  1. How can I promote my company? 
    At Automation Alley, we believe collaboration is key to the success and growth of our region. We partner with organizations and companies throughout the year on a number of events in the technology and manufacturing arenas.

    Our Tech Takeover event series on Industry 4.0 readiness allows companies to share their expertise with the business community. Topics include robotics, additive manufacturing, advanced materials, the cloud, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence and big data, the Industrial Internet of Things and modeling, simulation and visualization. By sponsoring the event at our headquarters, companies receive brand exposure through marketing and are seen as thought leaders by delivering the presentation.

    Other opportunities to partner on events include Morning Member Mingles and quarterly Evening Member Networking events, both hosted at member facilities throughout the year.
