exiderdome tour of Charlotte put on hold
Siemens' event delayed over legal issues; company plans to restart in Orlando in February
Siemens Energy & Automation, Inc. announced that exiderdome’s stop in Charlotte, scheduled for Dec. 8-12
A company press release stated, “After successful stops in four U.S. cities and nearly 5,000 visitors, exiderdome cannot be transferred from a barge to land for the second half of its U.S. tour, due to legal disputes involving key logistics suppliers. The company is currently exploring options for rescheduling the visit to Charlotte after exiderdome’s stop in Houston.”
exiderdome combines technology displays and expertise delivered through learning events to demonstrate how Siemens brings more to its customers in the manufacturing and commercial facilities segments than any other automation company.
After Orlando, exiderdome is scheduled to visit Los Angeles (March 5-11, 2009), Denver (April 6-10, 2009) and Houston (May 4-8, 2009).
"exiderdome is about generating conversations with our customers and between our customers about best practices, innovations and the challenges facing industry," said Thomas Varney, vice president of communications at Siemens Energy & Automation. "While these legal disputes have resulted in the cancellation of exiderdome in Charlotte, our customers are hungry for ways to improve their efficiency and productivity to remain competitive in the current economic landscape, so we will try to reschedule the visit to Charlotte."
"More than two years and countless hours have been devoted to making exiderdome an extremely rewarding experience for our customers, prospective customers, channel partners, employees and the communities in which Siemens serves," said Varney. "We have received positive feedback from everyone who has experienced exiderdome, so Siemens is doing everything it can to help resolve these issues. We are confident these legal issues will be resolved quickly and exiderdome will resume its scheduled tour of the United States."

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
