ABC’s Industrial Users Summit, Oct. 22-23 in San Antonio, Texas will feature expert speakers who will provide discussions, best practices, and presentations on topics including quality, safety and workforce development. In addition, Mike Casten, founder of Construction Concepts, will provide a unique, thought-provoking perspective on whether the projected skilled labor shortage exists or whether management and construction planning systems fail to maximize productivity. The goal of the summit is to bring together industrial construction users and merit shop contractors to discuss common issues that affect the way projects are planned and delivered and demonstrate how merit shop contractors deliver value to customers. The Summit also gives ABC member contractors an opportunity to understand what owners need in the planning and delivery process. A more detailed agenda, including speakers and session titles, and registration for the event can be found on the Industrial Users Summit website .
