This summit heralds the arrival of the most important event for the building technologies industry ever held in India. It will serve as a platform to bring together industry experts, leaders and decision makers from various end-user sectors, to identify emerging trends, technologies, growing market needs and preferences.

The summit will cover the entire spectrum of products and services from the industry, such as, Building Management Systems, Energy Management Services, HVAC Controls, System Integration, Fire Detection and Alarm, Electronic Access Control, Intrusion Detection, Video Surveillance (CCTV), Perimeter Protection and Security Guarding. It will also include relatively new areas such as Remote Monitoring Services (IP) and Video Analytics.

Mushtaq Md. Khan, Industry Manager, Environment and Building Technologies Practice, South Asia and Middle East, Frost and Sullivan, will be speaking on “Growth Opportunities and Challenges for the Indian Building Technologies Industry.” The presentation examines forces that drive or restrain market growth, challenges confronting the industry and the role of various entities of the ecosystem in industry’s growth, and offers insights into options for growth.

According to Mushtaq Md. Khan, “The exceptional performance of the industrial sector and the phenomenal growth in the construction of commercial and residential properties in India bodes well for the future of the Building Technologies industry. Changing attitude and perceptions about safety, security, comfort and energy savings and preference for state-of-the-art building technologies have increased the demand for fire, safety, security and building automation systems substantially. This growth has surpassed even the most optimistic expectations of many in the industry. Frost and Sullivan expects the market demand to grow at 30 percent per annum over the next 3 to 5 years. India has come under the focus of international market players who are keen to exploit the growth opportunities.”

The discussion topics for the summit have been finalised after considerable analysis and suggestions received from key industry participants across the globe. These include topics such as convergence and global trends in airport security technology; benefits of network video surveillance; remote and central monitoring of facilities; open building systems and many more. Panel discussions on ‘How secure are corporate facilities in India?’ and ‘Moving towards intelligent green buildings’ promise to be thought provoking and extremely insightful for delegates present.

With eminent luminaries such as Dr. Prem C Jain, Chairman, Indian Green Building Council; Kamal Meattle, Chief Executive Officer, Paharpur Business Centre and Software Technology Incubator Park; James McGuire, Senior Vice President, Transecure International, Inc.; Arun Khazanchi, President, Fire Safety Association of India; Ajay Gupta, Managing Director, G4S Security Services (India) Pvt. Ltd. and Dr. Diwan Rahul Nanda, Chairman and Managing Director, Tops Security Limited marking their presence, this summit is expected to be one of the most insightful Frost and Sullivan mind exchanges.

This one-day conference will culminate with the Building Technologies Excellence Awards 2007, another first from Frost and Sullivan.
