MRO Magazine: MainTrain Conference Goes Digital
Over 200 attendees took in the 21 presentations that included 35 speakers, two keynotes, networking sessions, an exhibit hall, and an awards presentation
PEMAC Asset Management Association of Canada held its annual MainTrain conference recently. The conference goes to a different location in Canada every year, with Ottawa and Edmonton being the two most recent destinations. This year, the event was to take place in Saint John, New Brunswick; however, as a result of COVID-19, it became a virtual conference for the first time. Therefore, in a way, you can say that its destination for 2020 was all of Canada.
“MainTrain 2020 successfully enabled PEMAC Asset Management Association of Canada’s members to connect, learn and contribute across a wide range of maintenance, reliability and asset management topics,” said Susan Lubell, President PEMAC. “Over 50 per cent of participants attended for the first time in this online event forum and were rewarded with networking opportunities with other practitioners across the country.”
