ACE11 Summary

June 20, 2011 Leave a comment

Chris at ACE11 BoothPICA would like to thank everyone who participated in the AWWA ACE11 conference in Washington, DC. The amount of knowledge sharing and business opportunities at this year’s conference is promising for the water and wastewater industries. Thousands of people passed by the PICA booth and many stopped to chat for a few minutes about the inspection techniques we offer.

If you left your business card with either Ed Brain or Chris Garrett at the booth, please look for an email from them in the coming week.

PICA is excited to build upon all of the relationships established at the conference. If you have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to contact PICA directly. Lots of great information can also be found by surfing our website too.

Be sure to keep your eye out for PICA at the ASCE Pipelines conference July 23-27 in Seattle, Washington. We hope to see you there!Ed at ACE11 Booth

The American Water Works Association ACE11 Exposition is halfway over and PICA has been busy building relationships around the world. From Ecuador to South Korea to North America, guests have been stopping by the PICA booth to learn more about Direct Condition Assessment with the HydraSnake and See-Snake tools.

Ed Brain and Chris Garrett are managing the booth, so if you are in Washington, DC, stop by #126 and introduce yourself.

Check back here over the next few days for pictures and updates and don’t forget: Good Decisions start with Good Information!

ACE11 – Virtually There!

May 26, 2011 Leave a comment

In the last couple of years, I have participated in an increasing number of product demos, meetings and presentations by sitting in my office chair and logging onto that miracle of modern technology: the internet. Although, in my opinion, nothing beats face-to-face interactions, video conferencing and Go2Meeting type computer sharing have made interactions that can’t be face-to-face much more productive. And you can’t argue the cost effectiveness of attending a two-hour online meeting versus being there via a four-hour flight.

This year, AWWA has jumped on board the online experience and is offering “virtual attendance” to portions of the ACE11 conference. Like universities who are offering “online classrooms”, this will allow more people who normally cannot attend access to some of the information presented during the conference (AWWA promises over ten hours of live ACE content plus five additional videos) for a fraction of the cost of attending in person. If you’re interested, check out their website.

I hope this is a sign of things to come and look forward to more advances in knowledge sharing technologies.
