A3 Business Conference Sessions & Networking Success

Last week Dave Spaulding and I attended the annual A3 Business Forum. The Association for Advancing Automation (A3) is the umbrella association for the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), AIA - Advancing Vision + Imaging, and Motion Control Association (MCA). The A3 staff hosted an event that was informative, entertaining, and productive. Keynote speakers provided perspectives on things often too busy to consider. The sessions were specific and at times stimulating, and the networking opportunities were fantastic with friends new and old. The A3 Business Forum mobile app was great and worked very well for scheduling conference time and for making notes. Most questions were answered in the app. Thanks to everyone at A3 who put together this quality event.
