The conference will be held 16 May 2019 at the Omni Houston Hotel Westside in Houston, Texas.

  • Asset Integrity
  • Emerging Technologies
  • Advancements in Equipment – Reliability & Assurance
  • Environment
  • Health & Safety
  • Workforce Development
  • Competency
  • Human Resources – Recruitment & Retention
