Users driving digital transformation.

We always enjoy these user-group events because they offer the opportunity for Editors/Journalists to meet those who use equipment rather than those who make the instrumentation. Their focus is not necessarily the same as that of the manufacturers. We have been attending Emerson events (#EMREX) for many years now and they do have a special atmosphere. Indeed the user groups of each manufacturer have a different feel and in some ways present the ethos generated by the ethos of the supplier company.

The worldwide Emerson user community "at the heart of the industrial digital transformation" will host two Emerson Global Users Exchange conferences "to collaborate, network and solve the challenges in achieving Top Quartile performance – representing the top 25 percent of peer companies in operations and capital performance." Professionals from industries who provide the backbone of everyday life including oil and gas, power generation, water and wastewater, life sciences, refining and chemical share better performance solutions that can improve earnings up to 15 percent.

Emerson Global Users Exchange: The Americas
Registration is open for the Americas annual conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, Oct. 2-6, 2017. The event theme is ‘Powering Collaboration’ and will include keynotes, technical paper presentations, industry forums, workshops, technology roundtables, ‘Meet the Experts’ sessions, exhibits, awards and Emerson technology roadmaps. The event also features a keynote presentation by world champion adventure racer Robyn Benincasa and an address by Mike Train, executive president, Emerson Automation Solutions, as well as an evening networking event at US Bank Stadium – the future site of Super Bowl LII. (Mike Train was at the joint NIBRT/Emerson Biopharma event in Dublin last month - see our report!)

Emerson Global Users Exchange: Europe, Middle East and Africa
The Europe, Middle East and Africa biennial conference will be at The Hague, NL, March 7-9, 2018. The Hague conference theme is ‘Connect, Communicate, Create’ and will build upon the increasing success of its predecessors, allowing delegates an even greater opportunity to network with peers and explore new industry opportunities to expand digital intelligence to the entire manufacturing enterprise. (The last European Meeting was held in Brussels last year (2016) - see our report!)

For Users, By Users
The Emerson Global Users Exchange is a user community committed to extracting the most from their automation investments and enables global industry to achieve Top Quartile performance in the areas of safety, reliability, production and energy management. Shaped by users, for users, the event is managed by an Emerson customer board of directors, comprising users from a range of industries who formulate the conference content and guide the direction of the users group at large.

Presentations from both events will provide delegates peer-to-peer best practices to extract the greatest value from technology investments, solve engineering challenges, drive improved performance, dramatically enhance safety and compliance, reduce capital and engineering costs, increase profitability through effective energy management, and create successful system migration and lifecycle management paths.
