WHY ATTEND NEXUSCON 2024

Education First
In-depth education on best processes and shortcomings, not fluff stories. Grounded in real-world examples/use cases that are relevant to the majority of the market. Grounded in the reality of how things can actually get done within operational constraints and challenges. Education balanced between cutting-edge innovation and proven tech. Balanced between featuring one tech in-depth and featuring the ecosystem.
Community-driven, buyer-led, no-sales culture
Our 600 Pro and Buyer Community members will lead the way in choosing educational topics using an open, transparent process. Education first focused on knowledge transfer between buyers and other buyers, and between buyers and sellers. Inclusivity centered around expert-focused and beginner-focused tracks; diverse speaker lineup.
Connecting innovative vendors with ready buyers
No expo floor, but instead a simple, no-fuss space for Nexus Marketplace Partners to set up shop and conduct demos and conversations. Each learning session room will feature demos (from a buyer/seller team) sprinkled throughout the agenda, showcasing the latest innovations. Structured and unstructured networking will create serendipitous collisions between all attendees.

Message from James Dice,
Founder and CEO of Nexus Labs

Nexus Labs exists to accelerate the transition to digital and decarbonized buildings.

We’ve been convening the changemakers of the smart buildings industry for 4 years. In 2024, it's time to finally meet up in person—at the very first Nexus Summit.

Yet our first conference is more than just a meetup for our online community. The smart buildings industry deserves a different conference.

Less than 30% of the Nexus community is satisfied with existing conference options. Buyers want to learn more. They tell us that pay-to-play content hurts the educational experience, plus there's not enough expert-level content. Vendors say the same thing—plus they wish they met more interested buyers.

This is an industry that lags behind most others in terms of technology adoption. It's also an industry that needs to rapidly decarbonize. It's time for a conference reflecting the urgency required to break through the stale status quo.

We know how difficult it is to plan an event. We have lots of respect for the other conference organizers. BUT, it feels like we gotta try to shake things up.

Join us?

OUR VISION

1

Evaluation

A smaller conference (250 people) where all attendees are very engaged and passionate; not a conference where you multitask.

2

Selection

Buyers, Sellers, and Consultants coming together to create an experience that moves things forward for the whole marketplace.

3

Planning

Education is combined with guided, small-group discussions to actually tackle the issues in the marketplace holding things back.

4

Implementation

Real-world, honest case studies are balanced with cutting-edge innovations.

5

Support

The educational sessions are built around two themes (see below), and every session needs to build on them in some way.

6

Support

The conference content will assume a minimum level of competency. There’s also a special beginner track for those folks who identify as beginners.

7

Support

Three main tracks—pick your room based on your role and stay in it for all the educational sessions and breakout discussions.

8

Support

Marketplace room—get non-salesy demos and ask questions to 35 top vendors that span the marketplace.

9

Support

Fun and enjoyable vibes with good food and coffee. A focus on building connection through shared experiences including small group hikes and assigned dinner pods.

2024 THEMES

All of our education and collaboration will reinforce and build on one or both of our themes for this conference.

Theme 1: The Real ROI
We'll dive into the business case for smart buildings tech from many different angles and perspectives.

Theme 2: The Digitization<>Decarbonization Nexus
Nexus has always been about knocking down silos. This conference will focus on narrowing the chasm between decarbonization efforts and digitization efforts within real estate organizations.

ATTENDEES

Who You'll Meet

Operations, engineering, facility management, sustainability and energy management, ESG, and heads of innovation.
Vetted Vendors
