Meet us at Achema Next Week!

Myself, President of Fieldbus Foundation Rich Timoney, and Fieldbus Foundation Director of Technology Dave Glanzer will all be at the Achema trade show next week in Frankfurt, Germany.  Achema is probably the biggest automation trade show in the world focused on the global chemical industry. The Fieldbus Foundation will be at Hall 11, Stand B29. We will once again be participating in the Field Communication Lounge with FDT, HART Communication Foundation, Profibus, and OPC.  

Fieldbus Foundation will also be bringing our FOUNDATION for ROM demo to Achema, so you will be able to see firsthand what we are doing with FOUNDATION for ROM and how it can benefit you.  We will also be holding a press conference related to recent developments in FOUNDATION for ROM on Tuesday June 19th at 11 AM in the GRANAT room of Hall 11 on the ground floor. Hope to see you there!  Many of our supplier members will also have a presence at the Field Communication Lounge, from smaller companies like APAT and FINT to Pepperl+Fuchs, Turck, Stahl, Endress+Hauser, Emerson, Honeywell, Siemens, Yokogawa, and more. 
Fieldbus Foundation is also part of FDI Cooperation LLC, and FDI will be having a press conference in the KORAL room, also on the ground floor of Hall 11, from 10-11 AM.  
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.
