It’s that time of year again! We’re bringing the best across the industry together for Maximize 2016, our annual customer summit in San Francisco. Register now to secure your spot for the show.

Why attend? If you’ve been before, then you already know it’s the premier field service event of the year. But for the new-comers, our 2016 program is chock full of breakout sessions, customer panels and roundtables to usher in a new era of field service. Under the theme “The Future of Field Service is Now,” the conference will run five session tracks covering service operations optimization, systems performance and integration, metric-driven business outcomes and products and strategy.

But don’t take it all from us. We have a formidable lineup of notable keynote speakers that will be on stage at this year’s conference include:

  • Luke Williams, Author and NYU Stern School of Business marketing professor: Luke will discuss the benefits of shaking up the status quo and how to get there through the three principles of motivation, mindset and method.
  • Heather Ashton, Research Manager, IDC Manufacturing Insights: Heather will touch on best practices for digital and field-service transformation drawing from more than 15 years of experience studying the intersection of technology and manufacturing.
  • Chris Anderson, Founder and CEO, 3DR: Former WIRED editor-in-chief and now CEO of 3DR will showcase the connection between drone technology and field service.
  • Dave Yarnold, CEO, ServiceMax: Dave will discuss why companies should embrace modern tools and technology to transform field service and ultimately prepare your organization for tomorrow’s innovation.

Our other keynotes and breakout sessions will feature ServiceMax users sharing insights, strategy and best practices from their real-world enterprise and manufacturing use cases. Executives from our customers at GE Healthcare, BD, McKinley Equipment and MilliporeSigma will be on hand. Our Maximize 2016 program is made possible thanks to the support of our 22 sponsors, including PTC, AccentureCapgemini, ForefrontAppirioCallidusCloud, Panasonic, and ThingLogix.

We’re also bringing back the MaxChoice Customer Awards Program, an opportunity for our customers to showcase the innovative ways they’re using the ServiceMax platform to create meaningful business outcomes. Nominations will be accepted through May 13. Enter yours today.
