KNXperience - the first online KNX exhibition organised by KNX Association, took place from 28 September to 2 October 2020, and was hailed a great success. It featured a total of 71 KNX-coordinated conference sessions and two exhibit halls with 42 booths, bringing together thousands of participants across 148 countries to discover the latest KNX developments, products, solutions, awards, promotions and more. Although the event is officially over, the platform https://KNXperience.knx.org is still accessible to everyone until end of October.
President of KNX Association, Franz-Josef Kammerl, sums the show-up, "This was our first attempt at a global online trade show dedicated to KNX, and we have been overwhelmed by the positive response. The show was open to everyone and allowed them to discover the latest KNX solutions and developments, to connect with industry professionals from across the globe, access new tools, and win fabulous prizes. We promised an exciting and inspirational week of KNXperience, and that's what we delivered. I am so proud of the whole KNX community for making this event such a great success."
Exhibitors and visitors were just as enthusiastic:
"My impression of the exhibition is very positive. We've had good feedback from visitors, with a lot of personal chat and deeper introductions to products. The pleasant surprise is that it is working very well - the Association has done a great job in my opinion and all of the guests have enjoyed the event," said Giangiacomo Pastore of KNX Member, Eelectron.
"I can't describe how happy I am, it's just like being at Light + Building but perhaps even better because I can rapidly switch between halls without getting tired. I am amazed and so proud to be a member of the KNX family," said Amin, a KNX professional from Tunisia.
