Smart Buildings Show 2018

Smart Buildings Show closed its doors yesterday with both visitors and exhibitors positive about the two day event.

Attendance for the show was up 45 per cent with visitors coming from all over the UK, and from Europe and beyond.

John Hatcher, conference director, commented, "We had a great exhibition and conference, with the theatres at full capacity for both days. There is clearly a thirst for knowledge in the smart buildings industry and we will be adding an additional theatre next year."

Next year the show will be moving to Olympia, London on 9-10 October 2019 to accommodate the increased footfall and more exhibitors. 

Claire Hatchett, sales manager commented, "We already have a number of stands sold for next year and even more stands on hold. Smart Buildings Show 2019 promises to be an even better event.

A full report of the show will be available next week.

Smart Buildings Show aims to connect visitors to the latest information and technology in the smart buildings industry.

We will give visitors the information they need to arrive at an informed decision on how to make their buildings more economic for owners and more functional for occupiers. Smart Buildings Show will take place at the Barbican, London, Exhibition Hall 2, on 7-8 November 2018.

What is a smart building?

Smart buildings deliver services that make occupants productive at the lowest cost and environmental impact over the building lifecycle. 

To do this requires adding intelligence from the design phase through to the end of the building's useful life. Smart buildings use information technology during operation to connect subsystems, which typically operate independently, so that these systems can share information to optimize total building performance. 

Smart buildings look beyond the building equipment within their four walls. They are connected and responsive and they interact with building operators and occupants to give them new levels of visibility and actionable information.

Smart Buildings Show will cover all key aspects of creating and managing a smart building, including;

  • Building automation systems
  • Energy efficiency
  • Lighting and controls
  • Security
  • HVAC
  • Smart meters and monitoring
  • Networks and wireless
  • Software
  • Services and support
  • Building automation and design
  • Building energy management
  • Regulations and consultancy
