The Electrical Apparatus Service Association ( www.easa.com ) will hold its annual convention and exposition June 14-16 at the Renaissance Grand Hotel & America's Center in St. Louis. The 2009 convention theme is “Gateway to Innovation.”

A companion trade show features the industry's leading manufacturers and service providers highlighting the latest developments in electric motors, drives and controls, generators and other electro-mechanical equipment, as well as services to the electromechanical industry.
