The PROFIBUS Group was founded at the C&I Show in May 1993. 20 years on, they”re still going strong and celebrating with a one-day Conference to be held on 26th June at The Stratford Manor Hotel, Stratford-upon-Avon..
The event will concentrate on the real issues of implementation, maintenance and management of PROFIBUS and PROFINET systems and will deliver a mixture of presentations, demonstrations and hands-on practical sessions suitable for a wide variety of experience levels. It will cover latest developments in PROFIBUS and PROFINET technology for factory and process automation including safety, motion control, wireless implementations and integration with the Internet and MES. The event will be supported by a tabletop exhibition.
“The conference is designed for engineers, managers and indeed anyone concerned with the real issues of implementing fieldbus and/or industrial Ethernet technologies” said organiser and Group Chairman, Bob Squirrell. “We”ve invited some top speakers and some very able engineers to present the facts and demonstrate the systems, including new PROFIBUS International Chairman Karsten Schnieder who will be presenting the Keynote Address.”
There will be plenty of opportunities for networking during the event or at the (optional) Celebratory Dinner the evening before where delegates will have the opportunity to meet some of the the industry”s experts.
The Delegate rate for the Conference is just £99 + VAT (members of PI UK £90 + VAT) to include admission to all sessions and the exhibition, with refreshments and lunch provided.
