It did not take long for all the top controls manufacturers in the business to sign up for this event. Within two weeks of posting sponsorship opportunities, we filled each one. This has allowed us to build a first-class conference while keeping the registration fees at bargain prices. The two full days of educational programs alone justify the trip to Nashville in October. Along with the presentations, BACnet expo, and BACnet interoperability demonstrations, each attendee will receive a Conference Program and BACnet Reference Guide, conference shirt, and a special gift, along with enjoying breakfast, lunch and two evening receptions.

I am very excited about the conference program, because it is much more than a show schedule. We call it the Conference Program and Reference Guide and it is designed to be a useful tool that you will use year-round. We have created some BACnet notes for you on each session and placed them in the program. We have also compiled some useful BACnet content in the reference section (Contacts, Resources, BACnet Vendor Lists, BTL Listed Products, etc). The program is included in your registration fee, so enjoy!

Our new website, www.BACnetConference.org, has been getting a lot of hits and contains all the information regarding the conference, the agenda, how to register and book rooms at the Nashville Marriott Airport hotel at the discounted conference rate, what to do in Nashville and all the latest news about the conference.

The agenda is finalized and we are inviting some of the most famous names in BACnet to present the material, including BACnet Committee Chairmen, Bill Swan. The conference will take you from 0 to 100 in just a few days without overwhelming. The content is to be presented using everyday terms, and the breakout track lets you choose between “BACnet Basics” and “Advanced BACnet Simplified.” This is truly a conference for end-users, consultants and integrators and not a developer’s conference. The use of “jargon, bits and bites” will be minimized and related to practical day-to-day applications.

The conference will start and finish with the state of BACnet. We will first outline where BACnet stands today and finish with where BACnet is headed in the future. The common thread throughout the whole event is the freedom that BACnet offers as an ISO-standard open protocol.

I hope that you join us in Nashville from October 23-25 to see for yourself why BACnet is providing end-users with “more freedom than ever.”
