How Can We Help?
Who will be attending the Opening Night Dinner?
The Texas Consilium Opening Night Dinner on Monday, May 13 is a unique addition to the Smart Manufacturing Summit (SMS) event for 2019. We expect several hundred Texas manufacturing and other business leaders to attend, in addition to many of the expected 250+ national SMS event attendees. We expect most Texas manufacturing companies represented to have annual revenues of $10 million to $1 billion+ and be represented by their CEO, President or other top leader.
Here are the latest attendance plans as of late April 2019. Additions and other changes will occur since registrations will continue until the week prior to the event, subject to space limitations.
