Toronto – The Call for Papers is now open for this year’s MainTrain conference, which will be held earlier than usual – September 21-24, 2015, in Vancouver, BC, says Cindy Sneddon, executive director of the event’s organizer, the Plant Engineering & Maintenance Association of Canada (PEMAC)

She ways MainTrain needs the best workshops, experience-based presentations and case studies for its 2015 conference. PEMAC is seeking presentations that will provide participants with the tools to inspire, innovate and improve through excellence in maintenance, reliability and asset management.

If you have a story of innovation, a case study of improvement successfully increasing productivity and reducing costs, or can teach skills that will help inspire delegates to find efficiencies, PEMAC wants to hear from you.

To be considered for a presentation or workshop at MainTrain 2015, submit an abstract outlining what you would like to share. PEMAC is looking for 45-minute presentations and half- or full-day skill-building workshops.


The submission deadline is March 15, 2015. For more details, visit or contact Nicolle Guillen at or 905-823-7255, extension 4.
