The Industrial Internet of Things, 3D Printing, and Smart Manufacturing Headline the Agenda at The Automation Conference 2015

Jan. 27, 2015
The Automation Conference 2015, held in Chicago May 19-20, will explore the technologies and strategies transforming manufacturing worldwide.

This May 19-20, technology end users, experts and other industry professionals will convene in Chicago to explore today’s leading-edge automation technologies. Now in its fourth year, The Automation Conference (TAC) is designed for engineering and management professionals within discrete manufacturing, packaging, and continuous and batch processing. A few of the topics to be covered include: The Industrial Internet of Things, 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing, Smart Manufacturing Systems, Safety, Cybersecurity, Manufacturing Intelligence/Big Data, and Remote Access.

Taking place at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare, the conference is produced by PMMI Media Group. Confirmed speakers for the 2015 event include professionals from General Mills, Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition, MOL Danube Refinery, Corning, Industrial Internet Consortium, Comau, Scott Farms, IHS and other well-known organizations. In addition, key solution providers will present educational Technology Workshops throughout both days of the conference.

David Greenfield, Automation World’s Director of Content/Editor in Chief and TAC conference moderator, shares his thoughts: “Each year, The Automation Conference delivers key insights from the front lines of manufacturing and processing industry automation. But this year, industry trends—particularly around the potential of the Industrial Internet of Things, Big Data and 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing—are aligning in such a way that the future of manufacturing is beginning to take shape in very different ways than we have come to recognize it today. The presentations and discussions that take place at The Automation Conference 2015 will give attendees the insights they need to weather the changes that are already beginning to alter the industry.”
