The Chairman's Message
The 2013 Emerson Global User Exchange conference in Grapevine, Texas was an outstanding success. From initial feedback received, the conference exceeded attendee expectations by delivering excellent content, providing access to industry experts at a great venue, the Gaylord Texan.
The Exchange Board of Directors is very appreciative to all presenters, guest speakers, exhibitors, instructors, and Emerson staff involved. These experts in process automation, engineering, business management, information technology who conducted the many sessions and exhibits hall displays as well as coordinated and organized the conference really emphasized this year's theme, Combining the Elements.
Users participated in and gained significant value from:
- 350 Short Courses and Workshops
- 7 Industry Forums
- 5 Technology Forums
- 17 Emerson Education Services Courses
- 10 Emerson Product Roadmap Sessions
- 16 Meet the Experts Sessions, and,
- An evening of networking and fun in the AT&T Stadium (formerly Cowboys Stadium)
The Board of Directors have already started planning for the 2014 Emerson Global Users Exchange Americas conference to be held at the Gaylord Palms. Look for the "Call for Presentations" in January and submit your abstracts early if you would like to present at next year's conference.
And, be sure and mark your calendars for next year’s conference:
Mark your calendars!
