ABS Technology Summit AMPs Up


Warwick-based Automated Business Solutions will hold its annual Technology Summit on Wednesday, March 15, from 4:00 pm to 7:00 at the Amica Mutual Pavilion Center in Providence. Those who attend may stay to watch the Providence Bruins Hockey game at 7:05 p.m.


This will be the second consecutive year The Summit will be held at The AMP Center (previously, the Dunkin Donuts Center). Previous Summits were held at McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket.


There will be one similarly from last year. Funds raised from this event will be given to charity. ABS Co-Founder and President, Alan Albergaria, lost his life on March 27, 2020, when he was struck and killed by a drunk driver while out for a walk. As a result of this tragic loss, proceeds from their raffles and silent auction that night will benefit Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) in his memory.


ABS Company President Mike Ardry said, “It is hard to believe that it has been almost three years since we lost Alan. The world has changed due to Covid, supply chain issues, and rate increases. ABS has weathered all of that because of the amazing team Alan built. We continue to live his legacy.”


The Technology Summit features several of the company’s preferred vendors who will display, demonstrate, and share the latest innovations for the office. Guest speakers will also deliver news regarding the industry; including trends and machines hitting the market. A very special guest may be announced soon!


Additionally, there will be chances for guests to win some wonderful prizes. Raffles and door prizes will be available. In the past, big-ticket items including flat-screen televisions, Keurig Coffee Makers, wireless headphones, and iPads have been up for grabs. The Providence Bruins donated team autographed apparel.


With Automated looking to raise money this year, they will be selling raffle tickets at the door. Tickets are $5 for 1, $10 for 3 and an armful for $20. All proceeds will be donated to benefit MADD, in honor of Albergaria.


Other festivities are being planned for that night. Details are forthcoming, according to Ardry.


Registration for the event is free but space is limited.
