PMPA Members,

On behalf of the Management Update Committee, I would like to invite you to the 2019 Update Conference, February 7 – 9, 2019, at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona. By popular demand, we have once again kept the program schedule to two full days on Friday and Saturday, kicking off with a Welcome Reception on Thursday evening.

This year’s theme “Sharing the Knowledge” stresses the importance of the people in your organization who ultimately create the culture and drive your company forward.

Here are a few highlights…

  • Sessions on creating and maintaining your company culture, engaging your employees and how to make sure that the transfer of knowledge happens smoothly.
  • Benefit by hearing from some of our own members during two panel discussions on Friday.
  • Brian Beaulieu shares his current economic forecast - find out if the good times will continue.
  • A return of the popular ZIPLINE speed networking session for enhanced networking.
  • Learn about Modern Machine Shop’s Top Shops – Industry Results and Trends and review the PMPA Benchmarking survey results.
  • We have listened to your feedback - the 30-minute Roundtable sessions will now be lengthened to 45 minutes, so that more in-depth discussions can take place.

And finally, I would like to mention the value of being a Conference Sponsor. These sponsorships make available additional opportunities for increased visibility before and during the Conference and on the meeting app. Your continued support of the Conference as a sponsor is so important to PMPA meetings.

The recently renovated Renaissance Phoenix Hotel is located in downtown Phoenix within walking distance to restaurants, entertainment and sporting venues, and is only 4 miles from the airport.

What can be better than taking a break from the cold in February and spending a few days in Arizona where the weather is (and our fellow members are) always warm and sunny!

The conference is being held earlier than usual, so don’t delay – register today!  Hope to see you there!
