The Turbomachinery Symposium is the outstanding meeting for turbomachinery users. The members of the Advisory Committee, who provide overall guidance, are recognized leaders in the turbomachinery community. The technical program covers axial, centrifugal, screw, and reciprocating compressors, steam and gas turbines, and auxiliary equipment and services such as bearings, seals, couplings, software, analysis, etc.
The Symposium is an outstanding value for users concerned with maintenance, performance, troubleshooting, operation, and purchase of turbomachinery. The program includes short courses (full day on Monday), lectures, tutorials, discussion groups, user case studies, and a major exhibit of products and services. Persons attending the technical sessions will get copies of the presentations, which will not be included in the Proceedings.
The program is specifically structured to meet the needs of employees with an increasing degree of responsibility for rotating equipment. Many companies have found the Turbomachinery Symposium to be an ideal source for meeting their continuing education, professional development, and training requirements.
The technical sessions and the exhibits do not overlap, enabling attendees to concentrate on both program aspects. The program provides an opportunity for attendees to select those lectures and tutorials that best meet their personal and professional needs and interests.
The trade show exhibits feature products from more than 220 companies with about 425 booths. Exhibiting companies normally send their "first-team" players to this symposium; hence, attendees can get knowledgeable help at the exhibit hall, in addition to seeing major exhibits of equipment.
The Turbomachinery Laboratory is a part of the Texas Engineering Experiment Station and the Texas A&M University System. They are a nonprofit entity. All proceeds from the Turbomachinery Symposium are used to support education and research activities in turbomachinery.
