Largest-Ever Best Practices 2023 EXPO Featuring Compressed Air Innovations


The 5th annual and largest-ever Best Practices 2023 EXPO & Conference is taking place October 23-25, 2023 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL and will co-locate with Process Expo. Manufacturing, engineering firm and equipment sales personnel will meet, on the EXPO Floor, with the leading global manufacturers of compressed air, vacuum and cooling/chilled water technologies. Early-Bird EXPO Registration rates are $50 and grant access to both Expos.

Co-Sponsored by the Compressed Air & Gas Institute, who is offering on-site their Certified Compressed Air System Specialist (CCASS) Exam, the Best Practices EXPO will display the latest compressed air innovations in air compressors, compressed air purification, aluminum piping, pneumatics, leak detection and compressed air measurement instruments.

Air Compressor Technologies (fixed, VSD, variable capacity drives; water- and air-cooled)
