SH&BA (SMART HOMES & BUILDINGS ASSOCIATION)
We are the knowledge base for smart buildings and people who live and work in them. We strive to be a venue where people and businesses can present their systems, devices, products and services and explain how they work and their value. Base in London we have been active since 2000.
We are passionate about bringing together every element of the smart home industry from Retailers to Manufacturers to Distributors to talk about the hot topics of the day and the challenges we face as an industry. Solution-driven we keenly discuss at our regular pannels how previous challenges have been solved and share our experiences and successes.
This year we joined forces with two of Europes major Smart Home associations in Germany and France. Our goal is to drive deployments and meet growing consumer demand across Europe. The partnership agreement was signed in the Smart Home pavilion of IFA in Berlin on 4th September 2017.
With the long-awaited launch of Google Home in the UK and the acclaimed Amazon Echo garnering plaudits across Europe, the region is waking up to the possibilities offered by newly connected home systems.
In fact, the Smart Home M2M market in Western Europe has been predicted to grow at a CAGR of nearly 50% over the period 2015-2019.
In response, the Smart Homes & Buildings Association (SH&BA), Germany’s SmartHome Initiative Deutschland e.V. (SHD) and the Fédération Française de Domotique (FFD) have formed a European committee to better coordinate joint activities.
