July 15, 2020The producer of the Best Practices 2020 EXPO & Conference has announced the event devoted exclusively to optimizing on-site utilities powering modern plant automation has been postponed until November 2-4, 2021. The event will take place at the same venue as the one planned for 2020 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center in Chicago, Illinois.
Rod Smith, Producer and Publisher of Best Practices EXPO & Magazines, said the Best Practices 2020 EXPO & Conference was postponed due to continued uncertainty associated with the COVID-19 virus.
