user levels
- General and product sessions including eight customer- and partner-led presentations from industry-leading organizations across a wide spectrum of industries
- The opportunity to view sessions live or via video replay to accommodate attendee schedules and time zones
Accruent’s customer base and partner network include highly accomplished organizations that are leading the way in the smart buildings arena using the Accruent platform. Accruent was recently recognized as an internet of things (IoT) market leader by analyst firm Verdantix in its 2019 Green Quadrant IoT Platforms for Smart Buildings and this expertise, alongside a range of customer and partner presentations, will ensure an interesting and thought-provoking agenda over the two days of the Insights 2020 International virtual conference.
