Focus on enabling smarter, safer, more sustainable operations.

EMREX EMEA goes on-line - offers new insights and innovations that are driving performance improvements for manufacturers.

One of the events we enjoy every two years is the Emerson EMEA User Group meeting held every two years somewhere in Europe. The last was held in the manageable city of Den Haag in the Netherlands which we reported on in our piece, "Connecting, communicating and creating in Netherlands," in 2018. Scheduled originally for Milan last year it had to be postponed at short notice because of the initial surge of COVID 19 then devastating Northern Italy. We little knew what was before us when Milan was again pencilled in for the delayed event this time in 2021.  Few realised the disruption that would be caused by this terrible invisible virus. The learning curve has been very steep and the scientific battle to develop a vaccine impressive. We are now allowing ourselves to hope but in the meantime we have become used to alternative methods of doing business. So EMREX is going on-line!

Emerson Users Exchange Live 2021 Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) will highlight practical innovations and solutions to help industrial manufacturers achieve performance improvements by running their operations smarter, safer and more sustainably. The 2021 event is being held virtually because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thousands of delegates will be able to attend more than 120 online presentations taking place live over three days, from March 29 to 31.

The conference will feature more than 70 case studies presented by end users. These will provide vital insights into how Emerson customers have achieved measurable business value, increased safety and enhanced their environmental sustainability through the adoption of easily scalable innovations such as remote collaboration, predictive maintenance and personnel safety-focused monitoring. In addition, there will also be deep-dive perspectives and the latest insights from automation and software experts and manufacturing leaders on how to rethink processes, identify new efficiencies, reduce costs and reach higher levels of performance.

Keynote speakers will include Jos Berkien, automation technology manager at global specialty chemicals company Nouryon; Richard Mortimer, vice-president of engineering at BP; and Frank Wouters, global lead for green hydrogen at engineering company Worley. Emerson keynote presenters include Roel van Doren, president, Emerson Europe, and Vidya Ramnath, president, Emerson Middle East and Africa.

“At Emerson, our goal is to drive innovation that makes the world healthier, safer, smarter and more sustainable, and this objective will be reflected across the content of Emerson Users Exchange Live,” said Roel van Doren. “The global health crisis has accelerated the need for digital transformation strategies and technologies to keep the process and manufacturing industries running safely, and Emerson Users Exchange will focus on how these strategies and technologies can be leveraged to optimise operational performance.”

Free to Emerson customers, Emerson Users Exchange Live offers both live and on-demand product technology roadmaps, meet the expert sessions, subject matter expert office hours, user case studies, industry forums and product demonstrations, all offering opportunities for Emerson customers to stay engaged and up to date on the company’s latest technologies and services, as well as future innovations.

The Emerson Users Exchange Live follows the company’s recent users event in the Americas, Exchange Virtual Series, which began in November 2020 and continues through to March 2021.
