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:
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:
Here's a panoramic of the entrance area – click on the image to see a larger version:
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.
Until then, if you have a comment, question, suggestion or correction, please feel free to leave them here by using the “post a comment or question” link below.
Until next time, Peace ✌️
