Website launched for Automate 2015
Automate 2015's website has been launched to deliver information about the upcoming trade show, which will be held March 23-26, 2015, at McCormick Place in Chicago.
Automate 2015 show organizers announced that a new website for the event has launched. The new website address is: www.AutomateShow.com. Automate 2015 will be held March 23-26, 2015, at McCormick Place in Chicago. The new website is the place for exhibitors, attendees and the media to find news and information about the trade show and conference.
Highlights of the new website include responsive design for easy viewing on mobile devices; an interactive exhibit hall floor plan; a redesigned new product showcase; and a new site search feature. Automate 2015 will also have an app available for mobile devices in the future.
With the Automate 2015 show still 16 months away, automation companies from around the world have already reserved over 80% of the current exhibit floor space. Due to the success of Automate 2013, about 25% of the exhibitors have increased their exhibit space over 2013, and 10% of the current exhibitors have never exhibited at Automate before.
Automate 2015 offers in-depth conference sessions as well as the trade show floor, featuring a broad array of classes from beginner to advanced levels. Automate 2015 will also host the ISR North America in 2015, the world’s most prestigious international robotics conference.
Automate 2015 will be collocated with ProMat 2015, North America’s leading warehousing and distribution show, sponsored by MHI. Attendees of either show will be able to attend the collocated show using the same badge. More than 30,000 registrants are expected for the two events.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
