Emerson Global Users To Exchange Automation-Driven Strategies During Annual Conference

August 112004
Process manufacturers and Emerson experts to share ideas and practices in weeklong program of forums, workshops and exhibits

AUSTIN, TEXAS (August 11, 2004) – The 2004 Emerson Global Users Exchange Conference will be held October 25-29 at the Gaylord Texan™ Resort & Convention Center in Dallas, Texas. The theme, “Bringing the Best Together,” sets the tone for the weeklong conference where process manufacturers will share ideas, practices and proven solutions with fellow users and Emerson experts in an intensive program of business forums, workshops, short courses, and exhibits.

“With a focus on forward direction and technology, this year’s conference has an expanded scope that includes all Emerson Process Management divisions,” says John Gardner, executive sponsor-Emerson Exchange and senior vice president of Process Systems and Solutions. “Attendees will hear from their peers how Emerson PlantWebÒ digital plant technologies are providing breakthrough results for manufacturers globally across all process industries.”

The conference will feature over 200 workshops and 25 short courses plus keynote speakers, management roundtables, executive sessions, and an expanded technology exhibit hall. Currently, nine industry business forums are planned to include chemicals, refining and petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals and life sciences, food/beverage and consumer products, pulp and paper, oil and gas, power and utilities, metals/mining/cement/glass, and contractors.

The full conference agenda is available at www.EmersonExchange.org.

“Throughout the conference, attendees will explore experiences during engineering, project management, integration and commissioning, operations and improvement, and maintenance and sustaining phases of plant life,” says Gardner. “Users will discuss comprehensive strategies for automation and the future viability of their plants.”

Participants in previous Emerson Exchanges, such as Normand Raymond of Fibermark, describe the experience as “very exciting” and highly informative. “We are sending more people to the next conference because there is more valuable information than any one person can absorb,” Raymond says.

An editor from a major industry trade journal stated in an editorial about the conference, “there’s a good chance you’ll come back from it with ideas that can increase your operation’s productivity. Thus, you’ll get a solid return on your investment in time and money.”
