A joint venture by InfoComm International and CEDIA, the Smart Building Conference (SBC) programme now offers four events spread across London, Berlin, Milan and Amsterdam. The plan is to engage with some of Europe’s most energetic markets for AV technology and systems integration.
The conferences are organised by Integrated Systems Events, the company responsible for the ISE trade show, and will look to engage each national audience as closely as possible being conducted in English, German and Italian according to venue. As in previous years, the Amsterdam programme will be conducted in English.
The London, Berlin and Amsterdam events will both feature parallel tracks for residential and commercial building applications, with the first two also offering the option of full-day workshops at additional cost – the day after the SBC in London, the day before in Berlin.
The Milan event takes place in the same week as the SIEC industry gathering at which both CEDIA and InfoComm are expected to offer additional industry training and networking opportunities.
The full programme offers: Tuesday October 7, 2014 – Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, London; Thursday November 6, 2014 – Mövenpick Hotel, Berlin; Tuesday November 18, 2014 – nhow Hotel, Milan; Monday February 9, 2015 – RAI, Amsterdam.
Some highlights from the London event include a key note speach from Architect, Paul Fletcher, principal at built environment consultants, through…, who will present Smart Building Myths: The Architect’s View, looking at behavioural economics combined with building physics and architecture.
The rest of the day consists of panel discussions and presentations taking in residential and commercial install issues to equip attendees with the knowledge needed to move their business forward in the competitive and ever changing smart building sector.
New for 2014, ‘The Integrator’ Workshop is coming to London on Wednesday October 8, the day after the Smart Building Conference.
The event is designed for those looking to start or grow a business in smart buildings/smart homes, but don’t know how to get started or what steps to take? This interactive workshop is designed to give a focused, practical insight into the opportunities.
