Rockwell Automation and its extensive PartnerNetwork™ present ROKLive 2022 from August 30 – September 1, with practical sessions focused on enhancing machine performance, optimising plant operations, and empowering a digitally connected plant
Rockwell Automation, the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and digital transformation, in collaboration with its extensive PartnerNetwork™, is hosting a large-scale automation industry event in Sydney Olympic Park, from August 30th to September 1st.
ROKLive 2022 is an in-person event that will bring together operations, maintenance, engineering and technology leaders to connect and learn about the industry’s latest innovations and solutions.
“With more than 70 interactive sessions utilising demo equipment – and a diverse range of Rockwell Automation’s partners – it provides people working with automation technology an invaluable opportunity to see the latest products in action, and what future problems they might be able to solve,” said Anthony Wong, regional director, South Pacific, Rockwell Automation.
Partner exhibitors to showcase integration and service expertise
ROKLive will be further enhanced by active participation from Rockwell Automation’s extensive PartnerNetwork.

Largest Rockwell Automation in-person event in years
“Globally, there are big challenges for industry, from supply chain issues, through to global conflicts, and rising cost of parts. The current and future generations of engineers and technology leaders will need to use every resource available to them to navigate these uncharted waters. One of our aims with ROKLive is to give these leaders a first-hand look at some of the latest and greatest automation technologies,” said Wong.
ROKLive will commence with keynote speakers, including former Facebook CEO for Australia and New Zealand, Stephen Scheeler, who helped guide Facebook’s unprecedented rise from quirky Silicon Valley start up to media and technology titan. Other key topics to be addressed throughout the three-day event include cybersecurity, digital engineering, industrial innovation, industrial networks, maintenance evolution, motor control, operations management, process control, production automation, safety solutions, smart devices and visualisation.
“ROKLive has been designed not only to be informative, but it’s also structured as an outstanding networking opportunity, with the chance to connect with peers across a broad range of industries, including food and beverage, manufacturing, mining, oil and gas, infrastructure, water and wastewater, and many more,” said Wong.
“There are interactive sessions to match all kinds of job specialities and interests involving automation and digital connectivity, in an event that is unmatched in the industry for its scale and in-depth content,” he concluded.
