RISE Spotlight – Smart Buildings: The Way Forward

March’s ISE Spotlight had the theme of Smart Buildings: The Way Forward. Participants ranged from seasoned experts to exciting starts-ups as the event explored how building owners and managers are investing in smart technology-driven integrated solutions to develop a safe, post Covid environment in which to welcome back businesses and tenants.

It was produced in association with TNW.

But we begin with more details of ISE’s announcement that this year’s four-day show will be replaced by two-day shows in four European locations across the month of June.

Smart building – facing the challenges of technology and diversity

In this series of interviews with leading experts in ISE technology areas, we’re exploring industry issues including skills, diversity, inclusion and culture.

Raj Patel, Director, Vanti

“Our springboard into smart buildings was Informa at 240 Blackfriars. Various consultants were struggling to realise how to stitch the systems together to realise the client vision. I knew we were the best placed to make this work, so I stuck my neck out and we were promoted to Master System Integrators. As a young team in our 20s, going from AV Integrator to MSI was a significant moment!”

Michael Sherman, Managing Director, HENRI

“There is a clear mentality that helping one another helps the company, and therefore everyone in it. We try our best to create an environment that encourages collaboration.”
