BTL Mark: Resolve interoperability issues & increase buyer confidence
Content and Quality of Presenters keeps BuilConn 2004 Fresh
Over 90 presenters & content contributors can't be wrong about Convergence! It's unfolding and happening at BuilConn in Dallas. Last year's strong feeling that grew from Anto's hallucinations and budded into the first ever BuilConn has sent vibrations through our industry and has aligned us with new players and industries. Last year's event will be a tough act to follow but it looks like Anto and his crew are set to pull another big one out of their hats. The line-up of content providers and presenters represents almost the majority of the large building automation industry with several new players front and centre. It has been joked; Is their anyone left to attend? I am not worried as the combined power and knowledge of this line up of presenters and content providers is bound to attracted interest from our complete industry as well as a lot of new players. Talking about that this year's event is being co-hosted with the M2MExpo which adds a new but strongly related connection. If you come to BuilConn you get two conferences for the price of one as you can freely move between the two.
