More than 500 control system integrators and industry suppliers from around the globe will gather in San Francisco on Apr. 24–27 for the Control System Integrators Association (CSIA) 2018 Executive Conference.
Themed “Growth Through Innovation and Sound Business Practices,” this year's conference offers a dual track approach focused on taking the next step in “transformative business models” while maximizing growth by using CSIA best practices.
Economist Alan Beaulieu, president of ITR Economics, will open the conference with his latest economic outlook for manufacturing, providing an outlook for attendees to use to guide their companies forward. In addition to the educational sessions included during the conference, CSIA will offer a two-day intensive training workshop on best practices implementation just prior to the conference, on Monday, Apr. 23 and Tuesday, Apr. 24. Those attending the conference will have opportunities for networking, including the annual industry expo, awards banquet and a closing reception. The CSIA Fun Run/Walk will be held again this year, along with other special events and tours of the San Francisco area.
