Join us for CMTrends 2019!

By bringing people together, connecting and inspiring them, we can create the potential for positive change.

This event addresses CM as practiced by various organizations, in various environments, and in various life cycle phases. Hear first hand from the thought leaders who lead and made 649C, The Configuration Management Standard, possible: our instructors A. Larry Gurule, Rick St. Germain and Michael Treadwell. CMTrends does not focus on a single CM methodology, you will also learn about the latest internationally accepted and utilized “Best Practices,” related standards, and much more.

This will be your opportunity to meet and network with delegates from across the globe in similar fields and interests.

Who should attend? Enterprise Leadership, Enterprise functional directors and managers, CM/DM/QA/PM/SE/LCLS/SR and related professionals from all environments including hardware, software, information technology, facilities, asset management and services.

Wherever you work, whatever you create, build, deploy, or maintain... CMTrends has something for you.

To ensure every audience member is able to take away knowledge they can use in their workplace, CMTrends offers twice-daily Question and Answer sessions where you can ask the speakers their opinions, advice, or clarification on your most pressing issues. CMTrends also provides all attendees with an electronic copy of presentations to take back to the work place, to make it easier for you to pass along your knowledge gained.


At CMTrends 2019 you will be submerged in unique and informative presentations, group question & answer sessions, networking breaks, and time to speak with exhibitors. It’s only 2.5 days long, but if you’re able to stay the whole week, you can also attend a discounted class where you will grow your knowledge base even more! With so much you can gain in just one week, why not attend?

"I can use all the info from these briefings to perform better CM within my organization."
