ABC members in the health care and industrial segments should plan to attend the Users Summit, Oct. 8-9, in St. Pete Beach, Fla., where construction users and contractors will come together to discuss industry safety, quality and workforce issues. Final panelist for this must-attend event are now posted on the Users Summit website.

During the Users Summit, attendees will discuss common issues that affect the way projects are planned and delivered, as well as demonstrate how merit shop contractors deliver value to customers. The summit also will give ABC member contractors an opportunity to understand what owners need during the planning and delivery process.

Based on the success of the past two Users Summits focused on the industrial segment, this year the event has expanded to include owners from the health care segment. The program’s format allows all contractors and owners to come together for general sessions, networking functions, and segment-specific breakout sessions where issues unique to the health care and industrial industries are addressed.

Past Users Summit attendees include representatives from large industrial construction firms such as Cajun Industries, NOVA Group and Kwest Group, as well as major construction users such as GE Aviation, LG&E and KU Services Co, Hospital Corporation of America, Valero and ISN Software Corporation, which is an owner representative for a number of large industrial contractors.

This exclusive event is limited to 150 participants and includes a mix of users and ABC contractor members, such as health care and industrial users, chief executives and senior management. In addition, ABC industrial contractor and sub-contractor members and industry supporter will serve as sponsors for the event.
