Intersec Forum to be back on stage at Light + Building 2022

9 Feb 2021

The next Intersec Forum will take place as a live conference again. The specialist conference for connected security technology is the cross-industry expert meeting and networking event for planners, operators and developers of building services technology. As scheduled, it will take place during the coming Light + Building from 13 to 18 March 2022 – and enrich the Intersec Building section as an information interface.

Accordingly, the Intersec Forum will bundle its energies for the upcoming conference. "Given the event restrictions that remain in place, the focus will be on digital-only business meetings until the second quarter of 2021. The Intersec Forum will therefore take a break in March and return in 2022 for Light + Building with a comprehensive programme", said Iris Jeglitza-Moshage, Member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt.
