March 30, 2016 – Expecting attendance of 3000+, the Electrical Apparatus Service Association (EASA) is hosting its Annual Convention & Exposition in Toronto, under the theme “E3: Educate • Experience• Engage”.

“The convention theme perfectly sums up what you can expect from the many education sessions and exhibition,” said EASA chair, Mike Dupuis. Meantime, Linda J. Raynes, EASA president & CEO, notes “Attendance at the EASA Convention is open to all—members and non-members”.

The convention’s program addresses business and management issues such as:

• How customers evaluate the quality of service work
• Sustainable sales team development
• Global industrial economy: 2016 and beyond

Additionally, the program includes a range of technical sessions focusing on ideas for improving the operation of electromechanical equipment, including:

• Failure analysis of bearings
• Pump system optimization
• Safety regulations update

“The technical program is a unique opportunity for plant engineering and maintenance personnel to learn about the latest practices to improve their operations and reduce downtime,” added Raynes.

Another convention feature is the three-day expo featuring the latest in electric motors, drives & controls, pumps, generators and other electromechanical equipment.
