The first-ever Pump Summit Americas conference and exhibition, held on June 13th and 14th, 2016 has concluded. Running alongside the Fugitive Emissions Summit Americas conference, with a shared exhibition, there were a total of 1,199 registered attendees for the 2-day event.
The conference portion of the Pump Summit Americas was well-received as a bold new way for pump community members to come together and share ideas. Industry veterans helped run workshops on everything from mechanical seals to pump system optimization. The event also included a demonstrative Speakers’ Corner with presentations that took place on the exhibition floor and covered topics such as cavitation and pump system monitoring.

The 2016 Chairman, Jean-Marc Fosseux, commented about the event: “For the first time, an exhibition not only brought together several types of equipment and service companies, but also had a conference devoted entirely to pumps. Topics ranged from design, operation, and maintenance, with supporting presentations that were both interesting and of good quality. Organization was perfect, making this an attractive event for attendees.”
