• ISA announces an exciting slate of new and revamped events for 2019

    To engage and serve a broader range of automation professionals and the companies that employ them, ISA's events in 2019 will address multi-industry, multi-disciplinary challenges in automation, engineering, and manufacturing.

    "We're evolving away from technical conferences that focus on a single division or industry. ISA's slate of new, more laser-focused events for 2019 reflects the strategic need to approach solutions in a more comprehensive and integrated fashion," says Kim Belinsky, ISA's Manager of Divisions and Events. "We believe this year's events will better meet the needs of all ISA members and customers, be able to attract prospective Society members by introducing them to the valuable technical content ISA has to offer and, in turn, expand our volunteer base, and offer opportunities for increased sponsorship support and solutions.

    "As always, we're relying on the experience and expertise of our division members and other industry representatives to help develop the dynamic conference and technical programs, by recruiting leading industry experts and thought leaders," she points out. "Each event will be driven by the critical issues affecting end users, and in most cases encompass a multi-track, two-day experience with combined opening and closing sessions of topical interest and relevance to blended audiences. Similar to our past events, a range of more specialized technical tracks and panel discussions also will be offered."

    Belinsky added that ISA is also working on a new event model that "fast tracks" conference ideas and suggestions, in order to improve member and customer access to critical, in-demand content and topics. 

    ISA's new Business Development Director, Bill Furlow (bfurlow@isa.org), will be providing leadership in this new endeavor toward growing our ISA conference portfolio of offerings to include those critical must-haves for the automation communities we serve.
