The three letters of the KNX name will be emblazoned in eye-catching locations in several of the halls at the fair, for example in the popular Galleria, where the KNX Association is building the “KNX city” on an area covering some 700 square metres. Topics addressed in the KNX city will include “Energy management in the city of the future”, “The new KNX software ETS5 and the new ETS apps” and “KNX Championship – the KNX competition”.
