Automation UpDate 2021

We will not be able to meet you personally with a global team in your region this fall 2021. Alternatively, we will invite you to join us via web conference.

Therefore, we have scheduled five exclusive online Automation UpDate seminars to provide deep technical information and best practices about all aspects of modern PC-based automation technologies. At the end of each presentation, you will have the chance to join a live Q&A session with the related product managers as well as selected international product specialists via the provided chat functionality. We look forward to your registration!

Participation is free, but registration is required:

October 05, 2021 – IPC
