The annual Realcomm ׀ IBCon conferences recognize real estate companies, projects, technologies and people for excellence in automation, technical innovation and intelligent building projects.

Outstanding contributors over the past year received Commercial Real Estate Digital Innovation Awards, known as Digies, at the most recent Realcomm ׀ IBCon conferences in Nashville, Tenn. Digies are among the highest recognition available in the commercial real estate industry.
