The Field Communication Lounge

 

Overview

The Lounge at ACHEMA 2015, creates a single exhibit area for visitors to learn about and experience the latest in field communication and integration technologies and discuss how they are used to deliver powerful results that may quickly improve a company’s profitability.

 

Participating organizations incude: FDT, FieldComm Group (comprised of FOUNDATION Fieldbus, FDI and HART), ISA100 Wireless Compliance Institute, and Profibus & Profinet International.

 

The booth features several opportunities for members of these organizations to participate. They include the following:

 

Company Kiosk
Member Kiosks are essentially rented booth space for a member company. Members can rent from 1 to 3 kiosks and use that space to display products that use any of the technologies represented in the booth.

 

Technology Kiosks/Wall

Each of the participating organizations display technology demonstrations using technology kiosks or on the “Technology Wall”. These kiosks are different for each organization for complete details of each kiosk see the technology kiosk tab and select the organization. The Technology Wall will act as the unified messaging center that brings together all of the technologies represented under the FieldComm Group. The intention is to deliver a message of unified systems based on open standards protocols.

Company Kiosk

 

Company Kiosks allow members to display all products using the associated technologies in a single location. You will receive a panel / whiteboard prior to the fair. You can then design your own content to display on the panel such as graphics, devices, monitor, etc. If you require new boards, please provide a shipping address during registration. You can indicate where you would like the blank board shipped during the registration process. The panel will be mounted on a pedestal / kiosk and your company logo will be displayed above. A surface (counter top) for placing a notebook, brochures, etc., and a lockable cabinet element with an integrated brochure holder are also provided. The price of each kiosk is €5,600.

 

Your company kiosk can consist of one or more boards. However, the maximum number of boards in a row is 3 and the minimum number of boards in a row is 2.

 

Please note: International shipment incurs high shipping expenses we would have to add to your account. However, for €150 we can print your graphic and laminate your panel and organize shipment to ACHEMA Fair. All you have to do is provide high resolution graphics to us with sufficient time.

As a sponsor, you can provide a device to be included on this display. For a complete list of Technology Kiosks/Wall topics and displays, see below. If you do not require an individual company kiosk for your product, this option provides a cost‐effective means of displaying your product. Your products can be part of a technology demonstration that educates visitors on the unique capabilities of your products with regard to that display concept.
