Social Events

Exhibition Appreciation Event

The Exhibition is an integral part of the IPEIA conference week. The 2018 exhibition will feature 74 companies displaying technologies and technical services related to Pressure Equipment Integrity over two floors in the Kinnear Center. The conference would not be the same without these exhibitors and the up-to-date technological information they bring. The Exhibitor Appreciation Event is IPEIA’s way of thanking companies for their continued support while providing an excellent networking opportunity for both vendors and delegates attending the conference.

Coffee Breaks

Coffee breaks are more than just a break. Coffee breaks at IPEIA are an opportunity to meet with colleagues, to digest the presentations, to see what is on display, and to meet with vendors, speakers and peers. Coffee breaks are also generously sponsored by companies that believe it is important to support our industry. So please stop for coffee, or a tea, enjoy a snack, and prepare for the next great presentation.

Welcome and Working Lunches

The Banff Center is an art center and food at the Centre is also an art form. Delegates are always treated to an excellent repast served on both exhibition floors. Lunches are sponsored by generous donors who believe in supporting the integrity industry. Once again, excellent food, lots of new technology and more opportunities to meet and discuss the latest in pressure equipment integrity.

Awards & Closing Event

The Friday Closing is a new initiative for 2018. This brief but important ceremony gives delegates an opportunity to see who the winners were for various awards, including best presentation. The perfect end to the IPEIA week, while still allowing lots of time to head back home (or the office).
