Preferred Distributors from more than 20 countries specializing in a wide range of industry verticals (including Manufacturing, Oil & Gas, and Power & Utilities) will gather at Kepware’s headquarters in Portland, Maine, to discuss industry trends, share global challenges and success stories, and preview the company’s road map.

“We are thrilled to have our international partners join us here in Portland,” said Brett Austin, President, Kepware. “The Partner Exchange is the perfect platform to showcase the advancements Kepware has made in the past year. Bringing together the corporations behind our worldwide distribution channel allows us to enhance our business efficiencies, both here in Maine and outside of North America.”
