Intelligent Building Europe Partners with KNX UK

Intelligent Building Europe (IBE) is the new UK hub for smart buildings excellence. The show, which is taking place at ExCeL London on 18-20 May 2021, strives to connect those designing and constructing the latest generation of intelligent buildings with the people running them, inviting visitors to share expertise, source solutions and hear from some of the sector’s leaders.

The event is delighted to announce a brand-new partnership with the KNX UK Association. KNX is an established, global secure open building control communications protocol. The international standard that facilitates the integration and programming of a host of products from the hundreds of manufacturers that offer KNX certified controls.


KNX enables full integration of everything from lighting and HVAC to audio visual systems, security systems and energy management. KNX installations are scalable for buildings of any size and the KNX UK Association of integrators, manufacturers and suppliers is an ideal partner for Intelligent Building Europe as it expands its scope in 2021.


Intelligent Building Europe helps visitors embrace the cutting-edge technology transforming the way we use and understand buildings. Future-orientated solutions such as KNX form an important part of this effort.

Chris Edwards, Event Director of IBE said:

“Intelligent Building Europe is dedicated to showcasing the very latest smart building technology to building designers, integrators and operators. Our research into this industry showed very early on that interoperability of systems is a key concern of all groups, so working with KNX UK to demonstrate the benefits of their open system was very appealing to us.“

Iain Gordon, President of KNX UK said:

“The integration that the KNX open system offers can encompass every aspect of building facilities and control. Specialists are going to need to broaden their horizons to succeed in an increasingly integrated world and this is an event that will attract and serve the people who will need to know more.”

IBE 2021 takes place on 18-20 May 2021 at ExCeL London.
