The Petroleum Equipment Institute has announced that online registration now is open for the 2011 PEI Convention at the NACS Show, the petroleum equipment industry’s largest annual event. The convention is scheduled for Oct. 1-4 in Chicago at the McCormick Place Convention Center.
The 2010 PEI Convention at the NACS Show featured a 56,800-square-foot petroleum equipment area with 200 petroleum equipment-related companies exhibiting in more than 500 booths. Nearly 22,000 people attended, including 1,328 international attendees. The show is ranked as one of the 50 largest annual trade shows in the United States.
Full “early bird” registration, which includes admission to all educational sessions, the trade show, the PEI industry reception and NACS welcome reception, is $295 for PEI and NACS members and $495 for all other attendees. The early bird rate is available through July 22. A daily rate also is available. For companies registering five or more for full registration, PEI offers additional discounts. This year, spouses qualify for group registration.
