ARC Advisory Group is having a series of panel discussion and presentations in conjunction with NAMUR and ZVEI called "Automation Dialog". I will be participating in a panel titled "Operational Excellence" on Wednesday at 2 PM. You can get more info about the Automation Dialog series of talks here.
I write a lot about the value of trade shows. Achema is one of the last truly great trade shows for the process automation business. It only comes around every third year and it attracts a wide range of automation suppliers, equipment vendors, engineering firms and solution providers, educational institutions, and, most importantly, end users. We look forward to attending.
