Building Tech Live will be coming to the NEC on 9th to 11th October this year as part of UK Construction Week (UKCW)!
Evolving from last year’s Smart Buildings show and following feedback from visitors and exhibitors, Building Tech Live will cover the very latest technological advancements in IoT (Internet of Things), lighting, automation, security, communication technology and more.
Nathan Garnett, UKCW event director, said: “Building Tech Live is at the heart of our innovation theme this year. What these architectural, communications and connectivity, smart lighting and security technologies offer for commercial and residential fit-outs is mind-blowing.
“This is such a forward-thinking sector, so Building Tech Live is an unmissable event for any electrotechnical expert, developer, architect or interior designer who wants to be up to date on the latest technology and to see exactly how it all works together.”
The Building Tech Live Theatre, supported by Voltimum and ECA, will cover sessions on smart homes, cyber security, fire safety and prevention, and will showcase new examples of the sector’s use of augmented reality, virtual reality and artificial intelligence. Expert speakers will include Professor Prashant Pillai, professor of cyber security at the University of Wolverhampton; Steve Martin, director of technical at ECA; David Williams, head of strategic marketing at Schneider Electric, plus many more.
Linking in with UKCW’s ‘Future of Construction’ theme, the Innovation Trail will feature the latest thinking in products, systems and ideas for the building technology sector with exhibitors including Canon, GEWISS, Kore, My Smart Box, and Okappy.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to attend free CPD sessions covering topics such as BIM and cyber security, while major debates around national and international construction issues will take place on the UKCW Stage. Speakers already confirmed include Phil Wilbraham, expansion programme director at Heathrow; Bridget Rosewell OBE, commissioner at the National Infrastructure Commission; Ben Derbyshire, RIBA president; and Ruth Davidson, National Housing Federation executive director.
