MainTrain 2017 Saskatoon

MainTrain 2017 held from September 25 to 28 at the historic Delta Bessborough hotel in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan was an overwhelming success!

With an economy that is driven by a diverse combination of agriculture, mining, advanced technology and innovation, the City of Saskatoon is one of the fasted growing centres in Canada offering both a youthful vitality and cultural richness. PEMAC was pleased to welcome many asset management, maintenance and reliability professionals from the region, across Canada and even from around the world to what turned out to be the largest MainTrain conference in history!

[GFMAM Logo] This autumn meeting of the "Global Forum on Maintenance and Asset Management" was also hosted by PEMAC in Saskatoon adjacent to MainTrain. PEMAC welcomed GFMAM representatives to MainTrain who shared insights from organizations around the world including the Institute for Asset Management (IAM), the Asset Management Council (AMC), the Society for Reliability and Maintenance Professionals (SMRP), the Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance (JIPM), Institut Fran├žais d'Asset Management Industriel et Infrastructures (IFRAMI), South African Association for Asset Management (SAAMA), and ABRAMAN (Brazil), Gulf Society for Maintenance and Reliability (GSMR), and the European Federation of National Maintenance Societies (EFNMS).

PEMAC's 19th conference proved to be the event where all attendees were able to Connect, Learn and Contribute as they gained skills to build more effective strategies for maintenance, reliability and asset management programs. Thank you to everyone who joined us in Saskatoon! We hope you will be able to join us again for MainTrain 2018 in Ottawa from September 24 to 27, 2018. More information will be available very soon.

Conference proceedings will soon be available on the members' Knowledge Sharing section. Check back shortly to see the great content that was shared in Saskatoon!
Event photos have now been posted to the Memories page.
