IR/INFO 2024 a Smashing Success!

Burlington, NJ  January 29, 2024 --- Infraspection Institute’s IR/INFO Conference was recently held in Orlando, FL.  IR/INFO 2024 marks the 34th anniversary for the advanced training conference, technical symposium, and technology expo.  IR/INFO was attended by infrared thermographers, PdM technologists, and building inspection professionals from around the world who enjoyed four days of networking, learning, and fun in a relaxed and professional atmosphere.

Jim Seffrin, Director of Infraspection Institute, states, “We were extremely pleased with this year’s IR/INFO conference.  With 7 short courses and over 20 technical presentations, this year’s conference covered a wide range of infrared applications including, but not limited to: new equipment and technologies, safety, optical gas imaging, building inspections, and legal issues.  We thank our exhibitors, our speakers, and all who attended and helped to make this year’s conference our best ever.”

On display in the Technology Showcase were the latest in infrared hardware and software, IR windows, condition-based monitoring tools, safety equipment, and offerings by a host of service providers. Sunday evening’s Welcome Reception and dinner provided attendees with an opportunity to relax and network.

Another highlight of the conference occurred on Tuesday evening when guests were treated to a cocktail reception sponsored by TI Reporter™ software. Following the reception, attendees strolled International Drive to enjoy local cuisine at the city’s acclaimed restaurants while enjoying the mild weather.

One of the many benefits enjoyed by IR/INFO attendees was the opportunity to share knowledge and information ‘across the aisle’ with some of the world’s most experienced professionals.   Andy Starnes had this to say about his first IR/INFO experience: “This is a great opportunity for learning and networking.  I highly recommend this conference!”

First-time attendee Beth Parker was equally impressed and shared the following: “This conference is so well put together.  The sessions and speakers were very informative and engaging.  The Infraspection team has so much knowledge and they are happy to share it with the wonderful community they have built.  I want my whole team here next year!”

Jim Seffrin concludes: “Plans for Infraspection Institute’s next IR/INFO event are already well underway.  IR/INFO 2025 will be held at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando, FL January 19 – 22, 2025.  We look forward to seeing everyone again next year for another fun-filled and informative event.”
