(Detroit, Michigan) – Controls-Con, a bi-annual conference proudly presented by Cochrane Supply & Engineering, will educate attendees on the latest technologies and possibilities of Building Controls, Building Automation and the Internet of Things (IoT) at the MotorCity Casino Hotel on May 2nd and 3rd, 2019. 

During this streamlined, power-packed event, contractors, systems integrators, service technicians, facility managers, engineers and more will join an industry-leading speaker lineup to dive into current hot topics and where the industry is heading. After attendees get an initial opportunity to browse the Building Automation Trade Show floor and network during lunch, the impactful 3.5-hour general session will kick off in MotorCity Casino Hotel’s state-of-the-art Sound Board Theater. Here’s a glimpse of what they can expect from this powerful group of keynotes:

Following Jim Young’s speaking portion, all of these speakers will come together on stage to form a moderated panel, allowing for questions and discussion points to come from the audience as well. Once the panel wraps up, attendees will be welcomed to the MotorCity Casino Hotel’s Grand Ballroom for a huge networking reception with nearly 30 trade show booths lined along the room’s perimeter. Vendors will include VYKON by Tridium, Honeywell, Johnson Controls, and Distech Controls, all of which attendees will have the opportunity to meet with one-on-one to help them strategize for the future. 

Controls-Con attendees will then have the opportunity to enjoy a sit-down dinner and watch the 2019 Controls-Con Awards that will recognize winners for Product Hall of Fame, Integrator of the Year, and Industrial IoT Innovation. The excitement will continue with entertainment, more networking, and refreshments for the remainder of the evening.

Enter Day Two, and the Controls-Con spotlighted breakout sessions. Attendees will have the option of choosing between the Business Track (geared towards sales professionals, managers, and executives) or the Technology Track (geared towards programmers and engineers), each taking place from 9am-12pm.

The Business Track will bring in a panel of large end users that are using an IoT framework on a large scale, with discussions focusing on best practices in how they’re implementing it, what they like, what they don’t, and much more. Dive into real-life examples of how IoT is changing the business we work in, and get inspired with new, fresh ideas to grow and differentiate your business. The projects discussed will be unique and varied, as the speakers in this track will stretch across many industry segments. Confirmed speakers include:

The Technology Track will run concurrently and focus on concepts and best practices surrounding the “Integration Lifecycle.” Topics will include Network Planning, N4 System Database, Tag Dictionaries and Hierarchy Planning, Authentications, Virtual Points, N4 Analytics, Responsive Panes, and more! The speakers leading the charge here will be:
