Fugitive Emissions Summit Americas Conference and Exhibition a Success

August 13, 2018 | By Mario Cywinski

The two-day Fugitive Emissions Summit Americas Conference and Exhibition, was held recently. The conference offered workshops on a variety of topics, and Speakers’ Corner presentations.

“We wanted to get people out of their comfort zones,” said Rodney Roth, Senior Vice President for Beric Valves and Co-Chairman of the event. “What’s so great about this conference is that we have broken down the barriers that have allowed the comfort zones to exist. Typically, you go to a conference and you gravitate to what you already know; you want to be the smartest person in the room. At this conference, we want to make people just a little bit uncomfortable so that they will broaden their horizons and learn something new. This event is unique, because it is not just about valves, or emissions, or packing and gaskets; this is an event about all of those things, and more. Drone manufacturers are talking to gasket manufacturers, and packing manufacturers are talking to monitoring device suppliers — and end users are talking to all of us. The feedback we have received so far has been great, and we are looking forward to an even bigger event in 2020.”

The conference ran concurrently with the Pump Summit Americas conference, and shared exhibition space. In all over 1,100 registered attendees were on hand for the two-day event.

Pump Summit Americas conference had industry veterans conduct workshops on everything from pump installation best practices to maintenance, service and repair.
