Cambridge, UK 10 October 2013: AVEVA today announced additional speaker, sponsor and agenda details for this years AVEVA World Summit. This global event is being held from 30 October 1 November in Boston, Massachusetts, USA where author Dan Roam will stimulate delegates imagination in an engaging keynote session.

This will be followed by the launch of several exciting new AVEVA products, technology insights and previews by senior AVEVA managers, and presentations by AVEVA customers describing their achievements with technology in the process plant, power and marine industries.

Responding to positive delegate feedback following last years successful event, AVEVA has evolved the Summit format to include focused, highly relevant agendas for the specific interests of plant Owner Operators (OOs), engineering contractors (EPCs) and shipbuilders. These agendas will explore asset efficiency, project optimisation and integrated shipbuilding strategies with topics that include: Engineering & Design for Lean Construction, Integrated Project Execution, Laser Scanning for Efficient Operations and Revamp, Maximising Information Value, Streamlining Handover, and Vessel Lifecycle Management.

Customer speakers will present practical aspects of the key Summit topics, sharing their technology and business experience on a wide variety of projects and asset operations from around the world.

AVEVA has been working in partnership with Microsoft to develop mobile applications that enhance the engineering and design process throughout the lifecycle of a project and the operation of an asset.

We have a very strong agenda for the 2013 Summit with an impressive list of customer speakers eager to share their experiences, explained Mat Truche-Gordon, Executive Vice-President Business Strategy and Marketing, AVEVA. From my perspective, this is what makes the Summit such a successful event. With the help of our customers we have created an environment in which we can learn from each other. The complexity of projects and assets is steadily increasing and engineering must operate across multiple disciplines, companies and geographies. The Summit has established itself as a place for decision makers to meet and discuss how technology can support them in meeting the challenges of the industries we serve. With the strong support of our customers and sponsors, I am looking forward to a very productive Summit in Boston!
