ABC is proud to announce the second annual Industrial Users Summit – a gathering of industrial construction users and the merit shop contractor community for a day of best practices and sharing around critical issues that affect the way a construction project is planned and delivered.

Through a series of best-practices, ABC contractor members will demonstrate how projects are delivered safely, ethically, profitably, on time and with a qualified workforce, in cooperation and partnership with their customers. 

Industrial customers and contractors face a common set of issues during the life of a project. This summit is designed to give you a chance to tackle those issues collaboratively by:
  • Providing education on key issues affecting users and contractors, with a focus on problem solving and identifying best practices.
  • Showcasing the value ABC members bring to a project.
  • Creating a forum that allows the group to leverage the extensive knowledge from both users and contractors to improve the delivery of construction services.
This exclusive event is limited to 125 participants and includes a mix of users and ABC contractor members such as Industrial Users, Chief Executives and Senior Management, in addition to ABC industrial contractor and sub-contractor members, and industry supporters who will serve as sponsors for the event.

LOCATION
The summit will be held at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort and Spa. The room rate is $245 per night. You may reserve your room online or call the hotel directly at 210-276-2500. Be sure to reference that you are with the ABC Summit.

The housing cut-off date is Friday, September 26. Reservations can be cancelled up to 24 hours without penalty. Check-in is at 4 pm and check-out is at 11 am for Summit attendees only.
