Dear NGSTech Attendees,
During a recent board meeting held Thursday, May 23, it was agreed to cease all current and future operations of NGSTech. We are deeply proud of what we’ve accomplished over the past 12 years and six conferences, and I want to thank you all for being a part of it. The original spirit of the conference was to further the science of sample conditioning by sharing research being performed on the topic. In many ways we have succeeded in helping the industry as a whole to understand the necessity and the importance of sample conditioning systems in our cooperative efforts to improve measurement accuracy. Market conditions have changed dramatically since the start of the conference and it has become increasingly difficult to provide innovative yet non-proprietary content.
Also, while we have continually been able to attract interested audiences, we have never been able to reach broad audiences like other industry events. We feel future efforts should continue to be placed on industry schools like ISHM, ASGMT and other regional measurement conferences. With this in mind, it is our desire to use any remaining NGSTech assets to start a scholarship endowment for ISHM in Don Mayeaux’s name. Thank you again for being a part of this journey with us.
