Owners of Surrey-based landed estates and farms are invited to a seminar to learn how they can increase their revenue from smart buildings and embrace the digital revolution

The event will take place on 19 April 2017 from 5pm-7.30pm at Myrtles Courtyard in Seale.

The seminar, organised by the CLA - which represents landowners, farmers and rural businesses - will involve a number of experts talking about the potential impact of smart buildings and agri-tech as well as the opportunities available for landed estate and farm owners.

Speakers include David Savage, Partner at Charles Russell Speechlys in Guildford who will talk about the legal implications relating to smart buildings. David will also reveal finding from Charles Russell Speechlys’ latest research which shows that smart buildings are expected to open up new revenue streams and deliver business gains.

The CLA’s senior business and economics advisors, Charles Trotman, will also provide an update.

Robin Edwards, CLA South East Regional Director comments: “As the UK prepares for Brexit, one of the key objectives for rural businesses is the development of a new Food, Farming and Environment Policy that supports a productive farming and forestry sector. Investment in research, knowledge transfer and innovation has a vital role to play in making this a reality.”
