Unsolicited Feedback on The Automation Conference

An attendee at The Automation Conference 2013 offers great insight into what it's like to be an attendee at the conference.

You may be aware that my time with Automation World is somewhat divided. A significant portion of my time is, of course, devoted to content development and direction for the Automation World website and print publication. An equally significant amount of my time is devoted to content development for The Automation Conference.

Though we receive quite a bit of feedback from attendees during the conference and via the evaluation forms they fill out for each session, I was surpised to see a completely unsolicited piece of feedback on the event appear on an unaffiliated U.K.-based website. The article was posted by Chris Jones, group sales manager of control at tna, a U.K.-based supplier of integrated food packaging equipment with more than 6,000 systems installed in more than 120 countries.

Here's a sample of what Chris had to say about the conference: "As this was my first visit to The Automation Conference I was unsure of what to expect when I arrived in the so-called 'windy' city. I knew from the conference’s promotional material that I would be treated to a range of presentations covering a diverse selection of topics from using mobile and cloud to revolutionise manufacturing to the benefits of integrating quality management systems into process management environments. The presentation sessions didn’t disappoint and provided useful insights into the latest innovations and approaches to leverage automation. They helped spark lively debate amongst the delegates and the presenters too!"

Needless to say, all of us affiliated with The Automation Conference were very happy to hear about Chris's impression of the conference. With planning for the 2014 event already underway, we're already getting very excited about the potential for next year's event.
