The Smart Building Conference may be coming to a city near you in autumn 2014 after co-organisers, InfoComm and CEDIA, announced that the event will run from three different locations across Europe, with content tailored to each country’s regional market.
London, Berlin and Milan are all scheduled to receive visits from the Smart Building Conference in 2014 before it returns home to Amsterdam in 2015 to collocate with ISE for a third consecutive year.
“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,” commented Mike Blackman, managing director, Integrated Systems Events.
“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.”
According to organisers, content for the Smart Building Conference 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.
The full SBC schedule and venue listing is as follows:
- Tuesday 7 October 2014 – Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, London
- Thursday 6 November 2014 – Mövenpick Hotel, Berlin
- Tuesday 18 November 2014 – nhow Hotel, Milan
- Monday 9 February 2015 – RAI, Amsterdam
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.
