Many of us can't afford the time or expense required to travel to industry trade shows to learn what's new and coming in industrial automation.

And even those of us located near major metropolitan areas, which seem to have no shortage of vendors willing to provide updates, taking time out of our busy days can still be a challenge.

With that in mind, I wanted to reach out to see which websites you find the most useful for staying up to date on automation industry news and new product releases.

So if you have a moment, please vote in the poll on the right by selecting those automation websites you visit most often, or add your own favorite sites by selecting the “other” option and filling in the text field.

Thanks in advance for taking part!
