One-day Training Class Retrospective

Two countries, twenty cities, and thousands educated – those were our one-day training class statistics for 2010.  (Not to mention thousands of air miles for Ron, Manny, Hunter, Torsten, and me.)  If you missed us in 2010, we hope to see you in 2011.  We have not picked dates yet, but we are tentatively planning these cities for 2011:

Huntsville Chicago
Indianapolis Richmond
Houston Philadelphia/New Jersey
Raleigh Spokane
Denver Cincinnati
Minneapolis Milwaukee
San Diego Rochester, NY
Pittsburgh Houston
  Greenville, SC

I have to say that being able to talk to users, SIs, device makers, and distributors at these classes is one of the best parts of my job.  The questions asked are usually thought-provoking as are the comments and the conversations during breaks and lunch.

Now off to the SPS/IPC/Drives Show.  There is sure to be lots of automation news, especially PROFINET and PROFIBUS news, as this show continues to grow.  I’ll blog some reports when I return after Thanksgiving and tweet some news throughout the week.  If you are attending the show, stop by Hall 6, Booth 6-210 and say “Hi.”
