Building on the success of the EI Live! UK event – now in its 11th year and recognised as the UK’s only national trade show for the industry – EI Live! Europe, from the same stable, was launched to great fanfare recently and has already attracted a dream headline partner for the event. Recognised across Europe as one of the most powerful operators in the market, KNX boasts considerable marketing muscle and influence to help drive the show and make its first outing at the Passenger Terminal in the centre of Amsterdam from 18-19 October a big success.
Hundreds of brands and companies help to build the KNX story, creating smart building products across the areas of lighting, shutter control, security, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, monitoring, alarming, water control, energy management, IoT Solutions, ETS apps, and metering, as well as household appliances and audio.
KNX, in turn, supports KNX installers with a wide range of training programmes delivered via KNX Training Centres. Each KNX certified training centre has adopted the KNX Association’s Certification Scheme for KNX training, offering standardised courses in which installers can obtain the KNX Partner certificate.
As well as promoting the show right across Europe and encouraging KNX manufacturers and installers to attend, KNX will leverage its experience to bring a major training and certification programme to the show, adding huge value to the event.
David Kitchener, Managing Director of All Things Media and EI Live! Show Director, comments, “Obviously before launching this event across Europe we had in mind certain companies and organisations that we wanted to get involved, and discussions had begun early. Naturally, with the format of the show and what we are trying to achieve, KNX was very high on our list of organisations we wanted to be involved. We are delighted that they have decided to come on board as the main partner for the show, underlining the validity of the concept. We are excited to begin working with this key operator for the European market, making our very first EI Live Europe a big success.”
Wim De Vos, partnering the European show and heading up the education and training for the event, will be working closely with KNX to maximise the organisation’s training and conference offering.
