What’s Happening at MAX Spark 2018?

Are you looking for the edge in ERP? At Spark you can learn from experts, connect with other users, and play with the next generation of MAX. We'll kick the event off on Wednesday, February 21st with a welcome reception in the evening, followed by two full days of MAX education. For those of you seeking even more, we're also offering a supplemental day of MAX training on Saturday, February 24th. 

Come discover how the next generation of MAX couples modern technology with tried and true APICS manufacturing principles. Make no mistake, this will be a MAX conference you won't want to miss. 

Why MAX Spark?

Great Educational Content Delivered by Experts

In all, we'll have 48 total sessions aimed at delivering the top notch education you need to get the most from MAX. All sessions will feature the next generation of MAX, so you'll get to see it in action throughout the conference. We'll also be discussing and using the new standard of reporting. 

Valuable Breakouts 

  • 30 conference breakout sessions that will cover a variety of topics, including the next generation of MAX, Business Intelligence, Engineering, Inventory Control, Planning and Accounting. All sessions will identify additional points of integration so you can minimize overhead. 

A Manufacturing-Specific Keynote Address

  • No fluff at this conference. We’re focused on bringing you content that you can use with an APICS Certified Master Instructor as our keynote speaker who understands the problems facing today’s manufacturers and is ready and willing to share some useful insight.

Supplemental MAX User Training (additional fee required)

  • In addition to the breakout sessions that are included with your registration, we’ll be offering a supplemental training day after the main conference closes for any users interested in more in-depth MAX training courses. This extra day will include 18 different sessions to choose from with topics like Capacity Management, Data & Data Structures, Importing and Exporting Data and Reporting.

Network with other MAX users and employees

  • As a MAX user, you’re part of a community. MAX Spark will offer the opportunity to network with the MAX team and your fellow MAX users.
  • Spend some quality time talking shop with MAX consultants and take away valuable (and maybe even some entertaining) insights into MAX and the world of manufacturing.
