Resource Planning Summit

June 1, 2, and 3, 2020


“Meet Me in St. Louis!”

The #1 conference for Resource Planning returns June 1, 2, and 3, 2020 at The Last Hotel, in St. Louis!

St. Louis sits along the Mississippi River in Missouri. Its iconic, 630-ft. Gateway Arch, built in the 1960s, honors the early 19th-century explorations of Lewis and Clark and America's westward expansion in general. Replica paddlewheelers ply the river, offering views of the arch. The Soulard district is home to barbecue restaurants and clubs playing blues music.

The Last Hotel is a beautiful, boutique hotel located in the old International Shoe Company building, next to the City Museum in the heart of the downtown area, steps from the famous Arch. The unique venue draws rave reviews from all who stay there (check out some of the reviews on our Venue page!).

Stay tuned for more details about the conference and the great speakers we’ll have lined up!

We celebrated our 8th summit in early 2019 in Nashville, TN, and the event was every bit as exciting as we’d hoped, with lots of interaction, new ideas, and excellent speakers.

As the premier thought leadership gathering for promoting best practices in resource management, demand management, and capacity planning, and how all these disciplines are critical to exemplary strategy and project execution, The Resource Planning Summit is always a can’t-miss event.

And did we say it’s fun, too?

Dynamic and informative Speakers

Our Nashville event offered an excellent lineup of speakers, including leading experts, authors, and practitioners in the world of resource and portfolio management. In addition to noted business speakers, we also had some exciting special guests to present on lessons from the world of entertainment. Filmmaker/screenwriter David Hayter (X-Men, Watchmen, and more) shared team-building lessons from the fictional world of superheroes as well as real-life superheroes, the teams that make the films, amid high complexity, constant change, and tight deadlines! And this being Nashville, noted songwriter and humorist Patrick Henry was on hand to show how to keep your resource management team in tune—literally. YouTube celebrity Judson Laippley (the Evolution of Dance) not only entertained everyone, but offered timeless insights applicable in the world of resource management.

Networking And Learning Opportunities


A conference is more than its speakers and venue.  The Resource Planning Summit brings together professionals, authors, executives and managers from all industries, to network, learn from each other, and share experiences.  

Project professionals get to connect with like-minded colleagues on how to best utilize and optimize enterprise resource planning, portfolio management strategies, and software across various businesses and industries. This is especially evident during our Speed Networking sessions where conference attendees have an opportunity to meet with three other conference attendees.

Fun Evening Events


In addition to our lineup of speakers and opportunities to connect, we always have a number of special events lined up.

For the 2019 event in Nashville, we spent Monday evening at the 46,000 square-foot George Jones Museum in the heart of downtown Nashville for the museum tour, dinner, drinks, and a live band.

Tuesday night we headed to the famous Grand Ole Opry for a live concert and show followed by a backstage tour! Some lucky attendees even got to sit on stage for an exhilarating, once-in-a-lifetime experience!
