"I am just back from BuilConn 2003 (www.builconn.com) and am extremely pleased to have been involved as a contributor to the content board, a moderator for several sessions, a panelist for two sessions, plus an overall fan of the BuilConn concept.
Anto Budiardjo's hallucination grew into a vision, shared first by a few and then more. The input from the more and their respective mosaics of different but similar large building integration businesses converted the shared vision into a reality. Even with the created reality of BuilConn, there was still concern as to whether we could transfer this vision to a fragmented industry, then throw in a few more obstacles such as a war and SARS to test if this concept was really viable. Suddenly, it was showtime: BuilConn 2003, April 23-25. No more time to think and worry.
