The first UK consumer show to showcase the latest digital home solutions.

Press Release


SMART HOME SHOW / 14TH - 17TH APRIL 2005/ NEC, BIRMINGHAM

Centaur Exhibitions is pleased to announce the launch of The Smart Home Show - the first UK consumer show to showcase the latest digital home solutions. The Smart Home Show will bring together the best intelligent technological solutions and products on the market, and will attract the many thousands of people who are eager to be at the forefront of innovation.

The smart home, with its integrated entertainment, technology and automation, is finally becoming an affordable reality. With demand from consumers growing fast, this market is set to explode in the next few years, but there is at present no independent place for consumers to discover what is available and within their budget, and most importantly where to buy it. The UK desperately needs a consumer exhibition to act as a catalyst for this massive burgeoning market.

The Smart Home Show will be co -located with Centaur`s highly successful and established National Homebuilding & Renovating Show, which attracted 45,576 visitors in 2004. Visitors to this show will be free to go across to The Smart Home Show without charge. A survey of visitors to the 2004 exhibition revealed that 53% would be interested in visiting The Smart Home Show.

The Smart Home Show will have its own entrance and a dedicated marketing and PR campaign designed to attract thousands of unique visitors who are early adopters with a high disposable income. The tens of thousands of visitors who cross over from the National Homebuilding & Renovating Show will just be the icing on the cake.


Nick Noble, Group Event Director at Centaur Exhibitions, comments "The Smart Home Show will help to educate and inspire thousands of consumers and will lead to a very significant boost in business for the manufacturers and installers who exhibit."
