The Automation Conference logoHere's your invitation to a comprehensive automation conference you won't want to miss, May 24-25 in Chicago, Illinois: The Automation Conference.

See below for your special code to get $100 off the cost of admission.

Join us there and learn from over two dozen educational sessions on key trends in the process industries, discrete manufacturing, and packaging:

  • Practical applications of the Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Collaborative robotics
  • Industrial cybersecurity 
  • Operator-designed high-performance HMI
  • Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE)
  • Integrating MES + ERP

Get a start on your IoT strategy in the workshop, The Internet of Things in Automation: What you need to know and why, given by Opto 22's Matt Newton. The workshop is scheduled for both days of the conference.

If you're concerned about cybersecurity in control systems (and aren't we all), be sure to attend the Cybersecurity Panel: Remote Access & the Internet of Things. Matt brings both his IT and his automation experience to the panel.

Be sure to stop by the Expo, where we'll be demonstrating groov for building your own mobile operator interfaces; SNAP PAC controllers; and our reliable, flexible, guaranteed-for-life SNAP I/O.

The Automation Conference is a great opportunity to network with experts in our field, check out the latest trends and new products, and get practical insights from other experienced practitioners. Take a look at the Conference program for more specifics.

Hope to see you there!
