Rockwell to host event in Dammam

01 July 2014

ROCKWELL has announced that the first leg of Automation University, one of the EMEA’s significant free manufacturing events, is coming to Dammam in September.

The event is specifically designed to give professionals in the fields of management, engineering, maintenance, purchasing and IT an opportunity to discuss current and emerging challenges with industry colleagues, technical specialists and business consultants... all in a relaxed, friendly, non-sales environment.

It will be held at the Sheraton Dammam Convention and Exhibition Centre on September 9 and 10.

Due to continuous assessment of the shows’ programmes and differing regional needs, Rockwell Automation tailors the direction and content, helping to make the information, technology and advice at the shows the best possible fit for the local and contemporary issues facing the visitors.

“And, thanks to the parallel streams and sheer variety of what is on offer, users are able to tailor a programme that suits their requirements; meaning they don’t miss out on vital sessions or have to sit through presentations that do not concern them,” a Rockwell statement said.

Held at different EMEA venues every year, each event takes place over two days offering multiple hands on labs, live demos, seminars and industry sessions and bringing together solutions and specialists. On average each event runs 10 parallel sessions, with a total of 65 sessions per day. The last round of events saw 400-500 people at each venue. Rockwell Automation is also joined by many of its technology partners, in a large central show area (averaging 1,000 sq m), where demo walls, mock ups and industry-specific applications are re-enacted for the benefit of visitors.

Already with a 10-year pedigree, Automation University has been phenomenally well received everywhere it has been held thanks to its ability to deliver what people really need to know.
