In 2018, CiA members have established the CiA Marketing Group (MG) CANopen FD. Scope of this CiA group is to spread awareness and knowledge of CANopen FD in different application areas. The MG evaluates and initiates marketing activities, such as fairs, conferences, and training events in order to present CANopen FD topics, services, and products to decision makers and developers. A CANopen FD demonstrator is shown on CiA's exhibition stands and helps to explain the benefits of CANopen FD to interested visitors. Of course brochures, and if requested, even videos with a short technical overview or more marketing-oriented content can jointly be published. Technical website content as well as technical articles on CANopen FD in relevant media complete the marketing activities of the MG CANopen FD.
