International Automation Professionals Day

28 April 2024


Join us in recognizing automation professionals around the world who work diligently to advance the safety, security and efficiency of the manufacturing/supply chain operations and critical infrastructures that all modern economies depend on. YOU make our lives easier.

ISA was founded on 28 April 1945, an occasion we are thrilled to commemorate each year. International Automation Professionals Day began as a celebration of our founders' legacies and their long-lasting contributions to the industry. Now, we get to witness the legacies being created by those who have dedicated their career to this ever-changing industry. 

To our members, volunteers, staff and the entire automation community, thank you for helping us create a better world through automation.

Join in on the fun!

Throughout the month of April, be on the lookout for our annual #IAPD social media content on ISA's Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and X channels. At the end of the day on 28 April, we will choose three winners who will receive the following:

1st Prize

Up to 55 USD in ISA Merchandise

2nd Prize

Up to 40 USD in ISA Merchandise

3rd Prize

Up to 30 USD in ISA Merchandise

Everyone can participate!

Make sure to include #AutomationProDay or #IAPD in your post.

Post videos or photos of yourself at work, studying or engaging in automation in any way! Feel free to be as creative as you would like to be.

We want to know how you believe automation is changing the world for the better.

A few ways you can do this include showing yourself working as an automation professional, a day in the life as an automation student, photos/videos of yourself wearing ISA gear, participating in or attending an ISA event or just interacting with others in the field of automation.

The social media contest is open to students and professionals at any stage in their career!

And don't forget to include #AutomationProDay or #IAPD in your posts!
