With focus on best practice and delegate experience the Smart Building Conference (SBC) is to expand significantly in the coming months. The conference is a joint venture of InfoComm International and CEDIA. Conference organiser Integrated Systems Events, the company responsible for the globally acclaimed ISE trade show, has announced a schedule that will see the SBC stop off in London, Berlin and Milan this coming autumn, before returning to Amsterdam for ISE 2015 next February.
“After successfully staging SBC events at the last two ISE shows and in London last October, we believe the time is right to roll out the Smart Building Conference brand across Europe“, Mike Blackman, Managing Director, Integrated Systems Events, comments. „Our strategy will be for our three events this autumn to have local content tailored to each country’s regional market, while next year’s Amsterdam SBC will serve as the brand’s international meeting point.”
All three Smart Buliding Conference events so far will be moderated by Bob Snyder, Editor-in-Chief of Channel Media Europe.
The full SBC schedule and venue listing:
- 7 October 2014 – London: Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre
- 6 November 2014 – Berlin: Mövenpick Hotel
- 18 November 2014 – Milan: nhow Hotel
- 9 February 2015 – Amsterdam: RAI
Balckmann continues: “In all cases, the Smart Building Conference will focus on content of the highest quality and integrity, with best-practice presentations and panel discussions giving delegates the insight they need to make the most of the intelligent building revolution.“
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.
“Our venues have been carefully selected to offer a comfortable, businesslike environment in which speakers, partners, sponsors and delegates alike can enjoy networking and the exchange of information. With our joint-venture owners CEDIA and InfoComm International both contributing their expertise to the programme in all four of our locations, we are confident that the Smart Building Conference brand is set for a year of substantial growth“, Blackmann adds.
The content for the SBC events in London, Berlin and Milan is being produced in close consultation with local partners in each country, while Conference proceedings in the three cities will be conducted in English, German and Italian, respectively. As in previous years, the Amsterdam programme will be conducted in English.
