MAINTCON2010 was a total success with the presence of more than 700 delegates, exhibits and technical papers from all over the world. The conference featured keynote speakers from Executive Management of GCC as well as global companies, who shared their valuable experiences with the attendees. The conference technical program comprised of 4 technical workshops and 57 papers covering all aspects of maintenance, including reliability, asset management, planning, preventive maintenance and overall maintenance leadership. The conference capped off its technical sessions with a panel discussion on “Managing Maintenance for Operations Excellence”.  The panel consisted of five experienced maintenance leaders from the Gulf, Australia and the USA, and had more than 500 participants in the audience.

The conference also featured an exhibition by 55 regional and international companies of which 32 were official sponsors of the event. The exhibition covered a wide array of the latest technologies and services in the maintenance field.

It is worth noting that MAINTCON2010 was supported by the Global Forum for Maintenance and Asset Management (GFMAM). GFMAM held its semiannual meetings during the conference time and all affiliates, including GSMP from the GCC, AMC of Australia, ABRAMAN from Brazil, EFNMS from Europe, and SMRP of USA attended the meetings and the conference. At the conference, GSMP also signed an agreement with SMRP to adopt the Certified Maintenance & Reliability Professional (CMRP) certification as the standard for maintenance and reliability professionals in the GCC region. The conference indeed was an international event.

The conference, from start to end, was a success. The delegates’ enthusiasm to learn and network with each other was awesome. The high level of interest was there from the inauguration to the closing with over packed technical workshops and sessions. The conference organizers were overwhelmed with this success and the fact all the set targets were exceeded. The conference organizers announced that the next conference, MAINTCON2012 will be held on December 2012.
