A comprehensive series of events covering a wide range of subjects of interest to members of the NDT and condition monitoring community is arranged each year. These pages include some details of those exhibitions, symposia and conferences organised by BINDT as well as other societies and organisations throughout the world. 

The Institute's Annual NDT Conference is traditionally held in September and its Annual Condition Monitoring Conference is traditionally held in early summer and both provide the opportunity for everyone involved in NDT and CM, from practitioners to academics, specialist to generalists, to meet in comfortable surroundings, learn from people eminent in their field, and exchange news and views with colleagues as well as at the same time renewing friendships and making new ones. With many technical presentations in parallel and poster sessions over the three days and social events with a local flavour, business and pleasure are combined to ensure that there really is something for everyone.

The Institute's Materials Testing exhibition is the industry's international showcase. This biennial event is the most comprehensive international exhibition in testing for quality, materials testing, mechanical testing, condition monitoring and diagnostic engineering - the premier show for manufacturers, service industries and users of quality testing.

As well as co-sponsoring events organised by other societies, The Institute also from time to time arranges and manages conferences and seminars on behalf of other organisations.

Members obtain a discount when attending any of the Institute's seminars or conferences.

The Institute's Branches are spread throughout the UK and a welcome awaits anyone who wishes to attend. Many Branch meetings count towards CPD (Continuing Professional Development) requirements.

In addition to the annual conference, seminars are arranged to address the specific needs of the NDT community as and when these arise.
