Global Petroleum Show 2019: Engineering Smarter Energy Solutions

Few topics in our modern world are as vitally important as energy. That’s why every year at the Global Petroleum Show (GPS), tens of thousands of industry leaders assemble to display new technologies and discuss how we can harness them to create a smarter, more sustainable future. This year, Avnet was in attendance and hosted a number of innovative technology demonstrations in our booth.

We proudly showcased our Smart Edge Agile and our Azure Sphere, as well as several other connected technologies that demonstrated the huge potential of Internet of Things and artificial intelligence in shaping the energy industry. If you couldn’t make it to our booth, then you’re in luck, because we’ve compiled some highlights just for you. Enjoy!
