MANAMA: The Saudi Arabia Section of International Society of Automation (ISA) and DMS Global have signed an agreement to organise a key conference.
The ISA Automation Conference and Exhibition Europe, Middle East and Africa will be held from December 7 to 11 at the Sheraton Dammam Hotel and Towers, Saudi Arabia.
Under the theme "Experience the Future", the event promises to be the only full-scale conference and trade show in the Europe, Middle East and Africa that will be dedicated for process automation.
The event will focus on measurement and control of latest technologies through a five-day technical conference, product exhibition and training courses.
"This conference is a major milestone for the society as it will be a unique opportunity for local professionals involved in the automation field to learn, exchange experiences and network with peers from all over the world," ISA Saudi Arabia section head Luay Al Awami said.
The event will be attended by regional and international experts and decision makers, who will share their experiences, visions and solutions to the challenges of measurement and control in complex industrial environments.
The five-day event will include a technical conference, exhibition, training, workshops and technology debates.
"There are many mega events in the energy sector that are too general," said DMS Global president and chief executive Mohammed Loch.
"The events division of DMS Global aims to facilitate the gathering of industry leaders and experts for specific communities to give them more focus to achieve their objectives.
"When it comes to process automation there is no association greater than the ISA, so we are thrilled at the opportunity to support them in promoting their field," he added.
The event promises to attract hundreds of delegates from various end-user companies and vendors across the Middle East and beyond. It also offers a unique opportunity for automation professionals, equipment manufacturers and service providers to share and exchange, experience and explore the latest products and most recent innovations and technologies.
