DMC attended the annual Siemens Automation Summit last month, held June 23 - 26, 2014. We enjoyed four days of learning and networking with new friends at Walt Disney World's Contemporary Resort in Orlando, FL.
The week kicked off with Monday night's popular Connect Event. This casual cocktail event allowed attendees to build their network using a mobile friendly app or website developed by DMC and Prism Systems to connect and share contact information. Attendees also got a preview of the cool Anki DRIVE racetracks that would be at the Siemens Solution Partner booth for the rest of the event. Attendees could choose to race their friends using conventional iPads or Siemens Mobile Panels developed by DMC to control the the bluetooth racetrack.
The rest of the week involved unique presentations, training classes, technology demonstrations and finished off with a keynote by Eric Alexander and an after party at the Expedition Everest theme park!
DMC led four presentations throughout the week. Due to the great response, we've made the presentation slideshows available. Feel free to contact DMC with any questions regarding this content.
