Maintenance Experts Convene at the EuroMaintenance 2014 Congress

The 22nd EuroMaintenance - European Congress & Expo on Maintenance and Asset Management, organised at Messukeskus Helsinki on 5–7 May 2014, was a success. The congress, organised every two years, was hosted by Finland for the third time. Simultaneously, one of the programme tracks included the 6th World Congress & Global Forum on Maintenance and Asset Management.

The Congress brought together around 250 experts from 40 countries. This year, as as a surprise to the organisers, the second-largest number of participants came from Saudi Arabia. Most participants were from Finland. The EuroMaintenance Expo exhibition, organised in connection with the Conference on 6–8 May 2014, attracted around 50 exhibitors.

“The organisers of EuroMaintenance, and guests, were extremely satisfied with the modern facilities and excellent service that Messukeskus Helsinki provided. Food was particularly praised as the diverse range of options offered something suitable for all international participants,” said EuroMaintenance Project Manager Elisa Numminen of the Finnish Maintenance Society Promaint.

The reception hosted by the City of Helsinki at the City Hall on the first evening, and the gala dinner at Vanha Ylioppilastalo on the second evening, also received positive feedback from participants. “All in all, a very successful and highly appreciated entity,” said Matti Niemelä, Office Manager of the Finnish Maintenance Society Promaint.

Promaint, the Finnish organiser of the EuroMaintenance Conference, organised the conference in cooperation with the EFNMS, the European Federation of National Maintenance Societies.
