Facility Owners will be able to "Roundup" some "Big IDEAS" in Dallas, Texas at the COAA Spring Owners Leadership Conference - May 4 - 6!
2016 Spring Owners Leadership Conference
When it comes to being "Big," Dallas, Texas has it covered. Texas hails as the second largest state in the nation (behind Alaska) and Dallas is the third largest city in the state (behind Houston and San Antonio). So it seems appropriate that facility Owners from around the country can plan to Roundup
some Big IDEAS
in Dallas, TX - May 4 - 6, 2016 - at the Westin Galleria Dallas!
Always focused on the facility Owner, the AIA-approved educational content provided will cover a variety of topics at a variety of levels, ensuring that there "truly is something for everyone." COAA will offer limited exhibit space for suppliers that are interested (first come, first served), and everyone is welcome to enjoy the delicious meals and networking opportunities that are included in the registration price.
