The 2017 Opening Night Reception—a
conference kick-off tradition—opened CORROSION 2017 in New Orleans on Sunday
night as attendees and exhibitors interacted over drinks and hors d’oeuvres in
the Great Hall, and had the opportunity to catch up with old friends and make
new contacts after a day of administrative and technical meetings.
This reception, which featured wonderful food, lively jazz, and great fellowship, was co-sponsored by Carboline Company and NACE International. The two organizations are bound together by a common vision of corrosion prevention, environment preservation, and education.
