Learn About IoT in Detroit March 26

We are on our way to Detroit! Registration is now open for the NFPA 2019 Detroit Regional Meeting, scheduled for Tuesday, March 26 at the John Wayne Lewis Center of Macomb Community College in Warren, Michigan. The meeting will begin with networking and business updates. Then, over breakfast, Andrew Johnson of ShelfAware will be presenting “Practical Deployment of Supply Chain IoT.”

Andrew will be addressing practical deployment of IoT in the industrial space, with examples from O-ring’s deployment of ShelfAware’s smart scale and their work in supply chain automation. There will be examples of IoT hardware that are inexpensive, easy to interact with, and very flexible.

This Regional Meeting is co-located with a Fluid Power Action Challenge event, which will follow the networking and presentation. In addition to the quality, casual networking these meetings are known for, you will also be able to observe the excitement of the Fluid Power Action Challenge firsthand.

NFPA Regional Meetings are free and open to everyone regardless of their geographic area. Members, non-members, customers, distributors, and suppliers—all are welcome! Register now and share this message with your colleagues.
