Technology has come a long way in the past decade. The huge leaps forward in wireless communications in particular have paved the way for what we’ve come to know as ‘Smart’ spaces, with wifi, 4G, Bluetooth, and RFID enabling processes that we’d have written off as sci-fi not too long ago.
We love supporting exciting events that take place in our home city of Birmingham, which is why we’re so pleased to be sponsoring TEDxBrum – a day-long event that provides a platform for some of today’s most inspired thinkers.
Vanti are one of the UK’s leading proponents of Smart building, so we often talk to people about the huge benefits integrated technology can bring to organisations and individuals.

We are incredibly pleased to announce that Vanti have been selected as one of the inaugural Innovation 50! The index has been collated by top UK law firm Mills & Reeve LLP, and was created to celebrate and promote the region’s 50 most innovative companies across a range of sectors.

Further to our original post below, we’re incredibly pleased to announce that Raj won the Future Face of Innovation award! We had a fantastic evening at Edgbaston Stadium, and it was great to see Raj’s hard work recognised by the panel of judges.

We noticed a frequent occurrence in education construction and refurbishment projects whereby performance, drama and dance spaces were difficult to finish due to the coordination between the many trades needed to deliver power, network connectivity, equipment installation, configuration and training.
