IANA, MDA pavilions focus on automation, motion excellence
Industrial Automation North America (IANA) is returning in 2014 as a one-day seminar with manufacturing experts providing insights using automation.
Industrial Automation North America (IANA), presented by Hannover Fairs USA, made its debut as a co-located pavilion with IMTS in 2012. Returning in 2014 as a co-located show at the 2014 IMTS Show Sept. 8-13 at Chicago's McCormick Place, it will showcase the best in process, factory, and building automation.
As part of the 2014 IANA event, CFE Media will again present the Global Automation and Manufacturing Summit. This one-day seminar will deliver top manufacturing experts with on-the-ground insights into the automation used to deliver manufacturing results.
The 2014 introduction of Motion, Drive & Automation North America (MDANA) as a second co-located show will further expand the range of technologies and solutions presented at IMTS by bringing together the power transmission, motion control and fluid technology sectors. MDAMA also is presented by Hannover Fairs USA.

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.
