Dear Potential Exhibitor and Sponsor:

Thermal Imaging Conference will be held September 30 – October 3rd, 2018 at The Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort in Myrtle Beach, SC.

This is your chance to be at a place where you can network and integrate with both established and new thermographers and present your products not only at your booths personally, but also in front of everyone at the conference during meals, breaks and during formal vendor sessions. Our attendees are highly motivated to know everything about your products and we are arranging the conference so that they can do just that. Most of the attendees are small business people who are contract thermographers, so every feature you offer means something to them. This is an opportunity to showcase your products to an interested audience.

The exhibit hall is set in the main dining area so that all attendees will access the exhibits at all breaks. This will provide your company with maximum exposure to showcase your product. Below, find the information you need to take advantage of the exhibition and sponsorship opportunities, along with general seminar information.

This year’s conference will focus on “SOS – Secrets Of Success” with an emphasis on tools to Thermography from meters to alternate or complementing technology.  With ASTM standards almost requiring confirmation of anomalies, now will be the time for our attendees to properly understand the proper use of equipment.  With new and exciting opportunities with Drones, TIC 2018 will allow for specialty tracks to learn the latest and greatest.  The following application areas of infrared thermography will also be focused on:

  • Building Surveying
    • Building Moisture Detection
    • Construction Defect Testing and Commissioning
    • Roof Moisture Surveying
    • Air Leak and Heat Loss Testing in Residential, Commercial and Institutional Buildings
  • Electrical Predictive Maintenance
  • HVAC and Mechanical Applications
  • Medical IR Imaging – Veterinary and Human
  • Research and Development
  • Other specialty applications

Please consider participating in the TIC. We want to work with you to create the most successful infrared event that you have ever been to. I think you will be pleased with what you see in this document. Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss a customized solution for your company.
