Why you should attend

Analysts in Europe predict investments in smart cities worldwide to hit an all time high. The international twin conferences on building automation will address the two particularly high-growth areas. From 26 to 27 September 2019, the Frankfurt Airport will be dedicated to BACnet© applications in City Centers and Cyber Security.

Conference Features

Double business opportunities

Benefit from the twin conference by exploring new areas and meeting new stakeholders. The synchronization of the lecture programs allows you to switch between the two conferences. The synchronization of the breaks allows you to meet new people in the exhibition.
