With the information-packed week of learning, sharing and networking opportunities that the Emerson Global Users Exchange represents, one might well ask: What more could one possibly want? Well, for some Exchange attendees, no jet lag or pricey intercontinental airfare would be a good start. And for those who live in Europe and the Middle East, Emerson Exchange just got a whole lot closer.
Scheduled for May 29-31, 2012, in Düsseldorf, Germany, the first Emerson Exchange outside the United States will take place at the Hotel Maritim, near Düsseldorf International Airport (DUS), which provides direct flights to many European cities.
The format for this slightly abbreviated three-day event closely follows the established Emerson Global Users Exchange model, with workshops, presentations, industry forums and technology exhibits. "There's been much enthusiasm among users, and we already have recruited 12 user board members to help guide the event," says Marleen Kuipers, director of marketing for Emerson Process Management in Europe.
This week's Emerson Global Users Exchange in Nashville formally kicks off the "call for papers" period for the Düsseldorf event. Importantly, users who have a presentation accepted will have their Emerson Exchange registration fee waived.
