About BIG-EU Plugfest

The Plugfest was conceived to improve BACnet implementation and testing methods. It reduces both the risk of errors during commissioning and the number of faults in product development. 

The Plugfest provides device testing in pairing sessions.

Following positive feedback after the last event we have again reserved slots for three short developer presentations. Applications must be submitted using the registration form.

BACnet Secure Connect (BACnet/SC)

Gain the knowledge and skills necessary for integrating BACnet/SC into products and solutions, enhancing the interoperability of products with other BACnet/SC devices.

Plugfest Agenda

The BIG-EU Plugfest registration and set-up starts at 09:00 a.m. Monday, May 02, 2022, and continues for two and a half days until noon on Wednesday. The agenda includes a social event on Tuesday night.

Who should join?

The Plugfest is open to developers and product testers. Please note that sales and marketing staff will not be admitted. To ensure the event runs smoothly we ask you to respect some general terms: Plugfest participants need to be very familiar with the software and hardware that implements the capabilities being tested and are expected to have a good understanding of the BACnet protocol.


For technical reasons the number of teams is limited to 22. Allowed teams consist of two, maximum three persons. If there are still places available by the deadline of March 14, attending companies may bring more than one testing team, with a maximum of two participants per team. If the number of participants exceeds the maximum, BIG-EU member registrations will be given priority.

One person must register as “team captain” and take responsibility for completing all details about any devices that will be brought along. NOTE: It is mandatory for the team captain to provide all device details required for registration.
