Who is Space UG for?

The User Group is designed for our community of SIMATIC PCS 7 users, made up of End Users, Solution Partners and EPCs. The group includes representatives from all of the major Process Industry sectors within GB&I and provides the opportunity for all stakeholders from management, operations, project management, maintenance and engineering to network, collaborate, share their knowledge and learn about the latest industry trends and topics. The opportunity to connect digitally is provided through the SPACE UG LinkedIn community and we actively encourage discussion and idea sharing in this forum.

What is the Space UG annual conference?

The SPACE UG annual conference is the culmination of the groups activities and is designed over its 2-day duration to provide all attendees with a wealth of opportunity to engage and develop a collaborative community of best practice, in an open and relaxed environment. Our users shape the direction and content of the conference by contributing their experiences of using the SIMATIC PCS 7 platform in the form of breakout sessions. It also provides the opportunity to get up to speed with the latest technology trends, industry topics and innovations in our platform.
