Digital Imaging and Ultrasonics for NDT 2018

Foxwoods Resort
Mashantucket, CT
24 - 26 July 2018

Topical Chair – Bob Feole, Feole Technologies
Technical Program Chairs – Fred Morro, VJ Technologies, Larry Mullins, NXT NdT Inc.; Ed Cabral, Sonatest Ltd.; Vijay Alreja, VJ Technologies

The Digital Imaging and Ultrasonics for NDT Conferences are combining!

Based on attendee feedback, we are merging the two programs into one, comprehensive NDT Conference, covering both methods and technologies.

The X-ray inspection system market is expected to be worth USD 860.5 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 6.51% between 2017 and 2023. The digital imaging technique is expected to hold a larger share of this market during the forecast period. The global ultrasonic non-destructive testing (NDT) equipment market will grow steadily during the next two years and post a CAGR of almost 6% by 2020.

These two volumetric methods are related yet different. The DI/UT 2018 ASNT Topical Conference will cover the basic fundamentals as well as the latest developments of each NDT method, providing one forum for sharing the respective pros and cons.

Unauthorized Housing Warning

Unfortunately, it is now common practice for unauthorized companies to claim to be official housing providers for trade shows and other large events, including ASNT conferences. Usually called “room poachers,” these companies target exhibitors and attendees with aggressive emails or phone calls claiming to offer supposed discounts on hotel rooms or incorrectly stating that room blocks are nearing or at capacity. The room poachers often don’t deliver on promises to customers. When customers arrive, reservations are non-existent or the hotels are not conveniently located. Sometimes the rooms have been cancelled and hefty cancellation fees have been placed on the customer’s credit card.

Please be vigilant if contacted by any company or service that implies or claims to be an official housing provider for ASNT. ASNT IS NOT affiliated with third-party travel agents, wholesalers or other outside agencies claiming to offer hotel reservations. The only way to book your rooms for ASNT is to use the channels provided on our website. If you are contacted by one of these pirate companies, please notify ASNT staff immediately. Below are company names that have been provided to us by our members, attendees and exhibitors. This list is not complete and new company names will be added as we are made aware of them.

  • Corporate Booking Services – CBS International
  • Global EXPO LIST
  • Global Housing Services, Corp.
  • Prodataleads.com
  • Travel Group Partners / TGP Marketing Corp.

Increase your name awareness and product visibility by sponsoring an ASNT event!

As a sponsor, you will reach each event attendee on the show floor and beyond. A sponsorship increases your company's visibility to NDT decision makers, your current customers, and prospective clients. You'll also benefit from additional exposure though pre-event promotional materials, in print and online.

We provide a variety of sponsorships at each of our trade shows. Contact Ruth Staat at rstaat@asnt.org to discuss sponsorship opportunities for your company today.
