SMARTBUILDINGS Virtual is the forum for all those involved in the future of work and smart technologies. Shining a spotlight on 22Bishopsgate, delegates will hear leading international thinkers from industry and academia on the latest in smart innovation.

Through inter-disciplinary perspectives, we focus on bringing cutting edge ideas and inspiration to the workplace community. Instead of focusing on peer to peer innovation through imitation, we aim to curate a unique programme, bringing together experts in the fields of people, place and technology and relevant adjacencies to reflect on the future of work and workplace.
