Smart Building Conference comes to London in October
Agenda will place AV industry at the heart of the UK’s intelligent building debate
LONDON, 31 JULY 2013: Integrated Systems Events is delighted to announce that its Smart Building Conference will come to London on Tuesday 15 October. A joint venture of the company’s not-for-profit association owners, CEDIA and InfoComm International®, the Conference was held for the first time in Amsterdam in January of this year, where it drew a sell-out attendance of over 150 professional delegates.
“After an extensive period of industry consultation, we are convinced that smart buildings represent a fantastic opportunity for the professional AV and electronic systems integration industry,” says Mike Blackman, Managing Director, Integrated Systems Events.
“The ability of AV professionals to integrate the disparate technologies in a building into an efficient, manageable and scalable system is without parallel anywhere in the construction business. We see the Smart Building Conference as the premier forum in which our community can learn about the opportunities that are available to it and how those opportunities can best be exploited.”
While the inaugural Smart Building Conference had an international flavour, the London event is being given a more local focus, with speakers encouraged to present case studies, market-research data and keynote addresses inspired by trends in the UK market. Blackman believes this will make the Conference particularly appealing to InfoComm and CEDIA members in the UK, who will receive generous discounts on delegate pricing.
Another innovation designed to give the Conference maximum audience appeal is that while the programme will begin and end with plenary sessions, the late morning and early afternoon will see parallel tracks for the residential and commercial sectors, allowing delegates to choose the seminars that are most closely linked to their area of business.
Commenting on the event’s content, Blackman says: “The phrase ‘Smart Building’ means a lot of different things to different people. Our job is to bring these various interpretations together so that delegates come away from our Conference with a clear view of the opportunities open to them.
“Topics under discussion will include building automation, energy management, security and access control, IT facilities integration, HVAC and lighting control, and much more. The background of our chosen speakers will reflect this breadth of interest – we want our delegates to hear as diverse a range of opinions and experiences as possible.”
The event will be held at Dexter House, a state-of-the-art conference facility located in the heart of the City of London, and will be MC’d by Bob Snyder, Editor-in-Chief of Channel Media Europe, reprising the role he performed at the widely praised Amsterdam event.
Crestron has already been confirmed as the event’s first Platinum Sponsor. Three tiers of sponsorship are available, and all sponsors will benefit from a 2m x 3m exhibit space on the day, as well as excellent branding and networking opportunities. The range of exhibits on offer will give delegates a broad overview of the technologies that can be integrated together to make tomorrow’s buildings smarter.
Companies interested in sponsoring the London Smart Building Conference should contact Ian Morrish, Sponsorship Sales Manager (email@example.com), while potential speakers are encouraged to email proposals to Dan Goldstein, Director of Marketing & Communications (firstname.lastname@example.org).
