Thank you to everyone who attended PCC’s 2018 Oktoberfest – Tap into Technology Event! This year we moved Oktoberfest from our Germantown headquarters to the more spacious Washington County Fair Park and Conference Center in West Bend, WI.

The new location gave us the opportunity expand our Automation Fair showcase, offer additional training rooms and bring in much larger displays, including PCC’s Robotic Machine Tending SolutionSiemens was able to drive their “Driving the Digital Enterprise” showcase inside the venue.  Wago’s updated ‘Innovations in Action’ mobile showcase  was also on display inside the Automation Fair.  We had over 35 technical seminars and workshops for attendees to choose from in addition to our Keynote session on Digitalization presented by Chad Shaffer of Siemens.

At 4pm once all the training sessions were completed, we tapped into the beer and all attendees were given our memorable Oktoberfest steins.  The Oktoberfest reception was capped off with raffle prize drawings, favorite Milwaukee Pretzel Company pretzels, cornhole tournament and of course hammerschlagen.

We are very pleased to have spent a fun day of education, product knowledge discussions, training and sharing industry insights with you.  PCC plans to continue to grow this event and provide valuable training and education in the years to come.  We have set a tentative date for Oktoberfest next year on October 17, 2019.
