  1. How can I promote my company? 
    There are several ways to promote your company through your Automation Alley membership. Sponsoring an Automation Alley event is a great way to get your company's name and logo in front of the region's most influential technology leaders. Or, members can promote their own events on our Events Calendar. Post a press release to our website to promote your company's news, and it will be included in our "News @ 8" email. Members can also host one of our Morning Member Mingles or Matchmaker Networking events at their facility.

    We have two fantastic options for hosting a member networking event. Our popular Morning Member Mingles average 50-80 attendees and provide the host company with an opportunity to showcase their facility, equipment or programs in an informal networking session. Our quarterly evening networking events, or matchmakers, typically draw 100-150 attendees and allow the hosts to engage with guests in a social after-hours get-together. Both events include a 10-15 minute introduction and presentation opportunity, as well as the chance to offer facility tours and/or demonstrations. Contact events@automationalley.com or 248-457-3200 for more details.
