Registration Now Open for 2019 Top Shops Conference
Registration is now open for Top Shops 2019. The third-annual event combines technical presentations and benchmarking data with peer-to-peer discussion and technology displays all aimed at delivering practical solutions and business strategies for machine shop owners, executives, engineers and managers.
Registration is now open for Modern Machine Shop’s 2019 Top Shops Conference, which takes place September 9-11 in Cincinnati, Ohio, at the Duke Energy Convention Center. “Instead of focusing on uber-conceptual, sounds-good-on-paper, ‘bleeding-edge’ concepts, the conference offers presentations and panel discussions about advanced, yet practical tactics, strategies and shopfloor processes that can be applied now at attendees’ shops,” says Derek Korn, the magazine’s executive editor and conference’s technical director. “These include leveraging additive manufacturing in a shop setting, machine tool monitoring and data collection, cutting tool management, and best practices in areas such as business strategies, workforce development and human resources.”
Chief Data Officer Steven Kline Jr. will once again present trends at this year’s conference.
Gardner Intelligence took the results of all the previous Top Shops surveys, which includes more than 2,000 shops, and used sophisticated modeling techniques to determine what really drives high performance at machine shops. Chief Data Officer Steven Kline, Jr., will present trends spotted over the survey’s nine editions.
The annual Top Shops event combines technical presentations and benchmarking data with peer-to-peer discussion and technology displays all aimed at delivering practical solutions and business strategies for machine shop owners, executives, engineers and managers. The Top Shops objective is to provide actionable insight that attendees can implement directly on the shop floor.
