What will you learn at MARCON 2019?

MARCON 2019

Join us at the 23rd annual Maintenance and Reliability Conference. MARCON 2019 will be held March 4 – 7, 2019 in Knoxville, Tennessee. We are excited to announce that we will be back at the Knoxville Convention Center!

This conference is unlike any other you will attend this year. You won’t just learn by sitting in workshops and presentations. MARCON’s intimate size allows you the opportunity to collaborate one-on-one with the presenters, exhibitors and other attendees. Join us as companies share their best practices, and information on new and emerging technologies, methods and techniques in the area of Reliability and Maintenance Engineering and Management. This conference is a forum for all — practitioners, specialists, managers, educators, students, and even the new and uninitiated.

Bring Your Team
Maximize growth by bringing your entire team to MARCON. Individuals can tailor their experience by selecting workshops and paper presentations to attend, and the team benefits by discussing what you are learning on the spot. You can also save money by attending as a team…for every 3 paid registrations from your company, you receive a 4th free!! This discount applies to the formal portion of the conference only, but workshops can be added for a reasonable fee.

Take your experience a step farther by letting us help you host a meeting at MARCON. Why travel twice? Learn from industry experts and knock out some business while you are here. The RMC staff can assist you in coordinating a space to hold a private meeting at either the Knoxville Convention Center or the Holiday Inn Downtown World’s Fair park. Whether you need to meet for two hours or two days, we can help. Please contact Kim Kallstrom (kkallstr@utk.edu / 865-974-9627) for more information.
