Talk with the Emerson Experts behind the technologies and learn how their innovations can be put to work for you. Subject matter experts will present product and service roadmaps, host demonstration booths, and provide opportunities to speak specifically to your needs.


Network with your peers and other industry leaders and make the right connections. Throughout the conference, you can meet face-to-face with industry and process experts, speak with Emerson leaders, interact with fellow automation professionals and make new contacts.
