The seminar content is designed to be vendor-neutral, addressing key topics of interest for salespeople involved with control and instrumentation products. In particular, the seminars aim to dispel myths about FOUNDATION technology and provide hard facts and data salespeople can rely upon.

Fieldbus Foundation Global Marketing Manager Larry O'Brien commented, "With the growing adoption of FOUNDATION fieldbus by process industry end users, there is a corresponding need to train salespeople in this advanced enabling technology. We are responding to the needs of the automation community by conducting fieldbus sales force training events at major industrial locations throughout North America."

He added, "Our comprehensive half-day seminars are ideal for busy professionals seeking to expand their knowledge of FOUNDATION technology and learn more about its business value proposition in a wide range of industrial markets. FOUNDATION technology is increasingly being adopted in migration and modernization projects as well as grassroots facilities. The business value proposition of the technology is more powerful than ever."
