Bunbury will host the Institute of Instrumentation Control and Automation Australia Technology Expo for the first time tomorrow, according to WA branch manager Cassandra Brennan.

The event will be held at the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre from 2pm to 5pm followed by a networking event.

Ms Brennan said the Expo would be an opportunity for people working in the industry to see the latest in technology.

“We are bringing in 45 exhibitors from all over Australia including people involved in the instrumentation industry,” she said.

“They provide services and equipment to large processing plants, mining companies, a lot of oil and gas industries.

“When you are talking about this industry you are talking about things that make other things work.”

Ms Brennan said there would be a special presentation based on CCTV.

“They provide CCTV cameras that can actually look at a site that is all on wireless technology and solar technology,” she said.

“So that means that an industry or a local government can decide on a hotspot of a high traffic area and the cameras can detect if there is too much activity in the area, alert somebody and then they can decide to take action.”

Ms Brennan said Bunbury was the perfect place to host the Expo.

“When people heard it was being held in Bunbury, the exhibitors just flew in the door because they are really interested in the region and what is happening,” she said.

“There is a lot of interest in the lithium down there as well as a lot of really interesting industries.

“It is mainly for people in the industry but I would encourage anyone to turn up.”

Ms Brennan said it was free to register and encouraged people to go to www.iica.org.au to book.
