When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. That's one way to look at the state of things in 2020, a year like none before. The pandemic's impact on life 'as usual' is profound and widespread. But we adapt. Such is the case with the petroleum dispensing industry's most important annual gathering. The PEI@ the NACS Show is going virtual this year November 10-12.
“The virtual show means attendees can set their calendars now for the sessions, Q&A’s, networking groups and exhibits they want to attend,” said Rick Long, executive vice president and general counsel at PEI in a news release.
As usual, Husky Corporation will be well-represented. Instead of a large booth on the convention floor, there will be virtual opportunities to learn about the company's latest product offerings. Here are a few samples:

Husky metallurgist and quality manager Steve Baynham will present at a PEI Virtual Breakout Session session on Wednesday November 11 at 11am. The important topic will be "The Conundrum of Sanitizing Dispensers & Hanging Hardware". If you are registered for the virtual convention, hear Steve breakdown what is happening.
- If you noticed increased equipment damage, your cleaning solution could be the culprit.
- Most cleansing solutions contain some form of bleach, which will literally eat away aluminum (causing nozzle failures).
- Similar issues--with different causes--have occurred with touch screens and the plastic buttons on dispensers.
- While contact with contaminated surfaces may now be second to the dangers of aerosolized droplets as a priority in combating the COVID19 virus, people still need to feel that "something" is being done to keep things clean.
The full schedule and registration details (the fees are lower than for the traditional in-person convention, which could mean more people are able to participate) are at https://www.pei.org/show/schedule.
