Conference & Exhibition on Risk Based Inspection (RBI 2016) New Delhi, India

Conference & Exhibition on Risk Based Inspection (RBI 2016) on 
26-27th August, New Delhi, India.  

Risk Based Inspection & Maintenance Summit (RBI 2016) is the first initiative in India and one of the few initiatives in the world to conduct a technical summit solely on Risk Based Inspection Technology. RBI 2016 will provide an effective platform for Maintenance, Inspection, Operation & Corrosion professionals across industry, research institutions and academia for exchanging ideas, acquiring knowledge / information regarding existing and upcoming products and technologies. India being a developing large country, comprising more than 23 refineries, hundreds of petrochemical and process plants. Till now, Risk based Inspection is in the nascent stage and has enormous scope and business opportunity.
