2019 Update Conference - Registration Now Open!

by Renee Merker | Dec 12, 2018

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to attend PMPA’s 2019 Update Conference – February 7-9 in Phoenix, Arizona.  As PMPA’s President, as well as a member of the Update Conference Committee, I’m here to share their excitement about this year’s program. 

The PMPA Update Conference embodies the most important benefit for why you belong to this Association.   We network.  We share knowledge.  We discuss challenges.  We create solutions.  And we forge new relationships.

The Committee has assembled a great program for 2019, focusing around the theme of “Sharing the Knowledge.”  Come and hear firsthand from your peers as they share their successes, failures and growth tactics for rebranding, cultural renovation, knowledge transfer and employee engagement.  You will also have an opportunity to sit down with other members during roundtable sessions to talk in depth about some of the issues you deal with on a daily basis.  Brian Beaulieu of ITR Economics will share what is “Around the Bend” for the manufacturing industry in the next two years.  And see how your company compares to those in Modern Machine Shop’s Top Shops report as Steve Kline, Jr. of Gardner Business Media and PMPA’s Miles Free dissect the results and trends.

Bring your key people to this event and expose them to new contacts, innovative ideas and fresh perspectives.

Conference Registration is now open!  Make plans to join us at the newly-renovated Renaissance Phoenix hotel in the heart of vibrant up-and-coming downtown Phoenix.   Make your Hotel Reservations here!   

Visit the Update Conference website for additional program details or contact Renee Merker at PMPA for questions – 440-526-0300.

We look forward to seeing you in 2018!
