"Our general sessions are developed in collaboration with mission critical industry thought leaders to determine the topics that have the most impact on day-to-day facility management operations," said Wendy Dietzler, director of education for the Critical Facilities Summit. "From there we create exclusive panel sessions that offer a broad range of perspectives and insights to explore some of today's hottest topics in the mission critical community."
