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:

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

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:

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