New ideas, right to your desk at Virtual Summit

The 2009 Plant Engineering Manufacturing Summit was a big hit with attendees, but not all of Plant Engineering’s worldwide audience could take advantage of this year’s event. Now, they can. Join Plant Engineering and industry experts on June 30, from 10 a.m. EDT to 3 p.m. EDT for the Plant Engineering Virtual Manufacturing Summit.

The 2009 Plant Engineering Manufacturing Summit was a big hit with attendees, but not all of Plant Engineering’s worldwide audience could take advantage of this year’s event.

Now, they can.

Join Plant Engineering and industry experts on June 30, from 10 a.m. EDT to 3 p.m. EDT for the Plant Engineering Virtual Manufacturing Summit. This event is not a typical Webcast; it is a fully interactive virtual event that incorporates online education, learning, live chat, active movement in and out of exhibit booths and sessions, white papers and other collateral resource centers, informative Webcasts and networking opportunities.

In short, it’s all of the experience you might have at the normal trade show, but without any of the tired feet or the travel.

“We believe strongly in the value of meeting our readers and discussing the issues face-to-face. We also know that’s not always possible for everyone,” said Plant Engineering editor Bob Vavra. “Technology has given us this new opportunity to connect directly with our worldwide audience through the Virtual Summit. It also gives everyone a chance to see the outstanding content and presentations we had available with the Manufacturing Summit in Charleston, along with some new events and content that will be unique to the Virtual Summit.”

The Plant Engineering Virtual Summit is sponsored by IBM, Infor and Schneider Electric.

The Virtual Summit will focus on the same four topic areas covered during the Manufacturing Summit:

  • Enterprise Asset Management

  • Energy and Sustainability

  • Workforce Development

  • Plant-To-Enterprise Connectivity.
