The Project Controls Expo is an international Project Controls 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.

The above objective is achieved by bringing practitioners, employers, customers and suppliers together to share knowledge, experience, best practices, career development and software tools under one roof to hear managerial presentations from some of the industry’s best experts.
