In a play on words I highlight and encourage you to be part of this valuable community event going on in Chattanooga.  The Haystack Connect event is about our automated buildings community chewing over our evolving connection opportunities.

"Chattanooga Choo Choo" is a song by Harry Warren and Mack Gordon. It was recorded as a big-band/swing tune by Glenn Miller and His Orchestra and featured in the 1941 movie "Sun Valley Serenade". Wikipedia   

In this article The "Community" Comes Together to Produce Its Own Event - John Petze, Principal, SkyFoundry provides insight to the event.

How It Came About: Haystack Connect started from discussions between numerous SI's and vendors over the course of 2012 who felt that there was a need for a different type of event focused specifically on the people implementing systems and driving new solutions for facility owners.

The emergence of Haystack Connect as a community-produced event demonstrates a natural progression - with open technologies it becomes the community that drives the industry forward in ways that no single manufacturer or organization can.

The vision is well documented on the web site; 

Technology continues to drive rapid change in smart building technologies, energy management and operational efficiency solutions. The most significant advances are being driven not by a single company, but rather by a community of companies creating open, best of breed technologies that work together through a range of open protocols and software interfaces, including the rapidly growing “Haystack” standard. These new technologies reach the market through a growing group of practitioner communities, each with deep expertise in their own fields.

Customers with the vision to see the ways that these technologies can improve business results are as much a driver of industry progress as the technology companies. And they depend on the value delivered by top-tier systems integrators to combine advanced technologies with the professional services necessary to deliver bottom-line business results.

Haystack Connect 2013 is the event that brings together the systems integrators, technology suppliers and customers who are leading the way to more efficient and sustainable buildings and advanced smart-device applications. Haystack Connect 2013 is THE place for these “communities” to come together to network, share, create synergy and generate new business opportunities.

These sponsors have committed to the event todate.

Watch the agenda evolve online daily until show time.
