Antares has always been committed to technology in the capital region as well as statewide.  We are excited to participate in the TEC-NEXT conference and especially to sponsor the Thursday morning kick-off breakfast. New technologies are changing and influencing heavy industry. South Louisiana is an industry-rich state, where new applications of technologies are already being deployed and more are being developed. According to an early Industry 4.0 report from McKinsey, manufacturers in the United States lag other nations in technology transitions in industry. There are already large conferences on this topic, but leaders from the petrochemical and chemical industry acknowledge there is a need for a more in-depth opportunity for engagement on this topic, where industry leaders can meet with their national and global counterparts in a small event setting to explore practices with each other, and interact with technology experts specializing in the Industry 4.0 space. There is an exciting opportunity to engage industry and technology leaders to see the latest, learn from each other, and envision what’s next.

Industry technology leaders from multiple manufacturing companies based in Louisiana are hosting this dynamic two-day event to gather experts from industry and technology for a high value, “TED” conference-like gathering. Local, national, global leaders from the chemical and petrochemical manufacturing industry will share what they are developing and installing currently as new technology-driven tools and processes, and technology leaders will participate.

Date:           October 3rd & 4th, 2019

Where:        The Shaw Center, 100 Lafayette St., Baton Rouge, LA 70801

Be sure to REGISTER NOW!

 We look forward to seeing you there and taking part in growing the technology industry in Louisiana.
