ATLANTA, June 11 -- After exceeding attendance targets by more than 50 percent at its Answers for Industry (AFI) Event in Long Beach, Calif., Siemens Energy & Automation, Inc. announced today that it will be hosting another event in Houston and is looking at other potential cities in which to host similar events.

Throughout the three-day event, attendees will also have a chance to visit the Siemens Product Showcase, a 12,000 square foot technology exhibit where they can experience the latest in Siemens products, systems and solutions in an informal, hands-on environment. Siemens technology experts, partners, distributors and senior executives will also be on hand to discuss how they can employ Siemens solutions for their specific applications to help increase productivity, reduce costs and strengthen competitiveness.
