The home of smart buildings, smart equipment and IoT
This past Sunday the team headed to Chicago for the much anticipated ControlTrends Awards.
The ceremony was held at the Hard Rock Cafe and took on a new approach this year with a live band and even more recognition categories. The ControlTrend guys, Eric Stromquist and Ken Smyers, always work hard to organize this event as a way to recognize the people and products that are impacting our industry.
Gerard Huff, our Director of Technical Services, took home the 2017 ControlTrends Trainer of the Year! Gerard travels the world bringing his unique technical teaching styles to End Users, System Integrators, and OEM trainers. We’re proud to have him on our team and so excited to see his hard work and skills recognized.
We’d like to congratulate our distributors and OEM Partners who received awards as well.
Our OEM Partner, EasyIO took home several awards at ControlTrends.
Not only did their products earn awards, their owner, Johan Schakenraad took home the 2017 ControlTrends Award Executive of the Year!
