Monitor to Host Conference on Industry Disruption in Philadelphia
SEP 5, 2019 - 6:45 am
Monitor, the leading source of news and information for the equipment finance industry, will host its inaugural regional conference, “Staying Ahead of Industry Disruption: Equipment Finance Technology & Trends,” on November 6, 2019 at The Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia.
Featuring keynote speaker Deborah Reuben, CLFP, the event will provide networking opportunities and help professionals at every level build their awareness of new technology and trends. Attendees will come away from the event with a better understanding of potential impacts for their customers, employees and companies as well as the industry as a whole, which will enable them to make sound, future-ready decisions.
“I am excited to be part of launching this new program. As busy professionals, we don’t often have the luxury of taking time to learn about exponential technology advances or focus creatively on future possibilities,” said Reuben. “This event is an opportunity to briefly step away from the day-to-day. It’s a way to make time to focus intensely on what’s ahead for our industry, to think different, and ask new questions about what is possible.”
“Hosting conferences is a natural extension of Monitor’s current position as the leading provider of news, articles and information in the equipment leasing and finance industry,” said Lisa Rafter, publisher of Monitor. “This event will be the first in a series of regional conferences held in cities across the U.S. that allow us to deliver essential educational information about emerging technology capabilities, trends and innovative thought leadership about the future of the industry to your region so you don’t need to travel to us. We’re thrilled to host the first of these events in our nation’s birthplace, Philadelphia.”
Space is limited for this exclusive event, so attendees are encouraged to register today. Visit the conference website for more information, including a complete agenda and sponsorship opportunities.
