Fabiola Pasquel Chalini, Procurement Senior Director, Anheuser-Busch InBev

“This has been an incredible event. It’s great to engage other professionals that work in the same category (MRO). MRO has always been overlooked, but can have the greatest impact on the business. This is a great chance to learn more solutions and meet new people in the industry. Please do this again and I’ll bring my counterparts.”

“I have looking high and low for years trying to find conferences specific to MRO, but to no avail. It is great to meet other MRO Buyers and hear about some of the same challenges I have.

David Boren, Director of Materials, IM&S, Americas, Global Category Team Lead, ABB

“The ProcureCon MRO staff, Alliance National Expositions, and the Hilton Fort Worth teamed to present this inaugural event. One of the most focused, professional, content specific conferences of the year. Exceeded all expectations. All in the MRO area will benefit by this “one of its kind” event. No doubt the potential to grow to an arena sized event in coming years.”

Spence Webb, Business Development, ValuePoint Material Solutions

“This is the best single event I have attended that is focused just on MRO. Many networking opportunities were presented. Key contacts from many organizations were in attendance. I can see opportunities for additional topics, presentations, and discussions.”
