The program will conclude with a reception featuring keynote addresses by Irene Lewis, SAIT president and CEO, and also a prominent end user. Richard Timoney, Fieldbus Foundation president and CEO, will deliver a recap and closing comments.
EUC Western Canada co-chairman Ian Verhappen expects attendees to come away from the EUC meeting fully informed about the latest Foundation fieldbus news. "With foundation staff members on hand bringing everyone up to date on the latest developments, plus end users sharing their experiences using the technology, we should be able to address any and all questions for anyone considering getting on the fast track to fieldbus," he said.
