ISA Announces Location and Dates for ISA Automation Week 2011
Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA (1 October 2010)—The International Society of Automation (ISA), announced today that ISA Automation Week 2011: Technology and Solutions Event will be held at the Arthur R. Outlaw Mobile Convention Center in Mobile, Alabama, USA, on 17-20 October, 2011.
“The City of Mobile has welcomed us with open arms. From top to bottom, Mobile is a perfect match for ISA Automation Week 2011. The convention center is a state-of-the-art facility that will accommodate our expected growth and expansion and enable us to continue providing a quality experience for attendees,” said 2010 ISA President Nelson Ninin.
Winner of numerous architectural awards, the Arthur R. Outlaw Mobile Convention Center offers ISA Automation Week a flexible floor plan that will accommodate a planned expansion from 2010 in response to increased demand from industry.
“ISA Automation Week will continue to raise the bar for the technical conference. With an exhibitor waiting list of almost 50% of our total 2010 capacity, we’re expanding in response to the positive feedback and interest industry has shown this premier event. ISA’s unbiased technical content is, and has been for decades, unmatched by most other automation conferences in the US and perhaps the world,” said ISA Executive Director and CEO Pat Gouhin. “With early interest and demand, we are very excited about our 2011 annual event,” Gouhin continued.
Conveniently connected to the convention center via a skywalk, the Renaissance Mobile Riverview Plaza Hotel will serve as ISA’s official host hotel. Historic Battle House Renaissance Mobile Hotel & Spa will provide additional meeting space for auxiliary events held during ISA Automation Week 2011.
Mobile, along with most cities on the Gulf of Mexico, provides a great market base for ISA Automation Week exhibitors, with several key industries represented, including petrochemical, aerospace, automotive, steel, energy and general manufacturing. Its attractive coastal location offers attendees traveling from around the globe a welcome, relaxing venue as they pursue their professional development goals.
"The Mobile Section of ISA is looking forward to welcoming ISA Automation Week 2011 to the city of Mobile. We're thrilled to contribute to ISA Automation Week and are looking forward to making it a huge success,” concluded ISA Mobile Section President Ryan McKee.
