The 2016 North American CoreNet Global Summit took place at the Philadelphia Convention Center from October 16 through 19. CEO John Cuppello, currently serving on the CoreNet Board of Directors, journeyed from the UK to join the America’s team during the conference.
Programming consisted of educational sessions both on and off the Innovative Pavilion exhibit space. This event focused on ‘the bigger picture’ as it relates to geopolitics, economics and the environment. Case studies were presented by businesses like Capital One, Johnson & Johnson and the United States Air Force about their own experiences in corporate real estate. CBRE presented their findings from their Global Occupier Survey as it relates to: balancing local actions amid global economic uncertainty; implementing employee-centric workplace strategies; and supporting rapid enterprise transformation while strategically managing costs.
Qube Global Software was represented by Matthew Sheldrick, Sharon Miller Trackman and Kevin Anderson throughout the four day event. All were available to address various concerns voiced by corporate real estate executives as it relates to technology in general, address free workspace, and the latest anticipated changes coming from FASB and IASB.
As the exhibit hall was nearing its close, Sharon collected generous amounts of unused wrapped candies and snacks from the other service providers on the trade show floor. In addition to the four large tote bags filled with goodies, Qube Global Software added another 25 pounds of candy, all of which was donated to Safe Harbor of Chester County in West Chester, Pennsylvania. “Just in time for Halloween, the homeless shelter was thrilled with this act of kindness,” states Sharon. “It feels good to give back when and where we can.”
