The Electrical Apparatus Service Association (EASA) will hold its Annual Convention and Exposition from June 12 - 14, 2016 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The theme for the 2016 Convention is "E3: Educate–Experience–Engage"

Discussing the theme, EASA Chairman of the Board, Mr. Mike Dupuis, noted "The convention theme perfectly sums up what you can expect from the many education sessions and exhibition."

The convention will once again feature a wide-ranging program addressing current business and management issues, including:

  • How Customers Evaluate the Quality of Service Work: This explains the language of quality of services including the role of service gaps.
  • Sustainable Sales Team Development: This outlines seven essential components for entrenching a culture of training and practice for sales teams.
  • Global Industrial Economy—2016 and Beyond: An overview of short and long-term global economic forecasts.

Additionally, the convention program includes a range of technical sessions focusing on the latest ideas for improving the operation of electromechanical equipment. These topics include:

  • Failure Analysis of Bearings: Understand the causes and damages from the most common electric motor bearing failures and how to resolve them.
  • Pump System Optimization: Explore practices to improve reliability while reducing operating costs.
  • Safety Regulations Update: Review the new safety regulations which soon become effective and how to build a safety program and culture of safety.

Another feature of the EASA Convention is the three-day exposition featuring the industry's leading manufacturers showing the latest in electric motors, drives and controls, pumps, generators, and other electromechanical equipment. The exposition features an open-floor format for attendees to talk face-to-face with companies that serve the electrical apparatus industry. For information on exhibiting at the exposition, contact Dale Shuter at EASA at dshuter@easa.com. Flexible registration options are available.

"Attendance at the EASA convention is open to all: members and non-members," added Linda J. Raynes, CAE, EASA President and CEO. "The technical program is a unique opportunity for plant engineering and maintenance personnel to learn about the latest practices to improve their operations and reduce downtime."

The Electrical Apparatus Service Association (EASA) is an international trade organization consisting of more than 2,000 electromechanical sales and services firms in 59 countries. Through its many engineering and education programs, EASA keeps members up to date on materials, equipment and state-of-the-art technology related to sales, service and maintenance of motors, generators, drives, controls, pumps and other electromechanical equipment.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
