About Us

The Second Event in our Virtual Series will be held on July 22nd and 23rd and powered by OnGo, the CBRS Alliance and free to enter. We intend to build on the huge success we experienced at our first, groundbreaking event in April that featured panels, exhibitor booths, expert chats, keynotes and active chat rooms. If you are a real estate person and are looking to learn all about your connectivity choices, cybersecurity needs, new SaaS models and IoT device opportunities you will want to join us for this event. If you are looking to hear from real estate leaders exactly what they are looking for in the post Covid era we will provide that too. Connected Real Estate and our parent Fifth Gen Media have become known for bringing the best minds from both worlds (real estate and communications) together to express their ideas and needs.

  • Describing creative funding vehicles that can convert up-front capital expense into managed operating expense
  • Exposing common planning mistakes that will keep the contractors and inspectors coming back – disturbing your tenants and creating unnecessary cost
  • Properly planning for next gen technologies your tenants want – like CBRS and 5G
