New Logo… New Colours… A Total New Brand

The 2018 IPEIA Steering Committee and our Sub-Committees is in full swing organizing the IPEIA 22nd Annual Conference. One of the first tasks we took on was listening to you…

 Our Delegates  Our Sponsors  Our Exhibitors  Our Speakers

We appreciate your feedback and desire to “refresh” our brand to highlight who IPEIA is today. All organizations grow and with continuous growth and improvement, we see change. It is time for a change at IPEIA, in many ways, and the first you, our members, will notice is the new logo.

Since IPEIA’s humble beginnings 21 years ago, we have always maintained our core values; organizing the best Pressure Equipment Integrity Conference to share knowledge with ample networking opportunities with all levels of industry related to integrity management of pressure equipment, including producers, contractors, service providers, consultants, suppliers, and regulators. Our new logo emphasizes a critical aspect of pressure equipment, managing the pressure. We all understand the importance of maximum allowable pressure in design, operation, and maintenance of boilers, pressure vessels and piping systems.

Above all else, IPEIA is a solid organization. We are growing and getting stronger in the industry and we wanted a new logo to represent this.

Next up… you will soon see a new website, registration system and many more exciting resources and tools to enhance everyone’s experience with IPEIA.

We look forward to sharing more updates and good news stories in the coming months.

Warm regards,

March 2017

To: All Delegates (aka friends, comrades and colleagues);

This was the 21st annual IPEIA Conference which, since its inception in 1996, has continued to grow not only in size but in stature and is now recognized worldwide as “the” Pressure Equipment Integrity Conference to attend.

Just a few short weeks ago we all came together… over 400
conference delegates and at the Exposition being held in
conjunction with the conference there were close to 100 exhibiting companies representing major industry suppliers from around the world.

On behalf of the 2017 IPEIA Steering Committee and all the subcommittee members, we would like to extend a heartfelt ‘thank you’ for your support of IPEIA and the industry.

I personally also want to express my deepest gratitude to over 60 volunteers of the various committees for their time, effort and dedication. Your incredible commitment paid off in the execution of a very successful conference.
