Many of our vistors will remember our report, entitled #EMRex tweets rule, on last year’s Emerson Global Users’ Exchange and our enthusiasm because as a neophite in what is known as Twitterland, and indeed on social networking sites, we were able to participate vicariously or virtually from our office here on the wild west coast of Ireland.
We doubt that they will top the automation duel presented by Peter Zornio at this years event, but knowing the ingenuity and imagination of Emerson’s marketing people I wouldn’t care to put a bet on it!
In any case it is time to start planning to attend this years event. Again it is on during the week prior to the ISA’a Automation Week in Houston so it might be an idea to drive from San Antonio to Houston in time for the excitement there. (We speak in total ignorance of the geography of Americas biggest state and so are in ignorance of how far these two citys are from each other but you do have a weekend to make the trip!)
Emerson users who register for the Emerson Global Users Exchange conference by August 16 will save 29 per cent on conference fees. Registration for the 2010 conference – to be held from September 27 to October 1 in San Antonio, Texas, USA, is now available online.
Emerson Exchange offers one of the industry’s most comprehensive collections of user presentations and workshops on technology selection and application, investment justification, and automation strategy. The 2010 conference includes more than 300 sessions on topics from improving energy efficiency to increasing yields, improving agility, and making the most of automation investments.
“In today’s challenging economy, it’s more important than ever for automation professionals to build our knowledge, improve our skills, and increase our value,” said Aaron Wood of Evonik Degussa Corporation, who is chairman of the Emerson Global Users Exchange. “This year’s conference provides exceptional opportunities to learn about best practices, tips and tricks, proven solutions, and emerging technologies.”
Led by users for users, the 2010 Emerson Exchange will enable valuable information exchanges among process manufacturers, end-users, and Emerson experts. In addition to workshops and short courses, the conference includes keynote speakers, industry-specific forums, expanded Emerson Educational Services courses, product road map sessions, and extensive technology exhibits by Emerson and complementary suppliers.
