The Petroleum Equipment Institute has announced that online registration and housing are now open for the 2012 PEI Convention at the NACS Show, the petroleum equipment industry’s largest annual event. The convention is scheduled for Oct. 7-10. The trade show will be open Oct. 8-10. The event will be held in Las Vegas, Nev., at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The PEI Convention at the NACS Show is ranked as one of the overall 50 largest annual trade shows in the United States. The 2011 PEI Convention at the NACS Show, held in Chicago, featured a 52,200-net-square-foot petroleum equipment area with 200 petroleum equipment-related companies exhibiting in nearly 500 booths. More than 22,000 people attended the show, including a record 1,913 international attendees from 58 countries.
Full registration includes admission to all educational sessions, the trade show, the PEI Industry Reception and the NACS Welcome Reception. The cost for early-bird registration is $295 for PEI and NACS members and $495 nonmembers. This early-bird rate is only available through July 31. An early-bird daily rate also is available for $195 for members and $295 for nonmembers.
For companies registering five or more for full registration, PEI offers additional group registration discounts. Spouses also qualify for group registration. The PEI headquarters hotel is the LVH—the Las Vegas Hotel (formerly the Las Vegas Hilton). PEI also has room blocks at Harrah’s and at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
