Building Services 2012 – the official CIBSE Conference and exhibition will attract building services professionals from across the globe and provide a superior platform for suppliers to showcase their existing products, launch new technological innovations and network with senior delegates and speakers. Welcoming a wide variety of professionals from consultant engineers, architects and property managers to contractors, installers and energy managers, all will be looking to attend to gain valuable information on the latest in building services.
Well if anyone is feeling the effects of an economic downturn it’s the construction industry. This is presumably why they have asked me (amongst a great deal of others) to talk at their conference spanning two days this week. What I can hopefully do is inspire them to look for issues within their industry that can be developed into commercial opportunities. It’s an old trick, spanning back to the times of Edison and his famous line… ‘Discontent is the first necessity of progress’.
What I hope to get from it, is to see how an established industry sector (that we have had little involvement with) showcases the latest developments and what exactly those latest developments are?
I’m walking in as an unknown into the unknown… What could possibly go wrong?
