Celebrating Thermal Imaging
InfraMation Conference Draws 400 Guests
PORTLAND, Ore. — Thermal imaging was on full display at the 14th annual InfraMation conference, held Nov. 5-7 in Orlando, Fla.
Hosted by the Infrared Training Center, and cosponsored by Flir Systems Inc., InfraMation is a highly attended thermography users’ conference and applications training event.
Approximately 400 guests from nine countries, 44 states, and eight Canadian provinces attended the event.
“I thought I was really up on the technology, but I found out I’m not,” said Bob Walker, test engineer, Michelin Laurens Proving Grounds, Mountville, S.C. “I really enjoyed and learned a lot at InfraMation.”
Attendees were treated to live speakers, in-depth clinics, and paper presentations demonstrating the array of industries where thermography is being utilized, including electrical, predictive maintenance, construction, manufacturing, HVAC, and security. The week also featured a day of preconference training for attendees looking to renew their thermography certifications.
“I made so many new contacts and learned so much I can’t imagine how much behind-the-scenes work goes on to pull something like that off,” said Renee Harris, senior risk service consultant, Fireman’s Fund Insurance Co.
After two years of the conference being in Orlando, InfraMation is moving to a spring schedule with the next conference taking place in May 2015 in Nashville, Tenn.
“The ITC is thrilled to be having our next InfraMation in Nashville,” said John Keane, director, ITC. “Nashville will be our 15th conference and we are looking forward to it being our biggest and best conference yet.”
