COACT Associates & Business Growth Strategies at FABTECH 2018

Michelle Philippon - Content Writer


From November 6-8, 2018, COACT Associates will be traveling to Atlanta for this year’s FABTECH.

FABTECH is North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event.

It is our fourth year attending this industry-leading expo, and we look forward to meeting with current customers, old friends, and other industry professionals at a show where the industry comes together to see what’s now, what’s new, and what’s next.

If you are joining us at FABTECH, we’d love to invite you to attend one of our upcoming events at the show!

FABTECH Business Builders Speaking Engagements


COACT President & Founder Mark Frasco is returning as a featured speaker this year, where he will be discussing two high-profile topics that have been affecting the metal fabrication industry of late:

1) Growth Strategies in a Bustling Economy

Room: B 304

9:00 AM – 10:00 AM, Wednesday, November 7, 2018

The best time to grow your business is when you don’t need to. The economy is bustling, demand is building. “We’ve got more than we can handle. The last thing we need is new business.”

This is rarely uttered, but some are seriously reducing strategic growth efforts. We will discuss the dynamics of the economy, the gestation of the sale for industrial suppliers, and strategies for improving business results, in preparation for the next economic cycle.

See the event details here.

2) Performance Management of the Sales and Marketing Functions

Room: B 310

11:30 AM – 12:30 PM, Wednesday, November 7, 2018

High-performing sales and marketing functions feature strong performance management structures. Unlike other functions of the organization, it is difficult to conceptualize the critical inputs and desirable outputs, and the talent, feedback, tools and processes that produce quality deliverables.

This session features a framework for the business growth leader to work in, creating the loose-tight structures that will make sales and marketing a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
