Automate 2015 Show on Track to be 50-percent Bigger
New and returning exhibitors of the Automate 2015 show already have secured more than 150 percent of exhibit floor space, compared with the last show in 2013, according to the Association for Advancing Automation.
Automate 2015, which takes place March 23-26 in Chicago, Ill., recently was named one of the “Top 10 Manufacturing Shows” in the United States.
“Today’s automation industry is rapidly growing with new innovations, markets and technology,” said Jeff Burnstein, president of A3.
He added, “The growth of Automate 2015 reflects the enthusiasm and advancement around automation technology. Automate 2015 provides suppliers, distributors, integrators, and end users an avenue for making connections, learning about new technology, discussing challenges and discovering automation solutions and opportunities.”
In addition to the show, Automate 2015 includes a conference featuring the 46th International Symposium on Robotics.
The conference provides practical classes that are taught by experienced industry professionals who know the challenges faced by companies using or considering using automation. Topics cover key issues in robotics, motion control, vision and imaging, and related automation segments.
Attendees from all levels, whether seeking a basic level of automation or looking for more advanced courses, will have the opportunity to learn practical solutions they can take back with them to the workplace.
Professionals in the vision industry can take special classes that are required to earn the Certified Vision Professional (CVP) designation. The CVP designation is offered at both the Basic and Advanced Levels, with testing also offered at Automate 2015
On March 24, basketball legend and television sportscaster Bill Walton will make an appearance at the Automate Show. The Walton appearance is sponsored by ATI Industrial Automation and SCHUNK.
