Sign up for our Pre-Conference Training Session!

The Saskatchewan Pressure Equipment Safety Legislation Seminar is being offered during the IPEIA Pre-Conference Training Sessions.

On January 1st, the new Saskatchewan Boiler and Pressure Vessel Regulations came into effect. Stakeholders should consider attending this course to hear first hand, the changes that will be taking effect. Under the guidance of recognized industry expert, Brian Krasiun, P.Eng and Principal Engineer of ASFALEIA Inspection & Management Services Ltd, attendees will not only be taken through the changes to the old Regulations, they will also be guided through the maze of legislation, codes and standards that regulate pressure equipment and piping in Saskatchewan. The course will provide attendees with a greater awareness, knowledge and understanding of the new Regulations and the many program areas regulated by the Technical Safety Authority of Saskatchewan (TSASK). The cost has remained the same for 2018 at $735 per registrant.

Networking Dinner & Casino Event

IPEIA has grown considerably since its inception 22 years ago, and the conference has stretched the limits of our home at the Banff Center. In 2018 we want to try something new, and are moving the Thursday Networking and Casino off-site to a new venue: The Mountview Barbecue. Although the venue is new, the casino is still generously supported by a familiar Platinum sponsor, IRISNDT while the dinner is supported by a new Platinum sponsor, Nortech Advanced NDT. The Mountview Barbecue specializes in hosting functions such as IPEIA and offers a unique experience for conference delegates. Accessible by shuttle from The Banff Center (no on-site parking) Mountview is only 10 minutes from the center of Banff. It features two large tents heated by large central firepits and has enough space to host both the dinner and the casino. Moving to this new venue allows the IPEIA exhibition to remain open Friday morning so delegates can do some last-minute shopping!

IPEIA 2018 Conference Shuttle

The 2017 inauguration of a shuttle service that stopped at hotels in Banff and brought delegates to the conference proved to be a popular addition to the conference, so we have decided to continue with the service in 2018. It was instrumental in relieving the parking issues at The Banff Center.

The full shuttle schedule, complete with the hotel stops, has been posted on the Banff Shuttle Service page and will be accessible on the new Conference App. Shuttle service has been extended on Thursday night to ferry delegates to the dinner and casino, with stops at hotels in Banff on the return trip. Shuttle service to and from hotels to The Banff Center will also be available on Friday morning.

IPEIA 2018 Registration

IPEIA has gone through a lot of changes in 2018, and Registration is also changing. We encourage everyone to register on line through the website by clicking the below button, but if you need to register on site that option will be available. We have tried to make the Registration process as easy as possible and will have expert staff on site in case some additional support is required.

Registration has moved to the first floor. As a growing number of delegates are choosing to stay at The Banff Center, first floor access just made sense.


THE IPEIA CONFERENCE APP!!!

We promised you to have everything at the palm of your hand we are thrilled to announce it is on it’s way to you. The app will replace the former Conference Directory so that you can no longer misplace it, leave it in your hotel room, lend it to someone and not get it back… no matter where you are, if you have your smart device… you are informed!!

Highlights of the Conference App will include sponsorship details, exhibition maps, networking, schedules, presentation abstracts, presenters bios, contests, social media and much more!!
