Join Cisco at Rockwell Automation Fair in Philadelphia, November 7-8

 

Automation Fairis the largest gathering of Rockwell Automation users. With about 15,000 expected attendees this year, we think this is a can’t miss conference for leading manufacturers, controls, operations and IT professionals.

This year’s Automation Fair will feature industry forums that present examples and concepts different manufacturers have used to increase their productivity and improve the efficiency of their business. There will also be a variety of technical sessions each day on various topics from control system design to sustainable production.

With all there is to see and do at Automation Fair on November 7 and 8 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, here are just a few of the top reasons you should attend:

  • Great opportunity to network with Cisco and industry thought leaders and technical experts.
  • Cisco booth (#1307) featuring demonstrations on how industrial intelligence and EtherNet/IP can accelerate innovation and productivity, improve efficiency and safety, and converge systems and processes.
  • Rockwell Automation partnership booth (#1407) featuring Rockwell’s Allen Bradley Stratix Ethernet Switches based on Cisco technology – this booth will really bring to life the power of Rockwell’s partnerships that tie all aspects of network convergence together.
  • Executive events, speaking sessions including several featuring subject matter experts from Cisco

Show hours are as follows:

  • Wednesday, November 7 from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, November 8 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

(almost) real-time social media

We wanted our social media strategy for this year’s Automation Fair to be (almost) real-time; we wanted you to feel like you were attending the event as it unfolded.

Additionally, if you were at the event and weren’t able to see everything, then we wanted you to be able to catch-up on things you may have missed. So if you didn’t make it to our booth on the first day, then you could see a preview of what we had to offer to make sure you visited the second day.

Essentially, this is how we accomplished our goal: Read More »
