“Learn, Lead, Unleash” Theme Sets The Promise of 2006 Emerson Global Users Conference

April 042006
User presentations and workshops to focus on experience with Emerson enabling technologies and services

AUSTIN, TEXAS (April 4, 2006) – Mark your calendars. The user-led board of the Emerson Global Users Exchange has announced that plans are under way for the assembly’s 2006 conference to be held October 2nd – 6th at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee. The board has set the theme of Learn, Lead, Unleash to convey the promise that this year’s conference will deliver through its continuing focus on educational and leadership sessions for all levels of process manufacturing professionals.

User presentations and workshops will update colleagues on experience with technology selection and application, investment justification and automation strategy.

“The conference continues to grow in value and attendance every year,” said Scott Pendegrass, Control Systems Engineer for ExxonMobil and 2005 Chairman of the Emerson Global Users Exchange. “2005 was our largest and most successful to date, drawing a record attendance of 1,814 process manufacturing professionals from 46 countries. The extensive program included three keynote speakers, two management round tables, nine industry business forums, 253 workshops, 47 short courses, and over 40,000 square feet of technology exhibits.”

Feedback was overwhelmingly positive and congratulatory with participants describing the Emerson Exchange conference as “a very well spent week, full of opportunities to learn” and a “tremendous amount of information in one location … better for my personal use than a major trade show.” One participant’s comments reflect the goal of the Emerson Users Exchange — to provide “a good opportunity to see new products, learn how others approach projects and obstacles, and network.”

“Again this coming October, users will discuss comprehensive automation strategies to take advantage of today’s technologies and ensure the future viability of their plants,” says Jim Cook, Degussa Corporation and incoming Emerson Exchange Chairman for 2006. “Attendees will hear from industry leaders how Emerson’s PlantWebÒ digital plant technologies are providing breakthrough results for process manufacturers worldwide. They will share best practices, technical innovations, application successes and quantified results, and received valuable insight into new technology developments and directions.”

In addition to the annual conference, the Emerson Global Users Exchange coordinates and produces activities such as special interest group meetings, newsletters, and communications related to Emerson products and solutions.

Members of the Emerson Exchange actively participate in product development and application discussions with Emerson’s engineering and management staff, providing feedback at conferences and other meetings. Users Exchange participant comments, conference agendas, registration and other details are available at www.EmersonExchange.orgext. Early registration is encouraged.
