Smart Buildings 2017 – the go-to event for the smart buildings industry – will be held on 10th-12th October 2017 at Birmingham’s NEC, as part of UK Construction Week, providing the most powerful opportunity available for suppliers and contractors to connect face-to-face, under one roof. This year, TV personalities and industry experts George Clarke, Steph McGovern and Tom Dyckhoff will be introducing proceedings as the main presenters across the three days on the UKCW stage and there will be plenty of talking points raised in the Smart Buildings Hub too.
