Facilities Integrate 2017 - Save the date! 

After carefully reviewing the feedback obtained from last year’s visitor and exhibitor surveys, the dates for Facilities Integrate Expo have come forward to September and will remain over this time frame in future.

This year, Facilities Integrate is back, but bigger, and taking place on Wednesday, 27 September and Thursday, 28 September at the ASB Showgrounds in Auckland.

Riding on last year’s success, we’re gathering even more expert companies across the facilities management and system integration industries so visitors can source, try and buy the latest equipment, discover the best suppliers, network with potential business partners, and stay on top of what’s going on in their industries.

Facilities Integrate combines the two rapidly converging worlds of building design and construction, with the solutions and services provided by the computer and networking industry, and is an invaluable resource for businesses sourcing the best products and services for it. 

This event provides a unique showcase for those who design, operate, maintain and upgrade buildings, facilities and infrastructure, or design, install and integrate AV and ICT systems.

Bringing buildings into the 21st century is all about connectivity, convenience, efficiency and ergonomics. And there’s no better place to discover what’s possible than at Facilities Integrate 2017.

Registrations open in May but we’re giving our valued exhibitors and attendees an early heads up so you can save the date, book your flights and accommodation, and notify your colleagues.

We look forward to seeing you at Facilities Integrate 2017. Keep an eye on our website for show updates and further information.

Facilities Integrate and the New Zealand Security Association

Facilities Integrate is without a doubt a perfectly timed and hugely significant trade show for New Zealand. As organisers we are committed to collaborating with relevant industry bodies to make the event a truely successful, business generating experience for everyone involved.

To that end it gives us enormous pleasure to welcome the New Zealand Security Association (NZSA) on board as a new partner.

The NZSA is the largest industry representative body for the security industry in New Zealand, and represents more than 85 per cent of the industry by revenue.

“By associating and working with the key industry groups supporting these critical business sectors, we gain vital industry knowledge that enable us to offer thought leading content, and reach a wider audience for show participants to network and trade with, resulting in meaningful new business relationships and sales,” says White.

Facilities Integrate is the biggest industry event and largest gathering of security companies of the year, says Gary Morrison, CEO of NZSA.

“We couldn’t be happier to be a part of the show, it’s an honour for us to get our brand recognised at a trade show of such high calibre. It’s also a great opportunity for us to network with our current members, source new members, and learn more from international, industry leading experts during the speaker sessions”, says Morrison.

“For show attendees it’s an opportunity to learn more about the NZSA, the latest technologies and build a reputable list of suppliers,” he says. 

Facilities Integrate Expo also welcomes back all other, very valued industry bodies, ASIS New Zealand, FMANZ, EMANZ, The KNX Association and NABERSNZ.

 “We’ll be working closely with all our industry partners on the best learning content, trending topics, technological advances and other educational show features to ensure professional, financial and industry benefits as well as business development for our show attendees,” concludes White.

Nationally, we see a move towards electric vehicles and have a new strategy from EECA that will shape our carbon future.
