Customer-Run Event Features New Products from the Experion PKS Portfolio, More Than 50 Customer-Speakers from Around the World

PHOENIX, June 14, 2004 - Honeywell (NYSE: HON) kicked off its 31st annual Users' Group symposium today in Phoenix. With a record attendance of more than 600 participants, the process industry's most influential decision-makers, from 26 countries, will gather for the five-day event, which ends June 17.

The symposium is developed by and for industrial users of Honeywell solutions. A 12-member, customer-led steering committee determines the symposium theme and agenda.

"The Users' Group Symposiums bring great value to Honeywell customers," said Procter & Gamble's Lonnie Koeltzow, Chairman of the Users Group Steering Committee. "There are few venues that give customers a chance to get together, share experiences and have valuable conversations about the challenges we face on a daily basis. This symposium gives us that opportunity."

"Continuous input from customers has helped make Honeywell technology what it is today," said Jack Bolick President of Honeywell Process Solutions. "Through our partnerships, we've been able to deliver products and services that address the unique needs of our customers. We'll continue to improve, expand and evolve our technology as we cultivate more partnerships in the future."

Presentation topics at the symposium range from legacy system migration to alarm rationalization and management to the benefits of wireless technology. Representatives from Anheuser Busch, Georgia Pacific-Corp., DuPont Co. and many other global Fortune 500 organizations will deliver presentations on a variety of topics. The agenda offers high-level general sessions, networking sessions, and industry breakout sessions for refining/petrochemicals; pulp, paper and printing; power generation; chemicals; consumer goods; metal, minerals and mining; oil and gas; and life sciences.
