Electrical engineers, technicians, and maintenance professionals will descend on the Valley of the Sun May 3-5 to discuss the latest electrical reconditioning standards, life-extension techniques, and technician certification during the PEARL annual Electrical Safety, Reliability and Sustainability Conference & Exhibition in Phoenix, AZ.

PEARL’s 17th annual Electrical Safety, Reliability and Sustainability Conference & Exhibition will begin with a day of golf, Tomcar desert tour, receptions, and networking events on May 3, followed by two days of exhibits, educational sessions, and technical training at the Arizona Grand Resort & Spa.

The dual-track conference includes two days of technical presentations for managers and engineers, and a second hands-on training track for electrical technicians and maintenance professionals. During the technical conference, attendees will learn about the leading business and technical practices used in the industrial and commercial electrical industries, including presentations on electrical safety, equipment sustainability and life extension, reconditioning and remanufacturing, business operations and leadership, and much more.

Anticipated highlights from the technical presentations include updates on the electrical industry’s first proposed ANSI standard for reconditioning, as well as the first electrical reconditioning technician certification program. PEARL, an ANSI Accredited Standards Developer, is the organizing group for both the ANSI reconditioning standard and technician certification program.

Meanwhile, electrical technicians and maintenance professionals can learn the principles of retrofitting, installing, adjusting, and testing a new protective trip system onto a low-voltage, air frame power circuit breaker during two days of specialized training.

Exhibitor space for the electrical industry’s preeminent annual safety, reliability, and sustainability event is limited, so companies interested in showcasing their products and services should act quickly. Special offers also are available for early-bird registration. Interested attendees and exhibitors should contact the PEARL office at (877) 287-3275, send an email to pearl@pearl1.org, or visit www.Pearl1.org. Corporations that join PEARL within 30 days of the end of the conference will have up to 100 percent of their conference registration fee applied toward their first year’s PEARL membership.


Attendees at PEARL’s annual electrical safety conference visit the exhibit floor during a networking reception event at last year’s conference in New Orleans. This year’s conference will be held in Phoenix, AZ May 3-5.
