Ensure successful collaboration between contracting parties at every interface
On 24th-26th October 2016, interface managers, project professionals, EPCs, project owners, and other professionals involved with managing interfaces on engineering and construction projects will gather from various industry sectors to discuss the interface management (IM) related practices, successes, and challenges they have experienced on their projects. Presentations will include a spectrum of topics that offer information for those new to or considering interface management for their projects all the way to in-depth analysis on interface management performance and optimization techniques. In addition to discussing their experiences with IM, presenters and attendees will discuss the path forward for this discipline.

"If you have any interest in why your project is having schedule and cost issues, you need to find out more about interface management." John Thropp, Interface Lead on the Maria project, Wintershall
"A very good opportunity to share if what I am doing is in line with what my colleagues and peers are doing. If I had the opportunity I would definitely attend again. I strongly recommend all interface managers from owners to contractors to attend this event."
"There was a lot of key takeaways from this conference. The main one being complexity, during the conference the term complexity came up a lot. It was really interesting to see the differing complexities across different types of projects across oil and gas and in the rail industry too. It was really interesting to see how the differing projects managed those complexities using interface management."
"I would definitely recommend the conference to my colleagues, it had people from around the globe attending, from different types of projects and of differing scales. We heard from the oil and gas industry as well as rail and so this is a really good forum where your experiences can be shared as well as receive the experiences of others."
"I would recommend the Interface Management Conference as it allows you to get experience from others in the industry so that you do not make the same mistakes yourself and you can learn from what they have implemented."
