WESTERN AREA CONFERENCE
Welcome to the 2014 Western Area Conference! The Puget Sound Section is excited to host the premier corrosion conference for the western United States. As many of you are already aware, the Puget Sound area is home to one of the most diverse corrosion communities in the world including the services required for a large metropolitan area such as water, wastewater, transportation, and gas; one of the country's largest Navy bases; and thriving aerospace and shipping industries. In fact one doesn’t have to go far to see the work that goes into addressing corrosion in the northwest - just look at the coating systems on one of Seattle's top tourist attractios... the Washington State ferries!
Stemming from this diversity is a corrosion industry that is experienced and knowledgeable in a variety of corrosion fields and looking to provide attendees with this specialized knowledge. Presentations will address a range of topics including corrosion in reinforced concrete structures, microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC), corrosion in marine and seawater environments, coatings and fireproofing, metalizing, corrosion in aeronautical and aerospace industries, cathodic protection, and IRT stray current issues.
The conference will be held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in downtown Seattle. The hotel is immediately adjacent to some of Seattle’s best shopping (including the original Nordstrom store) and dining. A short walk away is Seattle’s famous Pike Place Market and waterfront. From Jimi Hendrix to Heart to Nirvana to Maclemore, the music scene in Seattle is always outstanding and just a few blocks from the hotel.
