It’s a menace that knows no geographical bounds: from offshore oil rigs and wind farms to pipelines spanning state and national borders, corrosion jeopardises assets in every industry and community worldwide.
As part of its member-driven mission to protect people, assets, and the environment from the adverse effects of corrosion, NACE International is hosting conferences throughout the United States and Canada this year to foster knowledge exchange of innovative new techniques and technologies that are driving innovation in the corrosion industry.
These conferences are essential networking platforms, where attendees discover solutions to region-specific corrosion issues from local industry experts.
“This show was a great way for my coworkers and me to share and compare what’s happening in this part of the world,” said one recent NACE Area conference attendee. “I got a lot out of the face-to-face meetings and technical sessions.”
Also on the NACE International event roster, Corrosion Technology Week, the annual “work week” for NACE members to share information and expertise for the purpose of developing and revising standards and reports that drive industry and public safety.
The NACE Area shows are planned and managed by the association’s member-led sections throughout North America:
NACE Central Area Conference | Omaha, NE | August 6 - 8, 2018
Hosted by NACE International and the NACE Omaha Section, the 2018 Central Area Conference will feature unique educational presentations, forums, and the latest advancements in corrosion products on the exhibit hall floor. The technical program will provide numerous topics including failure analysis, cathodic protection, coatings for above and below ground, designing for corrosion, operator qualification, and a review of the fundamentals – there’s something for all skill levels.
Corrosion Technology Week | Houston, TX | September 16-20, 2018
Corrosion Technology Week (CTW) is an annual "work week" for members of NACE International technical committees. Sponsored by the Technical Coordination Committee, this event includes a series of meetings focused on methods of identifying, preventing, and combating corrosion problems across all major industries.Technical Information Exchanges enable committees to stay on the cutting edge of innovation and technology in the corrosion industry.
NACE Eastern Area Conference | Myrtle Beach, SC | October 1-3, 2018
Billions of dollars are spent each year on coatings and corrosion issues affecting bridges and highways, maritime assets, pipelines, and water tanks. To address this issue, NACE International and the NACE Carolina Section are hosting the 2018 Eastern Area Conference, which will feature unique educational presentations, forums, and the latest advancements in corrosion products on the exhibit hall floor.
Northern Area Eastern Conference | Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada| October 14-16, 2018
Now accepting abstracts for presentations on various methods of corrosion control, this conference is organised by the NACE Atlantic Canada Section. Attendees will experience new corrosion technologies and equipment, plus unique educational presentations and forums discussing the unique corrosion challenges of the northeastern region, from New England to Canada’s maritime provinces.
Western Area Conference | Seattle, Washington | November 27 - 29, 2018
From the corrosion-plagued port of Anchorage to the recent findings that a massive southern California gas leak was caused by corrosion, it’s more important than ever that corrosion professionals stay current with the latest industry developments. NACE International and the NACE Puget Sound Section are now accepting abstracts for presentations on topics relating to corrosion in marine environments, corrosion control in the energy industry, durability of reinforced concrete structures, and more.
