2014 SPONSORS ENDORSING SPONSORS MEDIA SPONSORS 40 May - June 2014 | CoNFereNCe reVIew THANK YOU TO OUR 2014 SPONSORS! "This is a great place to come as far as networking, getting to know people and getting revitalized to go back to your job," remarked Holcim's Larry Blevins. "I have a fairly new program, so it is nice to come and talk to some people who have gone through the same thing and maybe made some mistakes I'm making. It's always nice to hear someone tell you that this is a mistake before you are about to do something." The event came to a close with two random drawings for show-prize giveaways. All registered attendees who visited each of the sponsoring exhibitors' booths were eligible to win two Craftsman extreme garage tool-sets, including workbenches, premium heavy-duty tool chests, rolling cabinets and lots of extras. The lucky winners were Richard Salazar of Southwest Research Institute and Brad Little of Greenheck Fan Corp. "I thought I was dreaming," Salazar said of hearing his name called. "I said, 'Wow, that's me.' I don't win very often. I haven't won anything in like 15 years, so I was surprised." Little was also stunned to hear his name announced. After he had driven nearly 26 hours from California to San Antonio to attend the conference, winning the show-prize giveaway helped make the journey well worth his time and effort. "This has been a fantastic experience," Little added. "I've learned a lot and met a lot of people here. It was great to meet management professionals, engineers and mechanics all on the same road to excellence." Preparations are already under way for next year's Reliable Plant Conference and Exhibition, scheduled for April 21-23, 2015, at the Cleveland Convention Center in Cleveland, Ohio.
