Dear friends and colleagues,

     After the forced break caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, we would like to announce the holding of the international conference National Forum on Maintenance 2021. Due to the continuing unfavourable situation, the conference is postponed from May to October 26-27, 2021.

     We hope that despite difficult circumstances in all areas of life, the conference will continue to maintain its position as the top maintenance event in Slovakia, which brings together top managers and maintenance specialists, representatives of companies offering innovative products and services for maintenance, as well as experts from practice and academia.

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“.

     We invite you again to share your experience and to introduce progressive methods and solutions that you apply in challenging maintenance conditions, to introduce new products and technologies that lead to higher effectiveness, quality and safety in maintaining the value of physical assets.
