Don't miss the all new PEI Managers Conference brought to you by RDM and MECO on March 9-11 at the Sheraton Gunter Hotel in San Antonio. This inaugural conference brings together the Service & Construction Managers Conference and the Purchasing & Inventory Managers Conference as one big event featuring keynote speakers, workshops, panels, micro-session breakouts and tons of time to network and connect with other attendees and key vendors. Managers from all levels will gain knowledge on key issues impacting the petroleum equipment industry.

While leadership is the overriding theme, attendees will gain many insights central to their daily operations. Topics will include: 

  • Managing the Supply Chain Disruption  
  • Service Tech Recruitment & Retention 
  • Environmental Compliance 
  • Jobsite & Driver Safety 
  • What Makes a Parts Department Successful? 
  • Hidden Costs & Values in Inventory Management 
  • Inventory & Warehouse Management for Service Vehicle Replenishment 

Key suppliers will be on hand to answer questions and showcase their latest products and services.
