NETA, the InterNational Electrical Testing Association, invites professionals involved in the specifying, maintenance, and testing of electrical power systems to save the date for PowerTest 2017. Over 1,000 participants will gather February 27- March 3, 2017, at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, California.
Since the early 1900s, California has been known as the Golden Land of Promise. Vision, ingenuity, resourcefulness, and purpose are Southern California qualities that will inspire PowerTest 2017 as the industry comes together to share knowledge and improve quality, safety, and reliability across all types of power systems.
Located in the heart of Southern California central to the mountains, ocean, fertile farmlands, and just outside Los Angeles, Anaheim is home to the Disneyland Resort — and its massive complex of Disney rides, restaurants, hotels, and shops — as well as the Anaheim Convention Center.
This premier electrical maintenance and safety event will offer PowerTest attendees the opportunity to advance their professional development and knowledge on the most relevant industry topics. PowerTest 2017 will also provide numerous opportunities to cultivate business relationships, develop cutting-edge skills, exchange ideas, and influence the future of the electrical power systems industry. Attendees participate in technical presentations, interactive panel sessions, a symposium led by a team of experts, the New Product Forum, and in-depth post-conference seminars.
For example, on Monday, PowerTest 2017 features a full day of 27 different technical presentations from which to choose. Specific topics within Electrical Safety, Protection Relays, Battery Systems, Equipment and Reliability, and Power Transformers are designed to expand thinking and generate new ideas. The afternoon features a symposium panel discussion on Low-Medium Voltage Circuit Breakers — Aging Infrastructure, followed by a welcoming evening of Southern California hospitality.
Tuesday morning panel sessions give attendees a unique opportunity to engage in an open discussion and ask questions of subject-matter experts in the areas of Electrical Safety, Protective Relays, Circuit Breakers, and Power Transformers. A complimentary lunch is offered during the PowerTest 2017 Trade Show that afternoon, featuring more than 100 top-tier electrical power vendors who share a mission of delivering safety and reliability-based solutions to everyday challenges. Wrapping up an exciting day are the popular PowerBash Awards and Reception.
Wednesday and Thursday are dedicated to even more learning, with attendees choosing from 12 in-depth, four-hour seminars. These technical seminars cover current technical topics and important industry issues to prepare attendees for challenges ahead. PowerTest 2017 concludes on Friday with educational content dedicated to engineers, technicians, and project managers who are responsible for the quality of electrical power systems.
NETA urges attendees to save $100 by taking advantage of the Early Bird Registration, which opens September 1, 2016, at http://www.powertest.org.
Sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities are available for companies seeking leadership visibility at the event. NETA’s industry partners are encouraged to reserve exhibit space and confirm sponsorships as soon as possible.
