HECO announces symposium dates in Kentucky

Bourbon lovers, rejoice. History buffs, autumn travelers, and maintenance junkies—this too is for you.

HECO has announced that the 2023 RPM Symposium will be taking a road trip to Lexington, Ky., from October 3-4, the company said in an email to Electrical Apparatus, adding: "Mark your calendars and be on the lookout for more news to come!"

RPM (Reliability Process & Maintenance) Symposium is a FREE Midwest-based conference event where "end users can network and learn about industrial facilities, reliability, maintenance best practices, electric motor driven powertrains, IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) Solutions, and so much more," HECO says, adding that "this conference is not full of sales pitches – it is real technology and education right in front of your eyes." Last year's event featured 38 educational presentations, drew over 300 attendees, and included 126 participating companies.
