NDT.net at ASNT Fall Conference Nov'07 in Las Vegas

NDT.net115, Bad Breisig, Germany

By Rolf Diederichs (NDT.net)

Low International Audience


In the bags a CD-ROM of 60 papers of total 120 conference presentations. The CD was not easy to browse.
From 12-16 No. 2007 we visited and have been an exhibitor at the ASNT Fall Conference & Quality Testing Show in Las Vegas. The Riviera Hotel and convention center was an excellent location, although it looked more like we came for gaming in a casino (but that is Las Vegas).

The conference and exhibition was well attended with 1200 visitors present. Attendance breakdown showed that 70% came from United States another 20% from North and South America just 10% came from overseas countries (see diagram). When we joined 10 Years ago, we remember ASNT Fall conferences in Seattle and Pittsburgh having a much higher international audience. This may be a trend to a more open Euro-centric NDT community.

With its 130 exhibitors, the exhibition was a good chance for visitors to see what's going on in the US NDT market. Many of our NDT.net exhibitors exhibited also and we were successful in attracting 9 new companies for our online exhibition.

Again this year, NDT.net made efforts to expand the exposure of the many dedicated NDT technical writers by requesting that ASNT permit publication of the proceedings on NDT.net. Several authors voiced their opinion to us that they would prefer to see easier access to their technical writings. In spite of our efforts to develop a cooperation with ASNT (similar to other NDT Societies) to publish NDT technical materials, ASNT has opted to hold the materials to themselves. Hopefully a more open cooperation can be developed in future to the benefit of the entire NDT community.
