There is no other opportunity in 2020 where stakeholders in the PHCP and PVF supply chains can come together with colleagues and friends at one location to network, learn and have fun. The annual ASA NETWORK event attracts over 600 attendees every year and we anticipate a tremendous turn out in 2020 since the event is being held in Chicago Oct. 7-9. What a great city for fun and what a great location for ease of travel.

This year’s NETWORK2020 is being held at the Fairmont in Chicago – Millennium Park. At Chicago’s most desirable address, the Fairmont offers contemporary accommodations with every imaginable comfort for the sophisticated traveler. Anchored by 400+ acres of protected park space in the heart of downtown Chicago, the hotel enjoys pristine views of Lake Michigan, Millennium and Grant parks and the famous Chicago skyline. 

As always, there will be a great lineup of speakers. We will be kicking off the event with Ron Karr, who will be helping you differentiate your organization from the competition, increase market share, and increase value to your shareholders and investors by incorporating The Velocity Mindset™. We will be closing out the event with the always anticipated industry forecast provided by ASA Economist Chris Kuehl, managing director of Armada Corporate Intelligence. In between, we will be holding sessions covering topics including: turning buyers into investors, what your business needs to know about social media and onboarding top talent, building a high performance culture, and running a world-class family business. It is probably hard to believe we can do better, but we have additional speakers we are talking to, so stay tuned for updates.

Of course, the event is called NETWORK for a reason and networking sessions are scheduled throughout the event. Networking opportunities include:

  • Association of Independent Manufacturers’/Representatives, Inc. (AIM/R) Reception
  • Women in Industry Reception
  • Emerging Leaders Reception
  • Industrial Piping (PVF) Division Breakfast and Evening Reception
  • Plumbing Division Breakfast and Evening Reception
  • Attendee Roundtable Discussions  on Industry Issues
  • Wholesaler-Distributor and Vendor Appointments

Whether you are national, regional or a one-branch shop, companies in the PHCP-PVF industry value the opportunity to connect with their supply chain partners. Regardless of company size, NETWORK2020 is set to be the most successful NETWORK event to date and an event you simply cannot miss!
