The Fieldbus Foundation Benelux Marketing Committee (FFBeneluxMC) welcomed over 30 delegates to its recent Foundation Fieldbus End User Conference held at the Grand Prix race circuit - TT Assen in the Netherlands on November 10, 2011.
The afternoon program included presentations and live technology demonstrations by end users and Foundation technology experts including:
The conference concluded with a drinks reception and buffet dinner for all participants offering an ideal opportunity for discussions and networking to continue beyond the formal program.
Taking full advantage of the unusual conference venue, FF Benelux had invited the first 25 registrants to arrive early to enjoy an organised tour of the Grand Prix track and behind the scenes facilities and included a unique opportunity to race on the track themselves!
Rob van der Zwan, chairman of FF Benelux, concluded "We were pleased to have the opportunity to use the newly commissioned Foundation demonstration unit to give attendees a first hand practical experience of specific functionality such as revision control, device replacement and diagnostics". He added, "Using established end users to share their own implementation experiences gives such a valuable insight to other end users and prospective adopters of Foundation technology. It was a particularly worthwhile conference in a very memorable venue!"
