Returning for its ninth edition, ISE’s Smart Building Conference is on course to be the biggest to date, with more than 400 attendees expected to hear from more than 30 expert speakers.
Taking place on Monday 4 February, the day before ISE 2019 begins, the conference has the theme ‘Making Buildings Smart, Making Smart Buildings’ – emphasising that smart technology is not just a consideration for those involved in constructing new buildings, it can also be retrofitted into existing offices, commercial premises and homes.
Among the keynote speakers will be award-winning architect Aryanour Djalali, CEO of world-famous DNA Barcelona Architects, and Michael L Schneider, creative technology director – hardware for collaborative design giant Gensler.
As in previous years, the conference will feature dedicated commercial and residential tracks. The residential track will feature the CEO of Robert Bosch Smart Home GmbH, Gabriel Wetzel, talking about ‘The Digital Smart Home’. Additionally, Matthias Strobbe from IMEC Research Group, will share ideas from its IDLab at Ghent University and its HomeLab; a ‘control’ house that allows the study of new home technology in a realistic end-user setting. Delegates will also get to hear about the world’s first blockchain-enabled smart speaker.
Also speaking will be experts such as Peter Coman, InDesign Technologies, Australia; Sean Wargo, senior director, market intelligence, AVIXA; and Roland Hemming, who managed the two largest audio projects in Europe – the London 2012 Olympic Games and the Millennium Dome (O2 Arena). In addition, well-known smart building consultant Joe Aamidor will talk about how blockchain technology fits into smart building.
