The Command Alkon Training & Technology Conference will be held at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside, November 12-13. The annual event is one of the industry’s largest information technology- and plant equipment-focused gatherings for ready mixed, manufactured concrete, cement, aggregate and asphalt producers. Participation in the conference continues to rise, Command Alkon officials note, with the unveiling of new technologies, such as MOBILE series computing applications; previews of the latest releases of core products; and, opportunities for users to network with peer producers and gain industry perspective.
Attendees can also mingle with product, equipment and service providers at the conference expo, or work one-on-one with service technicians and application experts in solutions labs. Command Alkon, JWS, and Integra users in attendance will represent most states and numerous countries from around the world. The event also includes preconference training workshops, November 10-11, where participants can benefit from advanced and in-depth training on specific product lines like COMMANDbatch, COMMANDqc, COMMANDconcrete, Apex and Integra, or hear from industry experts—among them 50-year industry veteran Jim Wagner, who has officially announced his retirement at year’s end. Registration for the conference will open this summer at a dedicated site, thequarry.ning.com, or through a link on the www.commandalkon.com home page.
