International products and speakers take centre stage at Vision 2017
This year, Vision will showcase the best products and designers from both the UK and around the world. The event will explore the incredible ways in which new and old materials are being used in the construction of buildings. Across two days, a host of projects from across Europe will be presented, with technological innovation at their core.
The exhibitors at Vision cover a range of products, materials and solutions, including research and development into the latest software, bringing together industry leaders to discuss challenges in today’s complex market and ways to deal with changing legislation. The international representatives will bring a broad range of new products in the market place, from intricate glass panels to timber structures.
A carefully curated talks programme will cover the best new ideas and projects from researchers and practitioners. Zaha Hadid Architects will unveil a material that they have borrowed from the fashion industry for use in architecture as part of their Code-Structed Skin project. The Costa Rican rising star Benjamin Garcia Saxe will explain how he marries simple materials with innovative construction methods to create highly sustainable projects in tropical climates. Foster + Partners will demonstrate how engineering and architecture must work in closer partnership to deliver projects that have the potential to make big ideas into a reality.
This year Vision has partnered with various international trade authorities, from countries including Belgium, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Latvia and the Czech Republic. These nations will be represented at the event through a number of pavilions, each housing multiple participants. Live demonstrations and networking will provide opportunities to meet and exchange ideas with our continental counterparts.
Partnering with key professional and cultural organisations – such as the RIBA, BRE, the London Festival of Architecture, New London Architecture and the Museum of Architecture – the exhibition is designed to educate and inspire, with international solutions to local problems. In addition, Vision 2017 will provide a matchmaking service to help facilitate meetings between companies that can work together to create better buildings for the future.
Elliot Gard, Event Director, said: “We are very excited about Vision’s potential to shape the built environment industry by bringing together the biggest names and the brightest talent under one roof. Our aim is to ensure that our exhibitors and visitors can use Vision as their annual meeting place, to exchange ideas and make key connections. This year’s partners will help us extend our reach further across the industry and host talks and events that are relevant to today’s practitioners.”
The free-to-attend exhibition is open for registration and will take place at Olympia from 6-7 June, featuring established companies alongside the brightest start-ups.
