How to get into the PROFIBUS Conference without paying

To help UK industry in these difficult economic times PROFIBUS UK is offering some valuable financial incentives to join the PROFIBUS Group including a limited number of day delegate places at the 2009 PROFIBUS and Profinet User Conference FREE OF CHARGE. These places are offered on a first-come, first-served basis to companies joining The PROFIBUS Group at the Regular or higher levels in the months prior to the Conference.


?To make the offer even more attractive we are waiving our usual £100 joining fee over the same period? said UK Chairman Bob Squirrell. ?That?s an initial saving of around £290 plus the potential for further saving every time a member books places on our accredited PROFIBUS, PROFINET and OpenPLC training courses held in the UK!?


Following the trend for its rapid acceptance in many industries worldwide, PROFIBUS is quoted as the specified protocol for future projects in most of the UK?s water companies. This means that in most cases, new and refurbishment projects will be PROFIBUS based: and the water industry represents one of the most active sections of the UK instrumentation project market for 2009. Relevant framework suppliers are expected to provide PROFIBUS based solutions and use Certified PROFIBUS designers and installers for their projects.


The discounted membership offer will therefore be of particular interest to companies in and associated with the water industry as members are eligible for discounted rates on the necessary staff training courses, including the Certified PROFIBUS Installer, Commissioning and Maintenance and Engineer courses.


The PROFIBUS and Profinet User Conference in June 2009 will provide an opportunity to exchange experience and meet other companies in the industry, plus hear the latest developments in PROFIBUS techniques and equipment. Readers are urged to hurry to take up this offer as it can only apply while User Conference places are available. Further details of the Conference can be found at
