Antibes is in the French Riviera along the Mediterranean coast — the views were spectacular, the food was great, and the hospitality was fantastic. The conference center facility was well-suited to host the Plugfest and even though it did not have an attached hotel, there was ample lodging within walking distance to meet the needs of the Plugfest attendees. I am looking around at all the people entering the large ballroom at the Embassy Suites in Lincoln, NE. As I wait for the buzzer that will announce the first minute rotation, aling someone I have never met, from somewhere I have never been, to come to my station, I am nervous and excited and unsure what to expect.
While I may sound like a desperate bachelor at a speed-dating event, I assure you that is not the case. Plugfest is an event held twice a year, where the best and brightest minds in the ISOBUS industry come from around the world to test their offerings, checking for compatibility with other ISOBUS equipment manufacturers.
If my quick mental count is correct, this Plugfest is lucky 13 for me.
I first attended in Austria in September and have been at each Plugfest since … except in when I had to miss the spring event due to a freak medical issue. In the seven years I have been attending, AEF has almost doubled in membership, hundreds of products have been AEF certified, and Plugfests have lengthened from two to three days each.
Sometimes when I write a blog, I try to be a little clever.
And if ever there was a good time for me to write a clever blog, this may be that time. For one, this Plugfest is celebrating the 10 th anniversary of AEF as an organization. Secondly, I have an idea of how I could make my blog post clever by incorporating an Italian flavor to celebrate the Plugfest location.
We are by no means product-naming experts around here, and this one seems aggressive. I normally try to get these out sooner, especially since the Fall Plugfest is not too far away….
I have ly explained the mechanics of a Plugfest, so go take a look at some of my old blog posts if you want more info on that. The initial schedule I saw for this year showed 66 different pieces of equipment that will be tested during the three days of the Plugfest.
