Comments from the attendees:


"The investment and time was well worth it. Knowledge that was passed on to me will become my most valuable tool. It was truly a great conference. I was impressed with the technical sessions, and the exhibitors were helpful as well. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Pumping Machinery and Dr. Nelik for this"

Michael Stener, Shenandoah Apparatus, Georgia


"Time slots and days were well-planned. As a suggestion, attendees should also bring their pump issues for the presenters and exhibitors to research and help"

Gordon Kerchner, Canada

"Big thank you for all the efforts. I was a total novice, but each speaker was knowledgeable and well prepared. There was much information available! I had two colleagues with me - one had taken pumps apart, but it was years ago, and this hands-on refresher was very helpful."

Ralph Percival, CoorsTek, North Carolina
