History of the Exchange

Sept. 22, 2008
The Emerson Global Users Exchange is a non-profit organization chartered to provide a forum for the open exchange of non-proprietary information among the users and Emerson Process Management, with an emphasis on the enabling technologies, solutions and services of Emerson Process Management's PlantWeb architecture.
It was started in 1987 by Fisher Controls under the name Provox Users Group Meeting and had fewer than 200 attendees. In 1992, Emerson Electric acquired Fisher Controls. The Fisher and Rosemount Control Systems businesses were combined into the Fisher-Rosemount Systems division. This name change led to the user meeting to be called the Fisher- Rosemount Systems Users Group in 1993. By 2002, the conference was changed to the Emerson Exchange under the leadership of both John Berra and John Gardner. In 2003, the organization became multi-divisional across Emerson Process Management, and the meeting became known as the Emerson Global Users Exchange.
