A record turnout of nearly 1,500 registrants, including exhibitors, packed the Meadowview Convention Center on April 28, 2016 for the 9th eChemExpo Solutions Marketplace and Technology Innovations Conference. A combination of unequaled technical presentations and strikingly relevant vendor exhibits.
To find out what questions are crying out for answers, some 70 stakeholder interviews were conducted with potential attendees six to nine months prior to the event; 50 of them with Eastman Chemical Company and 20 split between Nuclear Fuel Services and Wacker Polysilicon. Those interviews formed the basis for keynote presentations, panel discussions and more than 50 PDH-accredited “Meet the Experts” style seminars in five concurrent tracks covering:
– mobility, safety, robotics, operator training and the future;
– plant reliability, energy efficiency and human factors;
– distillation, filtration and vacuum innovations;
– safety, environment, odor prevention and special topics; and
– capital effectiveness, plant lifecycle, modeling and simulation.
Attendee feedback surveys give high marks to the overall gathering and support for the launch of a new e-publication focused on innovations presented at eChem Expo. As such, “APPLIED INNOVATION … powered by eChem Expo” is being e-published as the inaugural Summer 2016 Edition.
In addition to reading “APPLIED INNOVATION … powered by eChem Expo”, attendees and those who missed the April 28, 2016 gathering can view the eChem “2016 Web Marketplace” where readers can easily view the websites and product innovations of most of the 200 companies who exhibited in 2016.
eChem Expo is held every two years in Kingsport, TN. Organizers have selected March 15, 2018 for the next gathering at the Meadowview Convention Center in Kingsport, TN. Final date selection will be confirmed 9 months prior to the event.
