Facilities Integrate 2019: Open for business

 

Are you ready for a net zero carbon future? The New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC) in conjunction with Enviro-Mark Solutions havebeen developing a framework and set of standards to help shift buildings to net zero carbon. This set of standards will be launched as part of World Green Building Week 2019 at Facilities Integrate 2019. 

 

The only dedicated expo for the convergence of the building and technology industries are officially open for registrations and with many other pressing topics, it’s an opportunity for those in the related industries to learn, network and experience.

 

With over 100 exhibitors, multiple seminars and features, Facilities Integrate 2019 is expected to draw some 3,000 quality delegates. That makes it the premier opportunity for business development, investigating new suppliers and rubbing shoulders with the who’s who of a booming industry.

 

Trade-only, Facilities Integrate 2019 is in its 5thedition and uniquely brings together the people who manage, secure, develop, design, influence and revolutionise New Zealand’s buildings and facilities into a single business event. This year Facilities Integrate is being run by top trade show event manager Lorraine Smith who is breathing new life into the event to engage and educate visiting delegates.

 

“I’m thrilled to announce that registrations are now open, with Facilities Integrate free to attend for anyone with an interest in the building and related technology industries,” says Smith. “We’ve been working hard over the past year, putting together a compelling show which has more than a little something for everyone.”

 

Among the new developments Smith is pioneering include the ‘Drone Zone’, showcasing the many ways in which these devices can aid building management while driving down costs.

 

She also introduces a focus on Workspace Interiors for the first time, which showcases ergonomics in the modern age. The Energy Management Workshop is demonstrating best practices for reducing operational costs and environmental footprints. This is particularly relevant as more building owners are seeing the value of a NABERSNZ and Green Star Performance star rating.

 

Facilities Integrate 2019 features ICT Infrastructure, Facilities Management, System Integration, Workspace Interiors and Operational Technology. The top exhibitors in each category are:

 

  • ICT Infrastructure: BICSI South Pacific, Vertiv, Alternate Backup Solutions, Cover Communications and Sharp Corporation. 
  • Facilities Management: Caroma, Siemens, Gallagher, Panasonic, Temperzone and Total Utilities Management Group
  • System Integration: ABB New Zealand, Leading Solutions, Quasar Systems, Integrated Control Technology and Hills Ltd.
  • Workspace Interiors: Ambius Indoor Plantscaping, Camfil, Dyson, Hire Plants and Nespresso Professional
  • Operational Technology: Good Measure, SimPRO, FSI APAC and Ticked Off.

 

The always-popular seminar series has multiple fascinating topics for 2019, including:

  • An examination of NZ’s slow adoption of Building Information Modelling
  • The dangers of occupying a building without a CCC
  • What the Industrial IoT means for your building
  • Cyber security insights from a Former British Military Intelligence Agent
  • Electric vehicles and the implications for infrastructure and energy management.

 

Regular features which return include the hugely popular Tech Hub, the Spotless Seminar Series which shares best practices in facilities management, and the Networking Lounge where people catch up for some leisure time. Quality food and drink are, assured, as is a convivial setting.

 

“Did we say you can fly a drone? It’s absolutely true,” says Smith.

That’s because the show will feature an interactive drone zone where delegates can get a hands-on experience with the latest technology.

 

Along with some of the industry’s other latest technology, this is expected to be a big drawcard for the best Facilities Integrate yet. “And, once again, all this and more is completely free for pre-registrations of those involved in the building, facilities management and related technology industries,” Smith concludes.

 

The trade-only event takes place 25 - 26 September 2019 at the ASB Showgrounds in Auckland. 

 

Attendance is free for all registrations prior to midnight 23 September. Tickets for those registering after this date are priced at $25. All pre-registrations go in the draw to win a Panasonic Premium 4K Smart TV worth $2,299.99.
