  • 6 Jul 2018

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.”
