Join us at the ISEA 2017 Executive Summit – an exclusive event with opportunities for executive-level networking and leadership development as well as updates on economic trends and business strategies. The event will be held at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in Tucson, AZ.

The ISEA Executive Summit serves as a powerful resource and networking opportunity, designed to keep you up to date on the industry landscape as you chart a course for the future. Leaders in business strategy, e-commerce and economic trends will convey valuable and thought provoking information, sure to stimulate conversation with your industry colleagues.


Our line-up of dynamic speakers:

  • Alan Adams, CEO, Navazon Consulting, and a former Amazon executive, on how to win with Amazon and what to consider before you take action, and why manufacturers can’t afford not to have an Amazon strategy.
  • Futurist Eric Garland counsels 3M, Dow, DuPont and other companies. Mr. Garland will speak about the technological, demographic and cultural changes in the next 5-15 years, and help guide executives and leaders in integrating that knowledge into better future decisions.
  • John Felmy was Chief Economist at the American Petroleum Institute (API), and will speak about the upstream and downstream energy economy, and what it means to the safety equipment industry.
  • Brian Beaulieu, ISEA’s favorite economist returns for another accurate and entertaining forecast of the domestic and international economy, and the new normal following recent world events such as Brexit and the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.

Join us to honor retiring ISEA President, Dan K. Shipp:

The ISEA Board of Trustees will host a retirement celebration in honor of ISEA President, Dan K. Shipp, on April 4, 2017 at the Coyote Corral, Loews Ventana Canyon Resort. Mr. Shipp is retiring after 24 years of service as ISEA’s leader.  Learn More
