Ever Had Your IBCon Badge Scanned with the Promise of a Fabulous Prize? We Scan and Deliver!

Thursday, September 5, 2013

On June 12th-13th Enerliance attended IBCon 2013 in Orlando Florida. The event is the largest gathering of authorities and experts within the Intelligent Building Industry. It was a fantastic opportunity to network with a community that shared the same passions as us. We were honored to have two of our projects selected as featured case studies during the conference.

We had a great time; we met a lot of interesting people; we learned all about new technology, and most importantly, we had a chance to show off LOBOS.

We also gave away a free iPad to one lucky booth visitor. Our winner was William Rhodes, a Senior Market Analyst at IHS. We got to catch up with him and talk about his big win.

ENL: Congratulations on your big win! Tell us a little about yourself and your position as Senior Market Analyst at IHS?

Will: I am a senior market analyst in the building technologies research group at IHS. I look after a team of analysts researching and providing insight on the global markets for building automation systems, smart building, energy management and other related areas. I have been at IHS for about four years, having previously worked as a business development manager for AV Network and completed a BS in Economics from the University of Sheffield.

ENL: Why were you attending IBCON?

Will: I wanted to talk with building owners, developers and other key end users to hear their real world experiences of installing smart building systems. I also wanted to see some of the latest technology releases from the vendors at the conference.

ENL: What sorts of things did you enjoy at the conference?

Will: I really enjoyed the intelligent buildings boot camp. There was some great examples of how to commission, finding funding, and overcome some of the challenges of installing and operating a smart building systems.

ENL: What new things did you learn? How do you think you will be able to incorporate what you learned at IHS?

Will: One interesting thing I found out was that to make a smart building system implementation successful you need to get buy-in from all the parties involved from the facilities managers through to the board and of course the building occupants themselves. A collaborative approach leads to the best results. I hope to include this and other key insights in our new report on the opportunities for smart buildings.

ENL: Were you surprised to win the iPad?

Will: It was a complete surprise, and came completely out of the blue.I never win anything in prize draws. Hopefully my luck with start to improve now…

ENL: Do you have any apps you can’t wait to download and play around with?

Will: I have an iPad but I hardly get to use it because my fiancée hogs it all the time. I am looking forward to using a nice brand new one whilst my fiancée can keep the older one…

ENL: Is there anything else you’d like to say?

Will: I would just like to thank Enerliance, this came completely out of the blue and was a fantastic surprise.

 Thanks for visiting our booth Will, and enjoy your new iPad!
