Plugfests are group test events that allow participants to collectively test their devices with each other in accordance with a specific test plan. These test plans are comprised of interoperability tests based on functional aspects of a given standard.
Plugfests generally last one week. Not including time for setup and teardown, vendors can expect to get a full twelve hours of testing out of every day of the event, from 8am to 8pm. Gourmet lunch is provided to all participants, catered by UNH Hospitality Services.
