Automatic 2021

New location yields record signups for advancing trade show

A change of scenery can do wonders, even for a trade show. Since the close of Automate 2019 in April, more than 250 exhibitors have already booked around 150,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space for the 2021 show. This is, Automate says, the largest early sign-up in the history of the event, which dates back to 1977, and a strong endorsement of the show’s move to its new home in Detroit. The Automate website is in the process of being updated, and all exhibitors will be listed soon, parent organization A3 said in an August 14 press release e-mailed to EA.

Automate 2021 is slated to feature more than 500 exhibiting companies. More than 20,000 attendees are expected from small, medium, and large companies in every industry looking to successfully deploy automation. Exhibit space is now open to all companies who wish to exhibit.

“Automate has established itself as the most important show for users in every industry looking for automation solutions and the latest advances in automation, including robotics, machine vision, motion control, AI, and related technologies,” said Jeff Burnstein, president of the Association for Advancing Automation (A3), the show’s producer.

“As the use of automation grows globally, there’s an increasing demand for practical, real-world information about how to successfully automate,” Burnstein added. He noted that the five-day conference that accompanies the show is filled with practical presentations from leading global experts. The trade show floor itself also offers “expert huddles,” focused on specific areas of interest to users, such as collaborative robots, autonomous mobile robots, 3D vision, embedded vision, quality control, machine learning/AI, IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things), and motion control.
