    SEMINAR SCHEDULE

    A WORD FROM IDIBC PRESIDENT
    9 - 9:30 a.m.
    WHAT'S GOOD FOR PEOPLE? MOVING FROM WELLNESS TO WELL-BEING
    9:30 - 10:30 a.m.| 1 IDCEC hour (HSW)

    Due to looming talent shortages and increased healthcare costs, organizations across the global are concentrating efforts to ensure the sustainability of their most important asset, their people. Unlike other business assets—buildings, technology, investments—people have a choice about for whom they work, how much they give to their job and how they impact the people around them. In a knowledge economy, the knowledge, skills, creativity and connections of its people are an organization’s primary, and oftentimes only, performing assets.Research shows that happy, healthy and engaged employees produce more and cost less. An organization’s workplaces, work processes and work practices comprise an ecosystem that has the potential to enhance employee well-being and thus, organizational performance.

    MARKETING STRATEGIES
    11 a.m. - 12 p.m. | 1 IDCEC hour

    Localized advertising is becoming a valuable part of any marketer’s strategy. While historically advertisers focused most of their spend trying to capture broader audiences, there is now a growing need to make advertising more personal... more localized. Advertisers are shifting their focus to localization due to the growth of mobile and the advancements in location intelligence and insights. Programmatic advertising tools and technology, previously only used for large national buys, have become accessible for advertisers of all sizes who want to effectively scale localized audiences, messages, and budgets in real-time and across channels. In this information-packed presentation, we review how digital strategies enable advertisers to localize ad targeting and content, to deliver performance on campaigns, and to receive deep insights on your audiences. You will come away with a better understanding of what programmatic and geo-fencing technologies are, how they work and why all advertisers should consider allocating marketing spend to this growing trend.

    • How dies this affect my ability to get a building permit?
    • What do I need to know about the documentation (energy statements, lighting power density calculations, ASHRAE checklist, etc.) to successfully complete my building permit application?
    • When do I need to involve an engineer?
