The preparations and plans are coming together for Emerson Exchange, which is in just two short weeks in Orlando, Florida (Sept 28 – Oct 2). I’m excited about some of the social media activities where you can participate, even if you’re not there in person with us.
The communications hub will be in Twitter. We’ve added a real-time search on the main Emerson Exchange page. You can see what others are saying at the event by keeping an eye on that page from time to time.
If you want to join in and add your thoughts, consider signing up for a Twitter account. I had put together a “Getting Started” wiki page for those who wanted to follow the DeltaV brand. One additional bullet is to add @EmersonExchange to your follow list. We have and will be spreading the word to have folks use the hash tag #EMRex for any Emerson Exchange-related posts. This makes it easy to do a #EMRex search to see what’s being said. There’s already quite a bit of communications happening!
A good example is the recent ISA Marketing & Sales Summit. The organizers promoted the use of the Twitter hash tag, #ISAMS. You can see links to presentations, pictures, comments on presentations. I wasn’t there in person, but able to get a flavor for the action. We hope the #EMRex tag can be just as valuable.
Borrowing ideas from other big events like SXSW here in Austin, several presenters will also have their own hash tags for their sessions. It’s a way to follow a presentation that you want to see if you’re not there, or see the comments from other participants in the session with you in real-time. As I mentioned in an earlier post, #DebJim will be the hash tag for Deb Franke and my, Gamechangers: How to Thrive in Chaos presentation being held on Tuesday 9/29 at 10 am, in room Sun 3 and repeated Thursday 10/1 at11 am in room Miami 2.
DeltaV brand manager, Rune Reppenhagen, will be presenting DeltaV InSight improves plant performance and loop monitoring capabilities at large process plant on Wednesday 9/40 at 1:15 pm in the Sanibel 3 room. He’ll be using the hash tag, #Rune.
This is the list that’s confirmed at the moment. I’ll update this post when I hear about more.
