Join an elite group of leaders in cities, buildings and technology who will convene at
VERGE Salon:
Next -Gen Buildings and Cities


This conference will examine the latest approaches and emerging technologies that will make buildings and cities more sustainable and resilient.

This conference will explore the opportunities being unlocked by the convergence of data streams, smart grids, intelligent building systems and more, fostering a dialogue of crucial ideas for shaping tomorrow's buildings and cities. In addition to the boundless promise that new technologies and practices offer, this conference will examine the inherent costs and challenges posed by a social and industry-wide major paradigm shift.

Speakers and panelists will be featured from the White House, the Rockefeller Foundation, Microsoft Corporation, Google, IBM, JLL and private sector developers and practitioners. In addition, distinguished leaders from state and local government will share their experiences with implementing and managing the tectonic shifts in urban networks that are already underway.

If you are looking to understand the trends and technologies transforming the future of our buildings and cities, and the impact of these changes upon the practices of real estate and land use planning, you need to attend this event.

Among the topics to be covered:
  • Climate Change: better understand the nexus between buildings, cities and the environment
  • Green infrastructure: technologies and grid solutions that create value for buildings and cities
  • Leveraging data: to accelerate greenhouse gas reductions and water efficiency
  • Maximizing value: the economics of smart buildings on cities
