Earlier in March, NACE International’s Annual Conference and Exposition, CORROSION 2016, brought together more than 6,000 leaders from industry, government, and academia who met in Vancouver, CA to discuss the latest technologies and issues along with making decisions on the most effective means of corrosion prevention.
This year, Mears took a significant exhibit presence showcasing its technology in an island booth (in a prominent location) on the main aisle of the exhibit hall.
The theme, based on our current marketing campaign “Under One Hat” focused on the four key market areas for Mears; Engineering, Field Services, Construction, and Inline Inspection, defined in “Pod” areas. This clean and simple message gave us the opportunity to deliver complex communications in a simplified manner to the attendees both confidently and clearly, demonstrating the depth of services and technical expertise offered uniquely by Mears.
In addition Mears brought a 24” MFL ILI tool with adjoining caliper. This innovative tool was a shop-stopper, with many attendees wanting to learn more about the tool capabilities and Mears in general.
During the conference, technical members of the Mears staff spoke at several notable sessions on topics such as the PHMSA Pipeline Safety Forum, Corrosion and Punishment and CP of Nuclear Power Plant Buried Piping. With heavy involvement in the technical committees and meetings, Mears, once again made a statement of being ahead of the curve when it comes to having a deep bench of technical experts.
Tuesday evening saw a hospitality event for clients, industry peers and a group of highly respected NACE members.
All in all, the NACE conference was “a huge success” in its true meaning of the phrase for Mears, and we look forward to further notable achievements coming ‘through the pipeline’ in the coming months as a result of our efforts at the NACE Annual Conference.
