INDA’s Filtration Conference 2014 is happening next week and a veritable Who’s Who in filtration will attend the event at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, MD. A variety of expert speakers are lined up to address everything from micro-contaminant removal to using filtration to reduce swine viruses. It’s the can’t-miss-filtration-event-of-the-year and we’re sure Baltimore will be filled to the brim with people talking about filtration.
New to the conference this year is the Nonwoven Filter Media Training Course on Tuesday and Wednesday. Christine Sun, Ph.D., a world-recognized expert in nonwovens and filtration will train attendees on filtration market segments, technologies, products, test standards, unmet needs and growing business opportunities. There is a separate registration fee to attend the training but it appears to be well worth the additional fee ($1,595 for INDA/NAFA members and $2,195 for non-members) to have access to the Dr. Sun’s expertise, especially for those new to the industry or who are exploring other aspects of the nonwoven or filtration markets.
NAFA members can grab some CE credits by attending the 3.5 hour NAFA Air Tutorial on Tuesday. The tutorial is designed for those new to the industry and those who need an update on their filtration knowledge and skills. There is a separate fee for the tutorial ($145 for INDA/NAFA members and $209 for non-members) and it does run concurrently with the Filter Media Training Course so you’ll have to choose.
The conference Exposition will run from 10:30 am to 5:30 pm on Wednesday and from 10:30 am to 3:00 pm on Thursday, so be sure to schedule some time to visit those vendor booths.
Scientists from NC State University, the University of Minnesota, Harvard University, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and from a variety of corporations will lead attendees through presentations on Wednesday and Thursday.
All in all, next week’s conference is sure to inform all and provide a terrific opportunity for industry networking. Be sure to follow #Filt14 and #Filtration2014 on Twitter for conference updates.
