“Each year, the InsideIQ Technical Summit is an opportunity for technical and engineering staff from our member companies to gain relevant technical knowledge they can take back to their jobs and share with their colleagues. More importantly, the event creates networking opportunities to establish relationships and build teams across member companies enabling us to share knowledge throughout the Alliance,” said Mark Balent, president of InsideIQ Building Automation Alliance. “Attendees also have the opportunity to learn from vendors about the latest technical solutions available and even meet one-on-one with manufacturers to ask specific questions about their technology.”
The 63 attendees of the Technical Summit represented 35 InsideIQ member firms, including not only companies from the United States and Canada, but also international InsideIQ members HC RT Controls from The Netherlands and Airmaster Australia based in Melbourne, Australia.
Sessions during the three day Summit provided technical information and insight on important topics for technicians, project engineers and other BAS professionals. Presenters were leading manufacturers of metering technology, sensors, wireless technology, and building automation including: Onicon, Bapi, AIC Wireless, Belimo, Schneider Electric, S4 and Smartware.
