“There is an abundance of new technology at our disposal – they are crucial to help us achieve net zero carbon and improve building safety.

“Just one small change in a process can completely transform the way a business operates and its outcomes, and we want to open doors to innovative solutions that will better serve companies, end users, and the environment.

“That’s why we’ll be showcasing some of the best products and innovators out there.”
