Haystack Connect 2017


May 8th - 10th, 2017

Connecting Companies, Communities and People
who are Redefining Smart and Connected Systems.

The most significant advances in technology adoption are driven not by a single company, but rather by collaboration among a community of users with an interest in advancing the state of the industry.

Haystack Connect 2017 will once again bring together the systems integrators, technology providers, A&E firms, OEMs and end users who are leading the way to advance smart-device applications by streamlining the interoperability of systems and devices for a more efficient, sustainable environment.

Executive Director, Project Haystack

When it comes to data, it is one thing to have access to it, it's another to make it actionable. Simply put, the operational data from smart devices and equipment systems lacks information to describe its own meaning.

Without meaning, a time consuming manual effort is required before that data can be used effectively to generate value. At Haystack Connect 2017, you’ll see how it’s being done.

- Marc Petock
Executive Secretary, Project Haystack

Becoming a member of the Project Haystack Organization is very exciting for us. Our common goals mean we can collaborate to create innovative building systems which provide easy and understandable access to the wealth of available data.

We look forward to actively participating in the organization, their Haystack Connect conferences and working together with all the members in the future.

Associate & Controls Engineer, Arup

Speaking Opportunities

The conference program is driven by the Project Haystack community. In the past we have had a great line-up of Speakers and Presentations!

For the Haystack Connect 2017 Conference, our "Call for Speakers" will be announced in October of 2016. The selection committee will advise presenters of acceptance of their proposed presentations beginning December 2016 through January 2017.

We request that all presentations focus on its educational value as the primary goal. Commercial comments should be kept to an absolute minimum in keeping with culture of this conference.

Sponsorship and Exhibitor opportunities are available for everyone to present their latest technologies and products in the Vendor Showcase.
