Redstone to Showcase Latest Smart Building Technology Trends

LONDON, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

One day event brings together market leading technology experts

Redstone will be hosting a customer symposium later this month which brings together some of the UK's leading brands to discuss the latest trends in smart building technologies.

The symposium will take place on the 27th March at the Tower Hotel, London where Redstone will be joined by many of its partners including Anixter, Aruba Networks, CommScope, Extreme Networks, FSI, Redwood Systems, RiT, Tripleplay and Virtua.

In addition to an exhibition showcasing partner technologies, there will a series of breakout sessions throughout the day to discuss the latest trends in BYOD, intelligent building management software, data centre optimisation, intelligent lighting systems and wireless telecoms. Redstone will also deliver a session on the changing face of support and how to adapt in an increasingly connected 24/7 environment.

This symposium is a must attend event for any CIO or IT director. As the day is geared around business value rather than technical topics, the event will also be of interest to facilities managers, consultants, finance directors and CxOS who want to understand how to reduce costs and improve business agility.

Brendan Loughrey, Managing Director of Redstone said: "By gathering together some of the UK's leading experts on this subject all under one roof, it is a great opportunity for attendees to speak to vendors in this space first hand and ask them questions specific to their own business needs.

"Meeting our partners and listening to them present in one of the breakout sessions is an excellent way of gaining an understanding about the latest trends in smart buildings technologies and how they can directly benefit your business."

The symposium this year will end with a guest speaker: best-selling author James Kerr who wrote "Legacy: What the All Blacks can teach us about the business of life". James will speak about his book and how the tricks and tactics of the New Zealand rugby team can lead to success in business.

The symposium will be followed with a drinks reception at 4:30pm.

This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators.
