Which TechCon® should I attend?
Each TechCon® has unique characteristics, globally dispersed for affordability and respected for the highest level of educational offerings. You may need to consider attending all of them.
TechCon North America was first held in 1996 in New Orleans, Louisiana. It has since moved about the United States, accommodating the growing number of delegates and utility Hosts. It often includes a facility tour of the sponsoring utility. Most recently, the conference averaged 200 in attendance representing 12 various countries and 25 exhibiting corporations. TechCon North America offers a general session jam packed with education by global experts. It also offers a concentrated “training track” with hands-on demonstrations and a Round-Table Interchange with two separate environments allowing experts and others to interact, exchange challenges, successes and networking.
TechCon Asia-Pacific began in 1999 in collaboration with Wilson Transformer Company Pty Ltd where TJH2b Analytical Services houses their diagnostic laboratory. The conference is a two day event with a program tailored to industry. Firmly focused on Condition-based maintenance and life-management for high voltage power equipment, it attracts more than 200 delegates, supporters and industry leaders annually. TechCon Asia Pacific conferences are often teamed up with a 1 day conference with Cigre’. The combination of these two powerhouse organizations make for an exemplary experience.
Euro TechCon began in 1996 as an educational resource to the European electric power industry. Euro TechCon draws nearly 150 in attendance representing, 44 countries and 18 exhibition spaces. Held each year in the United Kingdom, near TJH2b’s diagnostic laboratory in Bromborough, this conference gathers the greatest minds and introduces up-to-the-minute electric power technologies to date.
