2018 Intertek Asset Integrity Management Symposium

April 12, 2018

The Intertek Asset Integrity Management (AIM) Symposium is open to all in the oil, gas, petrochemical, and civil infrastructure fields seeking to achieve increased productivity, while meeting safety and environmental goals through effective asset integrity management. Intertek AIM is holding this symposium June 20 – 22, 2018 at the Candlewood Suites Houston Park Row Hotel in Katy, TX. A block of rooms are available for those registered for the symposium.

The symposium will discuss key building blocks of a world-class asset integrity management program. Intertek’s team of industry leaders will demonstrate the activities, fundamental and advanced, that lead the asset integrity management process, focused on effective resource allocation and meeting regulatory requirement. These sessions will be supported with case studies, software demonstrations and best practices/lessons learned.

Anyone responsible for effective operation of capital assets with a desire to expand their knowledge of the integral parts of an asset integrity management program, improving reliability, and reducing downtime should attend this symposium.

Registration cost is $350/per attendee. A discount of $50 per registrant is available to teams of 3 or more who register together for the conference. (Deadline to register is June 11, 2018.)
