Smart Buildings Show 2019 (Olympia London, 9-10 October) has one of the best smart commercial speaker line ups, with presentations from every sector of the industry.

Day one has a keynote from Darlene Pope, Global Lead, Smart Buildings and Digital Workplace Experience at WeWork who will look at ‘What's Now and What's Next For Smart Buildings’.

Darlene states that, “The definition of smart buildings has changed drastically over the last 5 years -- yet many companies are still stuck with and "old school" focus on building automation and energy management. That's only the tip of the iceberg! Learn how the scope of smart buildings has expanded into the workplace itself, using real time data to drive valuable insights on how space is actually used to drive more efficient space management and employee productivity. With the emergence of IoT, systems and devices can share data instantly in order to maximize operational efficiencies, space utilization, and provide a seamless, technology-driven experience for occupants. Don't miss this session to hear what's now and what's next for smart buildings!”

The other day one keynote is David Williams, Innovation Architect at Microsoft. David will be talking about ‘Shaping the Future of Smart Buildings and Spaces’. He states, “When our team was given the challenge 4 years ago to develop a vision and strategy for what Microsoft could do for the, frankly, archaic buildings industry, we started by identifying what unique values could we bring to our customers…how could we use our technology and desire for digital transformation to empower every person and organization in the industry to achieve more.”
