The BACnet Forum will be held in London on 13 April, endorsing the message of safe engineering and the first of its kind in the UK for 10 years.
The event is being held to satisfy growing demand for information on this subject, the organiser states.
Presentations will be given by experts such as Bill Swan, building standards initiatives leader of Alerton/Honeywell (US), Klaus Waechter, CEN TC 247 expert for open system data transmission, BSRIA global market research specialist Jeremy Towler and others.
The forum is CIBSE-certified and also includes an exhibition of BACnet knowledge, products and services.
According to BSRIA open protocol is used in only 21 percent of the installations in the UK. This is a low coverage compared to other European countries and it is expected that this will grow swiftly as BACnet products are launched by major manufacturers.
Attending the BACnet Forum London is free of charge.
