LonMark will have a large footprint at the show including a booth, education sessions and multiple members participating. It will be held April 15-20, in Messe Frankfurt, Germany.
The new magazine format will provide readers with important information on new projects, hardware and software products, emerging technologies, market trends, and new products and services to hit the market.
