EEMUA looks forward to welcoming attendees to Conference 2023

06 March 2023

We are looking forward to welcoming attendees to the EEMUA Conference this week (8-9 March) in Kenilworth.

This is EEMUA’s flagship biennial event and is focused purely on the users of engineering equipment and materials; the owners and operators who depend on the safe, reliable, and efficient operation of industrial plant. The global COVID-19 pandemic meant that Conference 2021 was online, rather than face to face. This was yet another thing to deal with, as the list of disruptors has grown ever longer – the energy transition and climate change, the shift to digital and Industry 4.0, the pandemic, supply chain disruption, massive changes in trading statuses, and geopolitical conflicts.

When your role is concerned with safe operation of sites that are often costly, often hazardous, and always closely regulated; ensuring they do what they are supposed to, when they are supposed to, whenever they are supposed to is not a task to be taken lightly even in the best of times. It is even harder in “interesting times”. For our Conference Committee, made up of representatives from Members and Associates within the Association, this suggested a suitable theme for this year’s Conference: Meeting Challenges, Mastering the Changes, Exploiting the Opportunities – Industry working through the tipping points.

In the face of such change, what can go wrong, and what can go right, and how can organisations tilt the scales, making the right choices to be resilient and flexible? The Conference programme offers a wide range of speakers, from users through to service suppliers, as well as organisations able to bring a useful perspective to key issues. There are technical topics, as well as discussions on items such as the effects of COVID on organisational practices and building a mentally resilient organisation.

There are also our sponsors, ProcessVue, IRISNDT and Axiom Engineering Associates, as well as exhibitors, on hand to provide an overview of the services they can offer.

Over the course of the two days, there is going to be something for everyone to learn from.
