Custom Installer? Then take some keep ahead of the curve and get registered for Smart Buildings 2017…

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.

Expected to attract 35,000 visitors, amongst the broad spectrum of topics covered will be workplace technology, access and security controls, home entertainment systems and the increasingly popular Internet of Things.

Recognising the increasing influence of the smart buildings sector, a number of prominent organisations have announced their support for Smart Buildings 2017, including The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA) and the Building Controls Industry Association (BCIA).

The awards will champion installers who have started this journey, and have demonstrated creativity and excellence on residential and light commercial projects already.

The ceremony will take place at Smart Buildings 2017 on 11th October 2017.

The following award categories are open to nominations:

• Best Installer 2017
• Best Newcomer Installer 2017
• Best Project 2017
• Best Product 2017
• Best Manufacturer 2017
• Best Wholesaler 2017
