Reliability of NDT webinar

About the event 

This one-day webinar will include two technical sessions, from 11h00-12h30 and 13h30-15h00, that will bring together experts and researchers in the field of reliability, with NDT specialists working in industry who will bring their perspectives on reliability issues and solutions.

A commercial session for exhibitors will also be held, from 12h30-13h30, to present products and services from the field of reliability. A charge of £100.00 + VAT for exhibitors will include a ten-minute slot to present or demonstrate and two reservations to the virtual Burns Supper.

In the evening, from 20h00-22h00, the event will continue with a virtual Burns Supper. With music and songs, this celebration of the life and works of Robert Burns will also include online whisky tasting. This will follow the traditional Burns Supper format and a different malt whisky will be available for each toast. Five malts will be sent out in advance, upon receipt of registration, and expert guidance from a specialist Scotch Whisky retailer will be available on the night. There will be the opportunity for groups to breakout for private chats to enable networking opportunities. Further whisky will be available to order and there will be a free raffle for a good malt. An additional charge of £25.00 + VAT per head applies for the virtual Burns Supper and registration must be received by Friday 15 January 2021 to allow delivery of the whisky tasting kit due to the impact of Covid-19 restrictions. Places are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.
