PTDA 2018 Industry Summit

October 17-20, 2018
The Broadmoor
Colorado Springs, Colo.

More than 700 participants enjoyed The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, providing an exceptional atmosphere for networking, education and fun at the 2018 Industry Summit.

The week started with productive volunteer committee and Board meetings. While these volunteers were hard at work, other attendees were outdoors enjoying golf, fly fishing or tennis all in support of the PTDA Foundation.

Seeing old friends and making new connections was the theme at the Welcome Reception. Attendees were surprised with special guests included a wolf named Spirit, Delilah the owl, and other birds of prey. 

The networking continued as participants listened to powerful speakers who provided insight on disruption and how to create opportunities, discussed the future of IIoT, and provided solutions to acquire good leadership skills. In addition, The Beaulieu Report offered an economic update including industrial production highlights and developments in end-user industries to guide you through the next few years.

While taking a break from learning, attendees got active and enjoyed some friendly competition while assembling bikes for kids in low income communities during the annual charity event supporting Wish for Wheels.

The 2018 Industry Summit wrapped up on Saturday. The day started with MD-IDEX where 650 one-on-one meetings took place, providing distributors and manufacturers with a formal opportunity to discuss business and issues of mutual interest. Satturday evening was all fun with an après ski-styled closing event complete with a variety of games and firepits to enjoy the adult s’mores.

Enjoy this look back at an amazing week:
