Siemens announces 2011 Automation Summit in Orlando
05/04/2011ATLANTA – Siemens Industry, Inc. will host its 2011 Automation Summit at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts in Orlando, Fla., from June 27-30. The summit will provide engineering and operational professionals, automation and operations management and senior-level executives with end-user learning opportunities covering the complete spectrum of automation--from process and discrete to motion control and drives.
The 2011 Automation Summit follows its theme of "Navigating the World of Automation," by offering more than 50 breakout sessions featuring presentations and best practice case studies from end users and industry experts. Other activities include networking events, a technology showcase, live demonstrations and hands-on training sessions to enhance the user community experience.
"While we plan to educate end users about Siemens portfolio of automation, instrumentation, motion control, software and MES solutions and technologies, our primary objective is to provide a forum for the community to share information and determine how each person can best implement these recommendations and strategies at their respective sites," says Raj Batra, president of the Industry Automation Division for Siemens Industry, Inc.
New to the Automation Summit is the Technology Cafe where users can experience the breadth and depth of the Siemens portfolio and meet with Siemens experts in an informal, hands-on and personalized environment. The Summit will also feature Siemens Measuring Success tour, a 53-foot tractor trailer where participants can interact with Siemens process instrumentation, analytics and controls for a customized and meaningful experience.
Craig Russell, chief design and project delivery executive for Walt Disney Imagineering, will be the keynote speaker. Russell serves as the co-executive leader of the creative delivery arm of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. In his role, Russell is responsible for the design, engineering, production, installation and project management for Imagineering Theme Park and Resort projects globally.
Siemens will also announce its Customer Excellence Awards during a ceremony at Epcot, where guests will be treated to a front-row view of the spectacular fireworks show.
