U.S. version show in 2007


The 2ndedition of Electric Automation America (EAA) —the North American trade exhibition focused on drives, motion, controls, and automation technologies for industrial applications—has been announced for spring 2007 by organizer Messe Frankfurt Inc. EAA’s inaugural event, held in May 2005 in Rosemont, IL (suburb of Chicago), attracted 91 exhibitors, 1,305 attendees from 14 countries, and had “excellent turn out” for its extensive conference program. However, the number of exhibition hall visitors fell short of expectations.

Decision to hold the next event in spring 2007 followed research and extensive consultation with exhibitors, attendees, sponsors, industry partners, and the Conference Advisory Council on the best possible format for the next show. “While the second EAA had originally been planned for 2006, the majority of exhibitors, attendees, and sponsors felt that an early 2007 date in the Chicago area would be the preferred choice,” says Messe Frankfurt.
