* CABA's first E-Vent to feature Technology Roadmap *

CABA is pleased to announce that it will be holding its first online seminar, or E-Vent, on December 6, 2001. CABA E-Vents are interactive Web based/conference call seminars designed for busy executives wanting to profit from the latest industry research, while saving money on travel budgets. Because a CABA E-Vent is designed to be viewed on a PC along with a conference audio link, there is no limit to the number of participants from your company. As Your Information Source for Home & Building Automation, CABA is committed to offering you rich and diverse content to help you reach your business objectives.

Please sign up to participate today at

CABA's first E-Vent will feature information about the Technology Roadmap for Intelligent Building Technologies. If your company needs to know about the present and future opportunities in the intelligent building space, then you need to sign up. Share in the preliminary results of this project as its head research, Frank Spitzer, Senior Associate at IBI Group, discusses the key areas of opportunity in the sector.
