Ultrasound World IX - Where the Best of the Best Came Together...

In it's 9th year, Ultrasound World proved once again to be the leading ultrasound conference in the industry and with attendees from six continents this truly diverse event spoke the common language of reliability. Throughout the week of education sessions one lesson rang true, an ultrasound program without a well thought out asset management program will merely scratch the surface of what ultrasound based condition monitoring can accomplish.

Fortunately this year's agenda was packed with thought leaders who presented on all aspects of asset management.  Reliability centered lubrication, excellence in steam trap monitoring, how to  manage your maintenance budget, reliability leadership, and predictive technology implementation were just a few of the topics covered. Needless to say, everyone left Florida with a laundry list of "AHA" moments some that can be implemented straight away and others that will require some longer term planning.  

Having attended Ultrasound World for the past six years I know first hand that while the lessons learned in the sessions are critical, it's the discussions with peers outside of the room whether it be in the numerous networking events or one on one while watching the sun set over the Gulf that prove year after year to be invaluable. Professional networks are expanded and no doubt lifelong friendships are formed as well. 

Ultrasound World also has the benefit of providing a forum for fellow industry partners to attend and showcase their expertise. This year we were fortunate to have Allied Reliability, Infraspection Institute, PdMA Corporation, R&J Laboratories, SMRP, and United Infrared on hand to share their knowledge and services with our attendees.

Presenter, James Neale, PhD of Waikato University shared this thought with the group, "No one cares how much you know until they know how much you care." This really resonated with me and it was evident that everyone in attendance truly cares about the safety, reliability, and success of their organizations.

We'll be documenting more of the lessons learned through a series of posts here on our Sound Advice blog so check back often and next year make plans to be at Ultrasound World X!
