Areas of interest

The spaces where we live and where we work, brought together in the concept of smart cities, are already the key focus of innovation and technology for Industry 4.0, and this is only going to increase in the near future. The process of urban drift means that the buildings that make up our towns and cities are the ideal setting for seeing how technology can transform people’s lives. Energy efficiency, sustainability, connectivity, IoT, integration and new forms of entertainment – these are the key words at the Smart Building Expo.


A smart city is one that strives towards sustainability and efficiency through the use of technology. The goal of Smart Building Expo is to present technologies and applications designed to solve problems in the urban environment. Technology is changing the quality of life in cities through the use of high speed connectivity, sensors, platforms for big data analytics and their use, smart lighting, mobility and logistics management – these are just some of the areas that will be represented at the Smart Building Expo.
