Next SH&BA Retailers & Manufacturers Panel 23rd May 2017


Following the very successful and insightful SH&BA Retailers and Manufacturers Panel on the 15th November 2016 (see above), the next panel meeting covering wider themes will be held on the 23rd of May at the IET Savoy Place London WC2R 0BL, from 10.30am to 3.30pm.

As previously, the panel will exchange information which is valuable to growth of the smart home category. In this group we welcome those who are directly involved in the selling and retailing of smart home products and services – retailers, distributors and manufacturers. The chair of the Retail & Manufacturing panel is Adam Simon, and any questions about the event can be addressed directly to him at

Three topics will be addressed:

  • Steve Moore, Director of Connected Home at DixonsCarphone, will give insight into their recent JV with SSE – what does this mean for smart home?
  • Theunis Scheepers, Principal Business Development Manager for Alexa Voice Service, will present the opportunities for using the Echo and Alexa Skills for building healthy living solutions in the home
  • A representative of the DIY industry will present on how DIY is growing the smart home category
  • And our hosts, the IET, will give a brief input on “The business case for distributed DC (Direct Current) in the Smart Home”.


Priority for bookings will be given to members of the SH&BA until 6th April. The cost of attending the meeting is £100 (but free for SH&BA members). Those interested in becoming members are encouraged to sign up before the new rates come into effect on 6th April. Applications can be made online at

In order to permit the informal exchange of views and information which is fundamental to this panel, the number of attendees will be limited to 60 people, so if you are interested, please REGISTER soon. SH&BA Members will be informed of the “Promotional” discount code for free registrations.
