Smart Buildings Show 2018 has proved to be a resounding success with exhibitors and visitors alike praising the event for the breadth of knowledge and content available in the fast growing smart buildings industry.

With an increase in visitors of 45 per cent, the two day event will be located at Olympia, London from 2019, moving slightly forward in the year to October 9th-10th.

William Darby, managing director, Carlo Gavazzi, commented, “The Smart Buildings Show has been a resounding success for both manufacturers and visitors. It’s a great opportunity to meet people wanting to embrace the latest in smart building and energy management technology.”

Rachel Duckworth, Beckhoff, commented, “We had a bigger stand than last year and we were always busy. There was amazing footfall with a good mixture of customers who were good quality.”

Justin Pearce of Belimo told Smart Buildings Magazine, “”It’s been really good, and really busy, with lots of interest.”

The acquisition of Smart Buildings Ltd by ENGIE, was also a big talking point at the show, with both companies exhibiting. CEO of Smart Buildings Ltd, Mark Davenport commented: “Our philosophy is to innovate by leading through IoT technology, and to integrate by normalising every device that can communicate, thereby empowering users to interact and control their worlds. Becoming part of ENGIE will take full advantage of the synergies between our organisations and create many more opportunities to deploy our smart buildings services.”

Rebecca Blackwell, ExcelRedstone, said, “The quality of presentations has been excellent, and we have had a big increase on visitors to our stand.”

Indeed, the three conference theatres were full to capacity over the two days of the show. To reflect this interest, next year will see an additional theatre come on stream at Olympia.

Ram Venkatasubramanian, Schneider Electric, commented, “Engagement has been perfect and we have had lots of conversations with news and old customers. Our focus has been on an integrated approach to smart buildings and there have been huge discussions on workspace utilisation. It has also been a great show for lead generation.”

John Hatcher, conference director, commented, “Smart Buildings Show has surpassed all expectations, and I would like to thank our exhibitors, speakers and visitors in making the event such a success. We are looking forward to making the show bigger and better in 2019 and are very excited in our move from The Barbican, which has been a fantastic launch venue, to Olympia.”

Smart Buildings Show returns on the 9-10 October 2019, at Olympia, London.
