SPS/IPC/Drives Show 2013: Around the Show

PROFINET and PROFIBUS were not confined to the PI Booth at SPS of course. But first, a little about the show and the PI booth, by the numbers:

32 Company kiosks in PI Booth
36 Length of PROFINET Wall in feet
100 Vendors in PI Booth
529 Pounds of “Gummi” logos at PI Booth
1,622 Exhibitors at SPS/IPC/Drives 2013
3,078 Square footage of PI Booth
10,000 Number of PROFINET “Gummi” Logos at PI Booth
10,000 Number of PROFIBUS “Gummi” Logos at PI Booth
60,027 Visitors to SPS/IPC/Drives 2013

What is a “Gummi” logo anyway? Pretty much what it sounds like, but some photos are coming in a future post.

The good news about a three-day show is that it is only three days; the bad news is that there is not enough time to see everything you would like to see. None the less, I managed to see the Phoenix Contact and Siemens booths:
