BuilConn Event Hosts Large BACnet Presence

Boston, MA - In an unprecedented show of community support, a wide variety of BACnet organizations will be on hand at the upcoming BuilConn Forum 2004, hosted at the Adam’s Mark Hotel in Dallas, TX from April 13-16, 2004. Not only will its leadership and various members represent the BACnet organization, but also taking part in the forum will be the BACnet Manufacturers Association (BMA) and the BACnet Interest Group North America (BIG-NA).

Representing all levels of the industry, from manufacturing to end-users, the BACnet community’s support of the annual event demonstrates the commitment and the leadership that the group is taking in the market for Open Systems.

“Developing, marketing and using Open Systems are the goals of ALL of the various BACnet organizations,” said Jim Lee, President of Cimetrics and President of the BACnet Manufacturers Association. “This impressive showing of our community at the BuilConn event just proves that Open Systems are a collaborative effort, requiring input and support from all the tiers of the industry.”

In addition to the overall presence at the upcoming Dallas event, the BACnet community will also be taking part in the optional programming at the expo: The Building Systems Boot Camp and the Building Systems Master Class. The BACnet Presentation at the Boot Camp will provide basic information on the BACnet protocol including architectural background information as well as a basic understanding on designing and implementing BACnet-based systems. The Master Class session will be dedicated to workshops where the industry leaders and experienced BACnet users will address how they have dealt with the most frequently encountered issues and their solutions to common obstacles.

The BACnet Manufacturers Association (BMA) is an organization that encourages the successful use of BACnet in building automation and control systems through interoperability testing, educational programs and promotional activities. BMA membership is open and includes companies involved in the design, manufacturing, installation, commissioning and maintenance of control equipment that uses BACnet for communication.
