The sun shined today in Houston! And visitors flocked to the ISA EXPO. The aisles were crowded especially near the main entrance. There were more people than I expected and not all of them had exhibitor’s badges. So either I set my expectations too low, the crowds looked bigger because it was a small space, or maybe, just maybe, there was a good crowd. I thought it unusual for the opening day.
I stopped by the ProSoft booth where they were between surges – seemed like they were having a good show so far. Read the report from their setup day on the ProSoft blog.
My colleague setting up the AS-i booth had an easy time except for one minor detail: the exhibit company forgot to ship the booth. So an exclusive truck got it to the hall overnight and a 6:00am start with a much larger than normal crew had it ready when the show opened. Not recommended for the faint of heart.
The motion control session this morning where I presented motion control with PROFINET and Joe Biondo presented SERCOS III did have attendees – 4 of them. I guess motion control at what is still a predominantly process show is not the most popular topic.
