Why you should be at Smart Industry 2018

Here at Plant Services, we strive always to provide actionable insights in our magazine and online – tips, tools and best practices you can put to use today, as well as thoughtful perspectives on industry trends and original industry research into the topics most pressing to you and your organization.

But we also believe that a vital complement to this is in-person education. Being able to hear from industry experts and early adopters about their experiences implementing new technologies and processes is invaluable. That's why I'm so excited about Plant Services' Road to RxM (prescriptive maintenance) track at the fourth annual Smart Industry conference in Rosemont, IL, later this month.

From Sept. 24–26, you'll have the chance to hear from—and ask questions of—leading industry professionals who are achieving unprecedented gains in reliability and proactive asset management for their organizations. Amid all of the talk about the digital transformation of manufacturing, these professionals are walking the walk.

If you want to hear from your peers and other industry leaders how they're moving the needle on asset management practices and strategies, you belong here. If you want a better idea of what skills your team and organization will need to succeed in tomorrow's digital manufacturing environment, you belong here. If you want to save your organization money and win buy-in and resources for the initiatives you'd like to tackle, you belong here. Check out the full agenda.

Join us at the Loews Chicago O'Hare hotel for Plant Services' Road to RxM track at the fourth-annual Smart Industry conference (the 2018 theme: "Activate Your Digital Strategy"). In addition to networking events and education sessions, you'll have the chance to take the CMRP exam and attend the first Influential Women in Manufacturing breakfast, honoring Putman Media's 22-member inaugural class of Influential Women in Manufacturing.

I'll be there. I hope to see you there, too.
