While the University of Texas Arlington Safety Conference was humming along in the Marriott Marquis, the Texas A&M Turbomachinery and Pump Symposia (TPS) was raging across the street at the George R. Brown Convention Center, December 14 – 16. TPS is an annual event, and although the attendance was a little low, the exhibitors and presenters were still up to par. Some of the companies in attendance include Ariel, Applied Flow Technology, Atlas Copco, Elliott Group, Emerson, Sundyne, and more.
On Tuesday night, I had the pleasure of attending the Rotating Machinery Services Hospitality Suite located in the Hilton Americas. It was Casino Night!!! We enjoyed BBQ sandwiches and music provided by the very fine band, Moodafaruka. This band performs a lot of different and sophisticated styles, but I particularly like their Latin songs. As for myself, I played Blackjack all night. Man was it fun.
As you know, TPS comes around every year, so stay tuned to this website. Cheers.
