Why attend the MPD Annual Meeting?

It has always been the goal of this meeting to bring together those from operating companies, engineering, academia and equipment or service suppliers in a setting which could provide an atmosphere of professionalism combined with a relaxed "get together" attitude to facilitate the exchange of ideas, knowledge and experience.

The MPD meeting was also designed to provide invaluable contact and networking possibilities for attendees in a forum which attracts those from upper level positions of major companies. It is also a great time to re-kindle old friendships and establish new ones.
