WHY ATTEND BEST PRACTICES?

The BEST PRACTICES EXPO & Conference event is designed to educate and provide tools to the people who make industrial utility projects happen at a factory. Factory personnel (General Managers, Production Managers, Energy Managers, Plant Engineers, Maintenance Managers) will convene here to identify Key Performance Indicators, learn to measure them and identify projects to reduce kW and H2O consumption per unit of product produced.

All Levels of expertise from the compressed air, vacuum, blower and cooling system industries will attend to either share or enhance their knowledge of these systems. Sales engineers, in particular, will be trained on techniques to help their industrial accounts embrace these opportunities. Specifying engineers and utility incentive program representatives will also attend to learn to advise their industrial accounts better.
