This year's topics include: 

  • How to successfully carry out cost and time effective inspections and post repair refurbishment 

  • The role of drone inspections with other conventional methods and picture categorisation and prioritisation 

  • EXCLUSIVE PRODUCT LAUNCH!  World-first ground based thermographic inspection by Hensoldt (part of Airbus)

  • A panel discussion on why is so crucial to have a unified damage classification and standardisation approach?

  • Getting over the "wait and see" apporach through condition monitoring and asset management strategies

  • Nordex Case Study on service requirements and how this is driving blade manufacturing and design

  • The most top-notch retrofit and life extension solutions 

PLUS, be ready for PITCH ME! - a live judging competition for start ups and small technology providers.
