ABB Automation & Power World Breaks Attendance Records


Apr 06, 2009

ABB Automation & Power World 2009, held in Orlando, Fla., last month (March 24-26), exceeded event attendance expectations and attracted more than 3,300 attendees.

ABB also announced the dates and venue for ABB Automation & Power World 2010. The event will be held at the Hilton Americas in Houston, Texas, from May 18-20, 2010.

ABB Automation & Power World combined ABB’s two North American customer conferences into one event.  The three-day event was a comprehensive users’ conference and exhibition that showcased ABB’s automation and power offerings. It included more than 500 technical workshops and a 72,000-square-foot exhibit hall.

The convergence of key market issues, such as the need to improve energy efficiency in the face of soaring energy costs, and the productivity, reliability and safety gains achieved from process and electrical integration, combined with challenging economic conditions, have exponentially increased interest in both power and automation, according to ABB.
