October 242005
PRAGUE, October 24, 2005 - Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced it is hosting its annual users group for a record number of 450 customers from Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The conference, held from October 24 -27 in Prague, Czech Republic, is one of seven user groups Honeywell holds worldwide annually and each event is a unique experience for attendees, as the conference sessions are defined by customers.

Customers will be addressing topical issues such as systems migration, safety and security and simulation at the conference, in order to determine new ways to improve performance in these key areas.

This year's agenda features customer presentations, Honeywell technology breakout sessions, topical panel discussions, an extensive demonstration and exhibit area, set in an informal atmosphere that encourages networking opportunities. Honeywell partners will play prominent roles at the conference, including representatives from BearingPoint, Pepperl and Fuchs and Spazio, the Milan-based architectural firm specialising in industrial architecture and control building design.

Numerous Honeywell customers from a variety of industries are scheduled to attend the event, including Shell, ExxonMobil, Borealis, Repsol, Preem, Sasol, MOL, and Akzo Nobel. The event is being sponsored by MTL Instruments, Pepperl & Fuchs, Intergraph and Stratus Technologies.

"The Honeywell Users' Group Conference offers a unique opportunity to draw together customers from different industries across EMEA to share ideas and best practices that will help improve business performance," said Paul Orzeske, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Process Solutions EMEA. "This event is all about our customers - their ideas and feedback are of fundamental importance in helping us continue to deliver better technology, service and lifecycle support to enhance their business performance in the future."

Honeywell chose to hold this year's event in Prague given its central location and its growing prominence in an expanded European Union.

"Honeywell is committed to investing in growth markets, and holding the conference in Prague underscores the strategic importance of Central and Eastern Europe to Honeywell's continued growth in the region," said Orzeske Key solutions, products and services that will be highlighted at the conference include:
