Smart Buildings Show is the UK’s first free to attend, dedicated commercial smart building exhibition and conference. The 2021 event will be held at ExCeL, London on the 6th and 7th October 2021.

Speaking at the event gives you the chance to communicate, educate and make contact with your peers at the UK’s premiere event for smart buildings professionals. This year’s event will be the first opportunity to discuss smart buildings and infrastructure since the global pandemic.

This year we will have four theatres;

Connected - Management - Sponsored by Schneider

This theatre will look at how a smart building is managed, including FM, software, security, sector analysis and market information, integration, data analysis and services. We will also look at how the workplace has changed post-covid.

Connected - Controls - Sponsored by Sauter Automation

This theatre will look at the physical devices in smart buildings including building controls, energy efficiency, BEMS, sensors, shading and lighting.

Connected - Spaces & Infrastructure - Sponsored by Aico/Homelink

This theatre will focus on workspaces, smart cities, wellbeing, networks, connectivity, power and cabling. Commercial buildings owners and operators are being asked to make their buildings flexible, healthy and productive for their employees. The spaces theatre will look at the management of commercial buildings and how the work environment can affect performance. We will also look at how network infrastructure including networking and power provision can affect and produce a smart building.


This will run a number of CPD accredited presentations. All submissions for this theatre must be CPD accredited and no longer than an hour.
