Welcome to our

BACnet Airport Conference

Key topics

  • Independent Building Management Systems

  • Economic and Efficient Operation of Airports

  • New Thinking and Network Technologies

Why you should attend

At airports, BACnet is regarded as a pioneer for investment security and reliable building operation. Fraport AG is building Frankfurt Airport Terminal 3 based on BACnet communication. However, the decision-makers have no neutral sources of information and no independent exchange of experience.

For the first time, the BACnet Interest Group Europe (BIG-EU) offers a conference that addresses the specific requirements for the operation of airports' buildings.

Munich Airport, Germany: specifically BACnet

“We opted for BACnet because, as an open standard, it is perfectfor combining different manufacturers and trades.”

Andreas Exner, Management Systems Technology Service, Munich Airport

Manchester Airport, United Kingdom: savings integrated via BACnet

“We are saving 3,000 MWh annually by more efficient luminaires and automatic controlling functions. The lighting system is integrated in the airport’s building management system and flight control systems via BACnet.”

Andy Garratt, BMS System Engineer, Utilities & Energy, Manchester Airport

Stuttgart Airport, Germany: homogeneous systems

 "When we are considering extensions at Stuttgart Airport, the focus is on automation and, in particular, the homogeneously networked building management system.”

Holm Wagner, Managing Director of Flughafen Stuttgart Energie GmbH and Head of the Facility Management  Center at Stuttgart Airport

BIG-EU Birthday Session: 20 Years of Success

The breakthrough of BACnet in Europe began with the multi-vendor project in the German Reichstag in Berlin. Shortly before this, in 1998, the BACnet Interest Group Europe (BIG-EU) was founded. At the Airport Conference, the association takes stock and presents the success factors of BACnet projects.
