Next month in Chicago technology end users, experts and industry professionals will convene at The Automation Conference (TAC) to explore industrial automation trends and technologies that are revolutionizing manufacturing. Now in its fourth year, TAC is designed for engineering and management professionals within discrete manufacturing, packaging, and continuous and batch processing. Topics to be covered include: the Industrial Internet of Things, 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing, Smart Manufacturing, safety, cyber security, Manufacturing Intelligence/Big Data, and remote access.

Taking place May 19-20 at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare, the conference is produced by PMMI Media Group, publishers of Automation World and Packaging World. Presenters include professionals from NASA, The Boeing Company, TransCanada (Keystone Pipeline), General Mills, the Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition, MOL Danube Refinery, Corning, the Industrial Internet Consortium, Comau LLC and other well-known organizations. In addition, 16 automation solution providers will host Technology Workshops throughout both days of the conference.

David Greenfield, Automation World’s Director of Content/Editor in Chief and TAC conference moderator, shares his thoughts: “Each year, The Automation Conference delivers key insights from the front lines of manufacturing and processing industry automation. But this year, industry trends—particularly around the potential of the Industrial Internet of Things, Big Data and 3D Printing/Additive Manufacturing—are aligning in such a way that the future of manufacturing is beginning to take shape in very different ways than we have come to recognize it today. The presentations and discussions that take place at The Automation Conference 2015 will give attendees the insights they need to weather the changes that are already beginning to alter their industries.”
