The Texas A&M University Turbomachinery and Pump Symposia was held from September 30th to October 3rd, 2013, Houston, Texas. The event took place at the George R. Brown Convention Center, and included conference and exhibiton. Moreover, the evenings were filled with drinks, dinner, and socializing sponsored by attending corporations at hospitality suites located within the Hilton Americas - situated right across the street from the George R. Bown Convention Center.
A notable hospitality suite was the one sponsored by Kobelco Compressors. The suite featured perfomances from the Houston Dynamo Girls (see slide show on the left hand side). In addition to free drinks and food, the company set up a photographer that allowed attendees to have their pictures taken with the lovely Dynamo Girls.
Moreover, music entertainment was provided by The Dusty Spur Band (www.dustyspurband.com). This band plays some of the most authentic country and western music to be found anywhere. The Dusty Spur is a real delight to hear.
If you missed the Symposia and the Kobelco hospitality suite, then "woo hoo boy did you miss out". So mark your calendars for next year. The next Symposia is to be held at the same place/same time. See you then.
