ASB Showgrounds recently opened its doors to architects, facility managers and building operators from around the country as the inaugural Facilities Integrate trade show kicked in to gear. The first of its kind in New Zealand, the event focused on new ways to make facilities and buildings smarter, safer and more efficient. ASSA ABLOY New Zealand and ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems partnered to exhibit ASSA ABLOY as the total entrance automation and access control solution.
Along with a fresh look and feel for our stand, a number of new products were showcased at the event. Most notably, SMARTair™, a powerful access control system that offers an intelligent, yet simple, step up from keys. This caught the eye of the attendees due to the simplicity of installation, ease of management, and its scalability from a single door to 100+ doors.

The products on show at Facilities Integrate reinforced ASSA ABLOY’s status as a leader in innovation. The intention is to develop new products that solve customer problems and create customer value, based on sustainable solutions and processes. This has led to the introduction of intelligent solutions and products such as SMARTair™ that contribute to improved energy efficiency and cost savings for customers.
Partnering with the Facilities Management Association of New Zealand (FMANZ) and the Energy Management Association of New Zealand (EMANZ), Facilities Integrate had all the right credentials, and this was reflected in the turnout. The event attracted a respectable 2117 attendees over the two days, with decision makers from some of the largest companies in the country in attendance.
Facilities Integrate has successfully established itself as a must-do for those in the facility management industry and, with talks of an even bigger event next year, we look forward to exhibiting at Facilities Integrate in 2016.
