Twenty years years comms!

June conference to mark 20 years since The PROFIBUS Group launched in the UK

The PROFIBUS UK Group was founded at the C&I Show in May 1993 (Remember C&I?). 20 years on, they're still going strong and celebrating with a one-day Conference to be held on 26th June 2013 at The Stratford Manor Hotel, Stratford-upon-Avon (GB).

Karsten Schneider
Profibus Internation Chair

The event will concentrate on the real issues of implementation, maintenance and management of PROFIBUS and PROFINET systems and will deliver a mixture of presentations, demonstrations and hands-on practical sessions suitable for a wide variety of experience levels. It will cover latest developments in these technologies for factory and process automation including safety, motion control, wireless implementations and integration with the Internet and MES. The event will be supported by a tabletop exhibition.

"The conference is designed for engineers, managers and indeed anyone concerned with the real issues of implementing fieldbus and/or industrial Ethernet technologies" said organiser and Group Chairman, Bob Squirrell. "We've invited some top speakers and some very able engineers to present the facts and demonstrate the systems, including new PROFIBUS International Chairman Karsten Schnieder who will be presenting the Keynote Address."

There will be plenty of opportunities for networking during the event or at the (optional) Celebratory Dinner the evening before where delegates will have the opportunity to meet some of the the industry's experts.
