2021 Inspection and Mechanical Integrity Summit

Registration Coming Soon

When: June 07, 2021 - June 10, 2021

Where:  San Antonio, Texas

Save the date for the next installment of the API Inspection and Mechanical Integrity Summit, scheduled for June 7-10, 2021 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas, USA.

After extensive consideration, the 2021 Inspection Summit planning committee made the decision to move the conference from the Galveston Island Convention Center, which has been home to the Summit since its beginnings in 2007. During that time, attendance grew from approximately 600 participants to over 1700 participants in 2019 – including almost 100 exhibitors - necessitating a larger venue.

The Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center will also allow for more exhibitors, increasing both networking and solution sharing opportunities.

A Call for Abstracts/Presentations and information for sponsors and exhibitors will be available late 2020. The API Summit is the only networking event for inspectors and other inspection support professionals in the industry. As stated by attendees, "The API Summit is the best inspection related conference in the petroleum industry".
