Virtually Everything

More screen-to-screen trade shows and events dot the calendar

We tire of hearing it, but screen-to-screen is the new face-to-face. That includes trade shows—often relished as the heart and soul of the industries covered in EA—as we’ve all learned the hard way in 2020.

Fear not! EASA, ever the pillar of the electromechanical world, is determined to get us all back under one roof eventually, and preparation starts now. “Our team just returned from Fort Worth to make plans for a productive and safe event for 2021,” the organization said in an email. “We are looking forward to having the industry under one roof next June!” Booth assignments start on October 15! Find your preferred spot on the floor plan and submit your application today!

Meanwhile, the rest of the trade show world must push forward virtually for the time being. The AWWA virtual summit, which we previewed a few weeks back, may be over, but doing things digital offers no shortage of continued access. That event is now offering select digital recordings until October 26, including its keynote speaker presentations.

Meanwhile, shifting from water quality to water power…

Hydrovision Exchange will take place November 16-19, 2020. This four-day live event will be a completely virtual experience that will kick off with a keynote address and provide timely content and education sessions, peer-to-peer networking, vendor product and service demonstrations and matchmaking assistance between decision-makers and sellers. It also includes a promising charitable component—where you can actually participate in something physically!

Hydrovision Exchange and The Hydropower Foundation are hosting the 7th Annual Turbine Runner 5k virtually this year. “The Turbine Runner 5K will be a fun run, race or walk, on a route of your choice,” Hydrovision says. “Run independently or with a team from your company while raising funds to support the Hydropower Foundation’s mission. Participants will be able to choose when they can run between Monday, November 16th through Friday, November 20th coinciding with Hydrovision Exchange. Medals will be awarded for top male, female and company team.”

Lastly, FANUC has new automation and robotic solutions that it wants to share with the public at its first ever virtual event called “Take Control”.  The event launches Oct. 19-22, and will include three zones: Knowledge, Solutions and Exploration.

“We’ve invited companies from every manufacturing industry looking to solve manufacturing problems,” Cathy Powell, FANUC’s public relations and marketing manager, said in an e-mail to Electrical Apparatus. “Our team of engineers and process experts will be on hand to provide automation insights and respond to questions.”  For those hoping to attend, here’s a quick link to register
