Head to Houston for the 2017 Automation Fair® Event
The Automation Fair® event is taking place on Nov 15-16 at the George R. Brown Convention Center, in Houston, Texas, U.S. This annual event brings together Rockwell Automation and its comprehensive, global network of partners to help manufacturers learn about the latest technologies and trends in a single venue exclusive to manufacturers and producers around the world.
Last year at the event, there were more than a hundred of industry forums, user-group meetings, hands-on labs, technical sessions and demonstrations hosted for over 11,000 visitors to learn and use of the latest control, power, and information technologies.
This year, the event uses over 45,000 square feet exhibit floor featuring more than 140 exhibitors from Rockwell Automation and its PartnerNetwork™ program, showcasing their latest products and solutions.
There will be 19 hands-on labs, over 90 technical sessions and nine forums that give visitors opportunities to learn best practices for their operations.
The popular hands-on labs, offered up to four times a day, allow participants to work directly with Rockwell Automation products. Technical sessions are 60-minute presentations from leading industry and product specialists, and the forums provide real-world examples of how companies have increased their productivity and improved efficiency.
