Announcing an Important New Industry Event - "Haystack Connect 2013"
SkyFoundry, in cooperation with a number of other leading technology companies, is helping to launch a major new conference event. The new conference -- Haystack Connect -- is designed to connect the companies, communities and people who are redefining smart and connected systems.
The Goal: The goal of Haystack Connect is to create a new type of conference and trade show -- one that is produced by the community, for the community. The creators of the event believe that it will fill an important gap in the market for smart and connected systems by providing a place where these communities can come together to network, share, create synergy and generate new business opportunities.
Background: The building automation, energy, and M2M industries have a variety of events. Many are under the control of a single manufacturer. Some are huge events where the needs of systems integrators, technology vendors and their customers are lost in a sea of unrelated products. A number of us see a need for an event that is not owned by any single supplier, but is "by the community and for the community". Haystack Connect is designed to directly serve the needs of the customers, systems integrators, and technology vendors who are on the leading edge of applying smart devices and smart buildings technology.
Vision: The event supports the vision that a connected community of practitioners, vendors and forward thinking customers can move the industry forward in ways that no single supplier can. As the smart device marketplace has evolved over the past decade, these communities have been a key driver in this forward progress. With Haystack Connect these communities have an event of their own.
Haystack Connect 2013 has chosen to take its inspiration and event name and from the success of the open source community that is addressing the challenges of making smart device data work seamlessly across applications of all types: project-haystack.org.
Strong Support from Sponsors: Even before this first public announcement, 10 sponsors have signed on to produce the event. These are:
• Platinum Sponsors: Daintree Networks, EasyIO, J2

Call to Action: Space is limited to the first 250 attendees and 20 exhibitors for this inaugural event. Be sure to register soon so that you do not miss this important new event.
The event will be held April 29 – May 2 at the Chattanoogan Hotel, Chattanooga, TN. The Haystack Connect event will take the entire hotel and conference center.
