Automation and Motion Virtual Expo 2020

Safe to say, industry is becoming smart. Being effective and innovative is no longer enough, smart is the new “must-have.”  As such, the little word quickly becomes a burden. However, smart technologies bring so many wonderful possibilities for the automated industry. Because they make processes work on their own and adapt automatically to individual conditions.

Virtual booths - a chance to talk to industry experts about the latest technology innovations!

Visit any of the booths and get access to lots of useful collateral like presentations, videos, brochures, manuals, links to important websites, etc. Also interact with a Canadian expert live at the booths.


The booths cover a wide product portfolio including:

  • Discrete Automation
  • Process automation
  • Communication and Identification
  • Services

Canadian experts will provide live presentations and demonstrations on various interesting topics related to Discrete Automation and Motion. Join us for these live sessions and interact with our experts. The agenda for the live sessions is provided below.

Live conference - November 3rd, 2020
