The 2013 MRO Materials and Asset Reliability Symposium builds on prior years’ successes by offering an even stronger platform around the power of integrating MRO with Reliability. During this event, thought leaders will impart essential skills, share experiences, and provide insight and proven strategies for navigating the road to enhanced MRO and Reliability for improved manufacturing performance.

“Understanding the symbiotic relationship between reliability and MRO is crucial to maintaining world-class operational performance. We are excited for the opportunity to offer the single platform for sharing forward-thinking, leading practices amongst top industry experts,” said Jonathan Eaton, vice president-supply chain, IHS.

The Symposium speakers will include keynote addresses from Gene Washington, former director of football operations for the NFL and 49ers wide receiver; Shaun Flaharty, North America Maintenance Director at Kraft Foods; Hank Sinclair, CEO of Sinclair Group; and track leaders from IHS, GP Allied, PCA, Sinclair Group, Lauras International, Xtivity, Net Results Group, Allied Reliability, and GP Strategies.

This conference has the distinction as the only event that brings together the topics of MRO and Asset Reliability into one integrated forum.  The event has been designed to benefit senior executives, plant management, maintenance planning and scheduling management, MRO materials management, finance, procurement management, reliability engineers, operations management, corporate reliability champions, and indirect procurement operations.  Accommodations, entertainment, and meals are included in the registration fee.

Early bird registration closes April 23, 2013. To register and for more information, visit: or call +1 (713) 499-4272.  “This event will be the most significant collaboration between a reliability company and a supply chain company to-date.  We have no doubt it will prove to be the single most valuable experience someone can attend if they are interested in linking their reliability initiative with their supply chain practice.  We could not be more excited to make this available to the reliability and MRO market place.” Says Andy Page, Principal at Allied Reliability Group.
