Rockwell Automation – Automation Fair

November 14, 2018 @ 8:00 am - November 15, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Automation Fair® is the premier industrial automation event offering unmeasurable knowledge and skill-building opportunities in just two days.

At the event, you will be able to engage with product, technology, application, and industry experts to help solve your current business challenges, from application to enterprise.

With over 150 exhibits and more than 400 hours of education opportunities, Automation Fair offers you and your team the ability to:

  • Experience innovative technologies and trends
  • Accelerate your expertise and skillset
  • Transform your business

Highlights include over 100 hands on labs, technical sessions, and industry forums. Including the Workforce Development Forum and the Life Sciences Forum.

“In the U.S. alone, analysts forecast that nearly 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will be created by 2025, but with more than 20% of manufacturing workers set to retire, and new technology driving more complex skill set requirements, 2 million of those jobs could go unfilled.  Fending off the crisis demands creative workforce solutions that close the gap and meet the increasing demands of advanced manufacturing.  Join this discussion with a panel of analysts, talent acquisition specialists, educators, and your peers to brainstorm how to overcome the talent shortage and grow your business through new technologies, targeted training, and workforce augmentation.”


“Consumers continually seek the new and different, and prioritize taste and nutritional value. Food and Beverage companies are under pressure to get new, high-quality products through the facility quickly, while keeping prices low and food safe.  Learn how industry leaders are increasing yield and OEE, tackling security concerns, and improving flexibility with smart manufacturing to support The Connected Enterprise.”
