Building Tech Forum 2019


What’s next within the building tech industry? On April 4th, 30 companies from all across the industry decided to tackle that question. With 175 attendees, this proved to be another successful year of networking, discussing, and expanding what we all know about building tech. Countless parties helped make this celebration of net positive energy happen. Thank you to Ben Myers and his team at Boston Properties for hosting and helping to organize the event. Thanks also to our additional track sponsors, National Grid, Eversource, and BR+A for moderating and making our education tracks a success, as well as all of our presenters, and the 175 attendees — you all make Building Tech Forum what it is.
