In today's article I'm giving a picture tour of Automation Fair 2014

We start our picture tour with a look at the entrance of the Anaheim, CA Convention Center:

Automation Fair 2014 1 Venue

As we approach, we find these two huge signs above the main entrance:

Inside, we're reminded to grab a copy of the Automation Fair mobile app:

Additional signage leads us down the hall to the show floor entrance:

As we enter the show, floor registration is the first step.

If you pre-registered, simply type in your name and click print:

Next, jump in line and sign-up for a coveted spot in one of the 18 hands-on labs:

With registration and lab sign-up done, we're ready to head out onto the show floor:

Before going too far we'll want to grab an Automation Fair event guide, and a bag to hold all the literature we'll pickup along the way:

This year's event is huge, and getting to all the vendors will be challenging as it is every year:

Bright and early Thursday morning I grabbed this panoramic from the middle of the show floor – many attendees appear to be sleeping in 😉

Lunch for the thousands of attendees was handled expertly as it is every year:

And at the end of two very busy days it's off to the airport to return home.

But I do hope to be back for next year's event in Chicago, Il:

That's it for our picture tour of Automation Fair 2014. In the coming days I'll be posting many more pictures along with product news from the show.
