The perfect prospect match starts here

The Industrial Automation Summit is your proven way to engage with decision-makers, condensing six months of sales meetings into 48 hours.

December 9-11, 2024

Join us for this unique event including private meetings and dynamic networking with interested professionals in the industrial automation community.

HOW IT WORKS

We screen and interview all industrial operations leaders (decision-makers with automation purchasing authority) to understand what they need, what they want, and what kind of budget they have to work with – a qualification process you won’t find at any other industry event. If an applicant meets our criteria to participate, the Summit provides a travel allowance for them to attend.

  • You and your prospects will be matched with a custom agenda of meetings

  • You will receive profiles of each prospect including their investment plans for the next 6 to 18 months

  • Prospects will receive a description of the capabilities you provide

What to Expect

Join an exclusive group of industrial automation professionals for two dynamic days of:

  • Small group product presentations

  • One-on-one meetings

  • Matched meals

  • Memorable social activities

Supplier Participation is Limited

To ensure that attending leaders see the range of products they’ve come to source, we limit the number of suppliers and product categories at the Summit. This means:

  • Your competition is also limited

  • You spend two days participating in highly-focused meetings with the right decision-makers

  • The Summit will fill up soon – reserve your space today!

WHY SUPPLIERS SHOULD ATTEND

Are you a supplier looking to provide automation and control technologies to industrial organizations?  The Industrial Automation Summit provides an unparalleled platform to showcase your products and educate manufacturing decision-makers on their value.  Here's why you should be a part of this exceptional event:

Direct Access to Top Prospects

Suppliers gain direct access to a highly targeted audience of industrial automation leaders who are decision-makers in their respective organizations. This is your chance to present your products and services to those who truly matter.

Education Opportunities

Automation professionals are constantly seeking innovative solutions to enhance their operational efficiency and effectiveness. By attending the Summit, you can educate them on how your products address their challenges and contribute to their success.

A Custom Agenda
of Meetings

Using our proprietary matching system, the Summit team will generate a personalized agenda that includes private small group presentations, one-on-one meetings, matched meals, and memorable social activities with the prospects you want to meet, and who want to meet you.

All Inclusive;
No Hassles

Everything is included in one price: your resort rooms, airport transfers, meals, and A/V. There are no booths, no exhibitor manual, and no hidden costs. At the Summit, we want you to focus on meeting prospects, not meeting planning. This all comes at a cost similar to what you’d pay for at a national tradeshow.

See what industry suppliers like you have to say about our Summits:

"The opportunity to meet one on one with decision makers and agencies that are or have expressed interest in our services is absolutely unmatched in any other 'trade show' format."

"The Summit gives you an opportunity to have personal conversations with vendors. You get to learn more about them personally as well as their products/company and also provide them feedback on their offerings. One of them mentioned to me that he felt treated like an equal at the Summit rather than one of hundreds in an exhibit hall."
