Call for papers

Smart Buildings Show is the UK’s first free to attend, dedicated commercial smart building exhibition and conference. The 2021 event will be held at ExCeL London on the 6th and 7th October 2021.

Speaking at the event gives you the chance to communicate, educate and make contact with your peers at the UK’s premiere event for smart buildings professionals.

If you would like to be part of the speaker programme, please send in the following information by 12th June and we will then let you know if you have made the initial selection in the following weeks.

Any papers not initially selected will be put on a reserve list. Could you also please indicate which theatre you would like your presentation to be considered for.

For the best chance of being selected we prefer submissions that show best practice, involve the client, partnerships, market information and outlook, plus the latest innovations. We avoid product pitches and ask to see all presentations before the event.

This year we will have four theatres;

Connected - Management

Sponsored by Schneider

This theatre will look at how a smart building is managed, including FM, software, security, sector analysis and market information, integration, data analysis and services.

Connected - Controls

This theatre will look at the physical devices in smart buildings including building controls, energy efficiency, BEMS, sensors, shading and lighting.

Connected - Spaces & Infrastructure

This theatre will focus on workspaces, smart cities, wellbeing, networks, connectivity, power and cabling. Commercial buildings owners and operators are being asked to make their buildings flexible, healthy and productive for their employees. This theatre will look at the management of commercial buildings and how the work environment can affect performance. We will also look at how network infrastructure including networking and power provision can affect and produce a smart building.


This will run a number of CPD accredited presentations. All submissions for this theatre must be CPD accredited and no longer than an hour.
