Wago announces 2012 Innovation in Automation tour dates
By Alyssa Dalton
March 5, 2012 – Wago’s 2012 Innovation in Automation Tour (IIAT) starts this month with Van 1 in Mississippi and Van 2 in southern California. Essentially mobile tradeshows, Wago’s IIAT Vans have traveled nearly 340,000 miles throughout Canada and the U.S. over six years, enabling the company to connect with industrial professionals who may be unable to attend tradeshows, while providing entire engineering staffs with hands-on product demos.
2012 Canadian IIAT stops:
• Week of May 6 – Alberta
• Week of May 13 – Alberta
• Week of June 17 – Ontario
• Week of June 24 – Ontario
• Week of July 1 – Quebec
• Week of July 8 – Quebec
Featuring new exterior graphics, twin IIAT vans are equipped with pick-and-play displays carrying Wago’s newest automation, electronic interface and interconnect solutions. Visits are coordinated by Wago representatives and field application engineers to address specific application issues. Free product samples and literature are available.
