2018 Spring Tech Event and Seminars

April 12 & 13

Houston, TX

ISD’s 2018 Spring Tech event, took place on April 12-13 in Houston, TX. A big Thank you to Teadit for hosting this year’s event. We once again covered a range of topics including sessions such as: Latest Innovations in PTFE Gaskets, Rubber Expansion Joints: Basic Applications to Advanced Solutions, Typical Metallic Gaskets for Industrial Applications: How They Are Made And Where They Are Used, Plastics, Air Seals & Bearing Protectors, Gaskets and LDAR, Advanced Sealing Application Workshop, a panel discussion on Practical Applications for 3D Printing, tours and much more.

This event was designed to offer great technical training for the budget conscious - $150 per attendee. Includes all sessions, lunches, and a reception. What a deal!

The Spring Technical Events are a great opportunity to spend time with the experts, be exposed to lots of different sealing technologies – AND spend time networking with your peers.

From Past Spring Tech Event Attendees:

"I wasn't sure if coming to the Tech event a second year in a row would be worth it, but I learned as much this year as I did last year.  It just keeps getting better.” 
                
“I had to say there were many of the subjects presented that I knew much of the subject matter on.  However, it was presented it such a concise and clear manner that I really want to take the same presentations and share with the rest of our staff.”
                
“Great event and great presenters with still plenty of time for networking, excellent!”
