EuroMaintenance: A great venue for all involved with asset and maintenance management
EuroMaintenance is a great venue for all involved with asset and maintenance management in one way or another.
It goes without saying that the presentations and the presenters in Rotterdam were different in many ways; what was addressed, how it was addressed and the overall context. After all, it is an art in itself to be able to “draw” whatever the presenter wants to draw in 30 minutes in such a way that the audience will be wide awake and can grasp the big picture with a “suitable” amount of detail.
When you add many presentations together, an even bigger picture emerges illustrating the current situation and the near challenges that we face as human beings, employees, citizens and nations in the field of assets and maintenance. The challenges today obviously include getting more young people on board and contributing to the overall goal of a more sustainable world and less waste. The five of us that came from the land of ice and fire were not let down by Ellen, Ian, others at the Dutch Maintenance Society (NVDO) and Ahoy employees. They all did a great job organising the event in a professional and courteous style, making us feel very welcome. Thank you!

To be able to respond to current developments and trends in society, it is of vital importance for organizations to focus on the sustainable employability of assets.
The Swedish Maintenance Society (SVUH) celebrated its 50th birthday in 2019. For the Society it is important to remain at the forefront of the maintenance industry, and to overcome the challenges of the time stronger than ever.
