The International Titanium Association (ITA) is hosting the first annual International anTi-Corrosion Conference. The event will be held in conjunction with Titanium USA 2017 on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at the Diplomat Resort & Spa in Hollywood, Florida. 

The brand-new event is designed for the reactive metals industry. Distinguished speakers from chemical processing and other industries using titanium and other corrosion resistant alloys will discuss topics of interest to owners, design engineers, plant engineers, maintenance engineers, reliability engineers and quality assurance engineers.

The keynote speaker is Astronaut Mike Mullane presenting on, "Stopping Normalization of Deviance." Astronaut Mullane uses the space shuttle Challenger disaster to define this term, its safety consequences and how individuals and teams can defend themselves from the phenomenon.

The event also features ten other speakers discussing topics such as "Choosing the Best Reactive Metals for use in Corrosive Environments," "Considerations While Selecting Materials of Construction for Chemical Process Equipment in Nitric Acid Service” and "Microbiologically Induced Corrosion Effects on Titanium and Other Metals."
