Your company will be exhibiting at IMTS, what is it that makes this an important event for your company?

IMTS is an important show for Rittal as this is the nation’s largest platform for us to gain exposure into the Industrial world. With thousands of decision makers, engineers, and plant operators attending the show from around the world, Rittal has the opportunity to demonstrate our full product line with the business unit extension Rittal Automation Systems together with sister companies EPLAN and CIDEON. By presenting our full value chain of Rittal’s innovative products, EPLAN’s engineering optimization software, and Rittal Automation System’s automation solutions, we can help our customers achieve the next level in added value.

IMTS has many educational sessions & Demo’s, is your company involved in any of them this year?  

We will have a speaking session during the 2018 Integrated Industries Conference on September 11th at 11:00 – 11:55am in room W196-C. Title of the presentation is “Looking at the industrial internet of things (IIoT) with the addition of artificial intelligence (AI), Industry 5.0”

 

When you get a chance to walk the exhibit hall floor yourself, what is it you will be most interested to see?  Any educational sessions you plan on attending?

When I get a chance to walk the floor, I'm excited to see all of the new industry innovations. I think that SME's Smart Manufacturing Hub and the AMT Emerging Technology Center will provide ground-breaking innovations. I plan on attending our speaking session.

 

When you book a booth for a tradeshow like this what are your expectations and what does your company hope to accomplish at the event?

Rittal is a global leader in industrial enclosures and accessories, including climate control and power management systems for industrial, data center, outdoor and hybrid applications as I mentioned.  In North America, we are continuing to develop our brand and an event like IMTS allows us to highlight our cohesive value chain message, and showcase our innovative world class technology to some people who may not be aware of Rittal.  We know a successful presence at IMTS will assist us with achieving our expectation of raising our brand awareness, penetration of our products into the market, and continuing to develop and support our vital distributor partner network.
