Fieldbus Foundation To Hold 2010 General Assembly In Houston, Texas

Annual gathering themed "Foundation Fieldbus - Asset Management Made Easy"

AUSTIN, Texas, January 29, 2010 — The Fieldbus Foundation today announced its 2010 General Assembly will be held on March 24-25 in Houston, Texas.  Planned for the Houstonian Hotel, this key automation industry event will attract the world's leading suppliers and end users of Foundation fieldbus.

The 2010 General Assembly, themed, "Foundation Fieldbus - Asset Management Made Easy," will include a comprehensive, end user-oriented agenda consisting of fieldbus project case studies and tabletop exhibitions.  The program on Wednesday, March 24, will feature a keynote address by a prominent industry executive, updates on the latest Foundation technology developments, and technical presentations by prominent fieldbus end users. The day will conclude with a reception for all attendees. The Fieldbus Foundation will conduct its annual business meeting on Thursday, March 25.

According to Fieldbus Foundation President and CEO Rich Timoney, Houston was a logical choice as the site of this year's General Assembly, since the U.S. Gulf Coast region is one of the most developed markets for Foundation technology, and arguably the central hub of the process automation industry in North America.

Timoney said, "The 2010 General Assembly program will highlight the advantages of Foundation fieldbus as a solution for improving plant asset management, reliability and economic performance.  Our technology is advancing to meet the needs of the process industries, including major developments such as Foundation for Safety Instrumented Functions (FF-SIF), control in the field, field diagnostics and wireless."

He added, "We are excited to welcome General Assembly attendees from around the world to our event in Houston."
