Each year across EMEA, we host Automation Universities specifically aimed at engineers, IT specialists, business managers, purchasing professionals and consultants.
Automation University is Rockwell Automation signature event which is open to everyone – brings together people and products, latest news, tools, views, trends and technologies of Integrated Information and Automation Solutions.
The event is designed to give professionals an opportunity to discuss current and emerging challenges within the industry. We have compiled an enriched program full of insight, ideas and practical solutions to help you stay ahead of the competition.
At this two-day event you'll experience demonstrations and presentations relating to the products and services we offer; from stand-alone industrial components to enterprise-wide integrated systems. We'll explore the influence that Smart Manufacturing, Industry 4.0 and The Connected Enterprise have on the automation sector and how Information Technology (IT) and Operation Technology (OT) converge to bring you increased profitability, lower operating costs and faster time to market.
With more than 30 different hands-on labs, demonstrations, presentations and guided tours on the interactive show floor you will be able to select a program specific to your needs.
