The Association for Advancing Automation (A3) announced today that new and returning exhibitors of the Automate 2015 show have already secured over 150% of exhibit floor space compared to the last show in 2013. Automate 2015, which takes place March 23-26, 2015 in Chicago, Illinois was recently named one of the “Top 10 Manufacturing Shows” in the United States.  

“Today’s automation industry is rapidly growing with new innovations, markets and technology,” said Jeff Burnstein, President of A3. “The growth of Automate 2015 reflects the enthusiasm and advancement around automation technology. Automate 2015 provides suppliers, distributors, integrators, and end users an avenue for making connections, learning about new technology, discussing challenges and discovering automation solutions and opportunities.”

In addition to the show, Automate 2015 includes a conference featuring the 46th International Symposium on Robotics.  The conference provides practical classes that are taught by experienced industry professionals who know the challenges faced by companies using or considering using automation. Topics cover key issues in robotics, motion control, vision and imaging, and related automation segments. Attendees from all levels, whether seeking a basic level of automation or looking for more advanced courses, will discover practical solutions they can take back with them to the workplace. Professionals in the vision industry can take special classes that are required to earn the highly-coveted Certified Vision Professional (CVP) designation. The CVP designation is offered at both the Basic and Advanced Levels, with testing also offered at Automate 2015. Registration for the conference is now available.

On Tuesday, March 24, 2015, basketball legend and television sportscaster Bill Walton will make an appearance at the Automate Show. The Walton appearance is sponsored by ATI Industrial Automation and SCHUNK.  Attendees can meet Bill Walton at the ATI Industrial Automation and SCHUNK booths and also chat with him at the Automate Madness Networking Party held at McCormick Place on Tuesday, March 24, 2015 at 5:30pm.
