Dear friends and colleagues,

During this time, the conference has built and maintains the status of a top event that brings together top managers and maintenance specialists, representatives of companies offering new services and maintenance products, as well as practitioners and academics.
      The mission of the conference from its origin is to: “Provide state-of-art information of high professional value and create favourable conditions for exchange of experience among maintenance professionals from Slovakia and abroad“. The conference proves its prominent positions by high number of over 200 domestic and foreign participants.
