EASA Conference 2016 - Marseille
13/10/16 Highlights of the EASA Conference 2016
EMiR attend the EASA European and World Chapter Convention in Marseille.
The Huffington Post described the destination, Marseille as France's oldest city discovered 2600 years ago, 300 days of sunshine a year, sandy beaches, coastal roads, a thriving old port guarded by two fortresses and French-Mediterranean cuisine. Marseille is perfect for all types of travellers, from the sun catcher to the history buff, the foodie to the modern art enthusiast.
…and it didn’t disappoint, an ideal location for EASA Region 9 partners to “Prepare the Service Future”. Through a variety of mediums including business sessions, face to face meetings, presentations and networking EASA developed a packed programme for members across Europe with the ultimate aim to discuss the changing world of repair and service and create strategies for future success.
(Wim Vancauwenberghe, Director of Bemas, the Belgian Maintenance Association. Wim was introducing his association to EASA members and discussing the general challenges in maintenance management in Europe and EASA/BEMAS partnership targets and expected Benefits.)
The Electrical Apparatus Service Association, Inc. (EASA) is an international trade organisation of nearly 1,800 electromechanical sales and service firms in 63 countries.

The Karsten Moholt Exceptional Achievement Award is made annually in the memory of Karsten Moholt and Karsten Aleksander Moholt who are past Presidents and Regional Director of EASA European & World Chapter. Their exceptional guidance and leadership of the region 9 chapter is remembered by awarding young people, under the age of 30, within the industry who have demonstrated improvements within their company up and above expectations.
