Digitalisation seems to be the new industry buzzword, but what does it actually mean for the process industry? A need to reduce costs drives our desire for increased efficiency; a new generation of digital technology claims to make this possible. Do the rewards of digitalisation outweigh both the risks and the expenditure? Digitalisation isn’t just about introducing new technology, it often means that systems can be rendered more vulnerable, processes have to be updated, work forces have to be trained, systems have to be successfully integrated and the data captured has to be processed. The question remains, which technology gives best return on investment?

Bookings are now open and you can book your place below.  You will be sent a link to join the virtual session in advance. For details of the remaining sponsorship and exhibition opportunities or for any other information, contact or call 01224 646311.

Join us to discuss the challenges of this increasingly complex industrial landscape at the second annual conference jointly organised by InstMC and SPE Aberdeen. A mix of presentations and workshops will form part of the virtual programme which will take place on 25 – 26 November 2020.


We are hosting a beer tasting, in association with Fierce Beer, at the end of the Conference, taking place on 26th November at 1620-1700.

This is available to the first 30 delegates who book places. If you do not wish to participate, you can opt out. This is an excellent way to learn a bit more about some of the more unusual beers on the market and it will be a bit of fun to finish off our conference.

More information including whether you have secured a place, will be sent nearer the time.

Our cancellation policy is as follows:

Please send cancellation details to the event organiser by email or by telephone.

Please inform the event organiser if you wish to send a replacement delegate, including their requirements (e.g. dietary, access etc). Please supply their full contact details so that any advance paperwork can be supplied directly to the replacement.
