Businesses the world over are working to navigate an ever-changing technological landscape. The ones who figure out how to utilize the tools of digitalization to strengthen their organization will end up leading this “Industrial Revolution 4.0.” Saudi Aramco is bringing together representatives from their facilities (i.e., refining and petrochemicals) to discuss innovative strategies for achieving operational excellence in maintenance and reliability. Asset Performance Networks (AP-Networks) is proud to serve as a sponsor of the event.

As part of the conference, AP-Networks Managing Director, EMEA John Alkemade will deliver a presentation titled The Turnaround Excellence Paradigm – Delivering Predictable, Sustainable Business Performance.
