Exploiting market potential
According to a study of the eco – by the consulting firm Arthur D. Little, EUR 1.3 billion euros were invested in smart home solutions in Germany in 2017. By 2022, sales are expected to increase 26.7 per cent to EUR 4.3 billion. Most of this (30.2 per cent) will be in energy management followed by applications for lighting and window control (27.9 per cent) and security technology and access controls (18.6 per cent). Get Nord will pick up this trend and offer an overview of future-oriented building system solutions and innovative smart building technologies in Halls B4 and B5.
The IT Forum and Planning Forum will focus on future issues for construction such as the significance of Building Information Modelling (BIM) for architecture and trade, demands on the cyber security of smart building solutions and how these affect building operations. The forums at Get Nord offer trade, industry, commerce, planners and architects an opportunity to proactively shape digital change together and to enter into dialogue with one another.
