Honeywell 2007 HF Roundtable
The HF Roundtable is a biennial, three-day industry event that Honeywell hosts for its customers. The HF Roundtable includes various topics and updates on safety, security, and medical issues, and is a great networking opportunity where customers can learn from other HF users and industry experts.
Honeywell's 2007 HF Roundtable was held June 12th -June 14th, 2007 at the beautiful Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. More than 170 Honeywell HF customers, spouses, presenters, and industry suppliers attended.
This year's Roundtable was different by design - the world of HF is undergoing dramatic change, and we thought it important for our customers to gain an external perspective of their industry. We invited speakers from its vast network, including HF users, the US government, industry suppliers, and Honeywell's own R&D group. Customer representatives from each HF end-use also spoke on their specific HF application. The overwhelming positive feedback to the Roundtable suggests that customers truly appreciated this broad range of speakers and topics.
The Roundtable was certainly not all work… On Wednesday afternoon, during the "activity" portion of the event, most Roundtable attendees could be found touring the grandeur of the Biltmore Estate, playing golf, fly fishing, or taking a relaxing float trip down the French Broad River. Meals were an excellent time for attendees to meet the speakers, members of the Honeywell team, and one another, especially during the elegant dinner on Tuesday evening and the Southern country buffet, complete with a New Grass Band and bonfire, on Wednesday evening.
We would like to extend a sincere thanks to everyone who attended the 2007 Roundtable and helped make it a success. Hard to believe, but planning for the 2009 HF Roundtable will begin shortly. The planning team would appreciate additional feedback or suggestions for 2009, especially thoughts on location for the event. Please send all comment/suggestions to Dr. Matthew Stershic at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those who were unable to attend this year's event, copies of all Roundtable presentations are posted on the password-protected portion of the Honeywell HF website (click on "Technical Services and Training," then "Customer Resources"). If you have not already done so, you will have to sign-up for a password.
2005 HF Roundtable
The 2005 HF Roundtable was held June 21-23 at the Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Virginia and was a huge success. This symposium attracted 119 participants from 38 different HF user companies coming from sites all over the US, Canada and Mexico.
Highlights from the symposium included the segment on Honeywell's Geismar Security Showcase, which allowed our participants to view the many security upgrades that have been implemented at the site. Participants also found Dr. Mike MacKinnon's update on specialized HF medical treatment of great interest. The session on Materials of Construction in HF Service was also very beneficial to our customers.
