Introduction

The only and largest international Project Controls event/conference dedicated to its advancement and with the objective of providing significant practical and theoretical awareness on its process, tools and techniques to its stakeholders. This show is the most important event for those working within the spectrum of Projects Controls not just from an educational perspective but also in terms of building a network and exploring career opportunities.
