London gets smart at 2014 Building Conference

The Smart Building Conference returns to London this year on the 7th October at the QEII Conference Centre in Westminster.

The Smart Building Conference attracted over 150 attendees at this year’s ISE in Amsterdam. As a result, London will open its doors to technology manufacturers, designers, consultants and suppliers to host the popular Smart Building Conference, which will repeat its successful twin-track formula of split residential and commercial paths.

Matt Dodd, CEDIA representative, will stand in as moderator for the ‘Residential Track’. These sessions will begin with CEDIA Chairman and Managing Director of Konnectiv Technology Ltd, Kris Hogg, discussing “The developed and the simple approach to smart home technology”. This will then be followed by Daniel Knight, Technical Director of CEDIA member company Fibaro UK, who will look into “Top Trends in Home Automation.” A panel discussion will follow a ‘Live Case Study: Across the Amazon, the many paths through the smart home jungle’ with Founder Director of Face to Face Digital, Will Brocklebank. The afternoon session includes a presentation on “Connected UK Homes” from Jeremy Peterson, General Manager at Honeywell EMEA.

The event will provide delegates with key insights needed to meet their smart building business and design objectives. Visitors will have the opportunity to attend talks by a number of industry experts, network with other smart-building professionals and the chance to participate in panel discussions, including “Smart Drivers for Smart Homes and Smart Buildings,” “How to Differentiate in Residential Integration”, “The Future of Home and Building Control” and “The Internet of Things around Smart Buildings.”

Brand new for 2014, the Smart Building Conference will give visitors the chance to take part in ‘The Integrator’ workshop on 8 October. Open to all individuals with an interest in working as an Integrator within the Smart Building Industry, this full-day workshop provides a practical insight into the opportunities, challenges, strategies and skills involved in smart home integration and building.
