In as slickly produced a setting as any Hollywood or Silicon Valley product announcement, Randy Underwood, vice-chairman of the Honeywell Users Group Americas, welcomed the largest attendance in the thirty year history of the Honeywell User Group. The attendance had to be limited by hotel space and room size at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge (known to the locals as "Xanadu") to 1200 people.
