Following on from last year’s Smart Buildings show, Building Tech Live will focus on technological advancements and innovation in IoT, lighting, security, automation and communications technology.
Research by AMA suggest sectors including lighting were estimated to be worth £24bn in 2017, mainly down to a rise in the popularity of LED lighting. Further expansion is anticipated in 2018.
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.”
A theatre, with support from ECA and Voltimum will demonstrate products and ideas including those from Canon through to Kore and My Smart Box.
CPD sessions (free to attend) will cover topics such as BIM and cyber security, while major debates around national and international construction issues will take place on the UKCW Stage.
Speakers already confirmed include Phil Wilbraham, expansion programme director at Heathrow; Bridget Rosewell OBE, commissioner at the National Infrastructure Commission; Ben Derbyshire, RIBA president; and Ruth Davidson, National Housing Federation executive director.
