Learn the Critical Success Factors of a World-Class Turnaround and Improve your Game Plan

It is more important than ever to have the skills and strategies in place for a turnaround that meets budget and schedule. A plant shutdown that goes off track cannot only break your maintenance budget, but can have a huge impact on your production targets.

Attend the 17th Annual Shutdowns Turnarounds Superconference and learn how others are managing these and other common obstacles. Discover new processes, share solutions, and put what you learn directly into practice. As many older workers retire, this is a great opportunity for your newest team members to attend and benefit from the knowledge and expertise of seasoned professionals in the same room at the same time.

Our speaker faculty will share their exclusive insights, anecdotal evidence and ongoing war stories to help you set up and deliver a world-class turnaround.
