The Rockwell Automation Fair in Anaheim (CA US) produced a plethora of reports so I have producing this summary of all the reports and releases I have been able to find thus far. These are mostly gleaned from the twitter link for #autofair and readers may get a better flavour of the event from these.

Tweeting by the hosting company was far more prolific than at previous events we have covered. One thing I noticed was their use of twittering to advise of meetings e.g. “Global machine builders #autofair industry forum starts at 10 a.m. Room 304 C-D http://bit.ly/1hfyEj” or “Roche discusses successful MES implementation at AF industry forum #autofair Room 304 A-B http://bit.ly/21dYiB. See a selection of tweets made from the show at the bottom of the page!

Though the Fair proper started on the 11th November there were lots of things happening on before then.

The major one was the Safety Automation Forum moderated by the indefatigable Gary Mintchell of Automation World.

ControlGlobal produced a daily newsletter (as they have done for other such events) and we place links to each issue at the top. There was also a well attended press event at which Rockwell President Nosbusch discussed trends and the future.

These then are the reports, releases and other miscellaneous pieces of information you might like to read.
