This year's 4-day program focuses on operating company cases studies and includes keynote addresses, technical and management presentations, discussion groups, and an exhibition of products and services. Presentations focus on improving reliability in the refining and petrochemical industry, covering topics such as effective maintenance organization, productivity, equipment reliability, health and safety, training, predictive/preventive maintenance, maintenance and engineering standards, inspection, and innovative reliability technology.
The Exhibition, held as part of the conference, gives attendees the opportunity to meet and talk with representatives from companies offering a variety of goods and services to the refining and petrochemical industries.
The AFPM Reliability & Maintenance Conference & Exhibition is the premier event for networking, information exchange, and sales for reliability and maintenance professionals, specifically those in the petroleum refining and petrochemical manufacturing industries. Key decision makers in maintenance organizations representing over 90% of total U.S. refining capacity and roughly 40 domestic and international petrochemical plants are typically represented here.
Conference sessions are not held during official exhibit hall hours so that attendees can dedicate their time and focus to doing business on the show floor. The exhibition encompasses 9.5 hours of unopposed show time, scheduled during lunch and late afternoon reception hours to encourage traffic flow in the hall. Complimentary food and beverage service is provided in the hall.
The conference is a 2.5-day program consisting of keynote sessions, workshops, discussion sessions, and question and answer panels. All focus on managing and executing maintenance in process plants. Exhibitors are encouraged to attend the workshops and discussion sessions to share their expertise and experiences.
Who should exhibit?
The exhibit invitation is extended to both domestic and international companies that provide equipment, technologies, and/or specialty services to the petroleum refining or petrochemical manufacturing industries. Due to the demand for booths, auxiliary services such as trade press, local attractions, general interest promotional offerings, etc. may not occupy a booth.
AFPM is a trade association representing high-tech American manufacturers of virtually the entire U.S. supply of gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, other fuels and home heating oil, as well as the petrochemicals used as building blocks for thousands of vital products in daily life.
