…and this is what it is: I am going to be there from Monday noon until Thursday afternoon, and I won’t have time to hear most of the speakers!!
Why? Because so many automation suppliers, and ARC sponsors, are having press events and want meetings DURING the scheduled presentations.
This has been getting worse the last few years, and finally it is WAY OVER THE TOP!!!
Andy, how about a “press day” like Rockwell does at Automation Fair?
I WANT to listen to the talks. I am seriously torqued that I won’t be able to listen to many of them.
And I want to apologise to the executives who have taken their extremely valuable time to come and talk, because I won’t be able to hear them and report accurately on what they said.
It’s a shame.
