Controls are top of the agenda
Registration is now open for Building Controls Sandown Park which takes place on 23-24 October 2013.
Building controls are now at the top of the agenda in the building services industry and this was further clarified at last year’s show where a huge variety of different products and services from some of the leading manufacturers in the industry were on show.
From Building Management Systems (BMS) to wireless controls, energy management solutions and simple devices to help people take control of their environment, they were all on show from exhibitors such as t-mac Technologies, Priva Building Intelligence, Trend Control Systems, Gira and KNX.
The two day seminar programme also proved to be a real hit, with visitors queuing up to attend the CPD accredited sessions. The programme focussed on building controls in new-build and retro-fit applications and looked at the challenges which the installation of a building control system can bring in each of these applications as well as the benefits which can be realised.
Some of the highlights included Sean Brook from Trend who addressed the subject of ‘Making your buildings fit for purpose’; Sue Warmington of Sontay who discussed the topic ‘Wireless temperature sensing systems’; and Anders Noren from Priva Building Intelligence who presented ‘Embracing the challenge of the built environment’.
There were numerous other highlights to the exhibition with many exhibitors booking stands for the 2013 show proving that this show remains the place to be for everything you need to know about building controls. But don’t just take our word, here’s what the exhibitors had to say.
Lisa Gingell, t-mac Technologies Ltd: “With our competitors, suppliers and clients all present, 2012’s show provided us with some great leads, including a major UK business who is now a valued client. The seminar content was particularly strong, with contributions covering the challenge of the built environment, controls technology and, of course, an energy management systems briefing from t-mac.”
Stephen Payne, Theben AG: “The 2012 Buildings Controls Show was well organised, with more exhibitors and visitors this year. I got a number of positive leads, which have resulted in new contacts and new business. The show is great value. There is a positive friendly atmosphere among the exhibitors, which the visitors pick up on. The Buildings Control Show is a great showcase for KNX products because it is targeting the right audience. KNX business is growing year on year and interest in KNX is growing accordingly. Theben AG have already booked for the 2013 Building Controls Show and we are looking forward to an even bigger show.”
Stacey Lucas, Sontay: “The Building Controls Show in 2012 was a great success for Sontay. The audience were very well matched to our industry and the show was extremely relevant to us. We participated in the seminar programme and our slot was full which is great exposure for our company.”
Paul Lambert, Field Server Technologies: “The Building Controls Show was our first time exhibiting in Europe. With the great support of the exhibition team we made the most of the opportunity and managed to make a whole range of new contacts I don’t think we could have made otherwise. The show was focused on exactly the right area for us focusing on building automation and efficiency.”
Paul Witherington, WAGO ltd: “Another good show with quality sales leads obtained. This is a specialist controls show where the visitor wants to be there for a specific application or to solve a building control problem.”
Chris Irwin, Distech Controls: “Whilst the attendance at the Building Controls Show 2012 was not as great as we hoped, it is well focussed on the building controls industry and we were kept busy for most of the time. Those who did come were very much the sort of people we hoped to reach. We have re-booked for 2013 and recommend that any specifiers, systems integrators and contractors looking to update their knowledge of what controls are available on the market should come to the show.”
