European BACnet Plugfest cancelled

Berlin/Zug, May 25th, 2020. - It was to have been the world's first BACnet Plugfest after the BACnet Secure Connect addendum has been published. But now the BACnet Interest Group Europe (BIG-EU) has cancelled the 14th European BACnet Plugfest because of the COVID 19 pandemic.

The get-together of BACnet developers, which is known far beyond Europe, was scheduled to take place from June 17-19 at Siemens Schweiz AG. BIG-EU President and Siemens Standardization Manager Klaus Wächter, and the technical director of the Plugfest at Siemens, Thomas Kurowski, pointed out: "We would have been more than happy to conduct the Plugfest, but nature was against us". The BIG-EU now hopes to schedule its next annual BACnet Plugfest in 2021.
