Namur as a user association of automation in the process industry has many member companies, which have production sites and service activities in China. Therefore it was a logical step that Namur decided to hold a conference in Shanghai in November 2009. The conference turned out to be very successful and there were 88 registered participants from 19 member companies. The second Namur conference in China will take place in Shanghai on November 18th to 19th 2010. Pepperl+Fuchs, the sponsor of the European Namur general meeting in 2009, will also be the sponsor of this event.
