IAMERS in Barcelona

by Philip F. Jacobus, CEO | September 23, 2015
Last week I was in Barcelona — a very lovely city with great food — to attended the IAMERS meeting.

As usual, it was an event that brought together a wonderful group of people and many interesting ideas were discussed.

David Hurlock, from Varian Medical Systems, lectured on the benefits of anode end grounded (AEG) X-ray tubes, which have the potential to have a powerful impact on imaging.

Manuel Alonso, an attorney from Barcelona, spoke eloquently on data security and offered some tips on how to protect oneself.

Chuck Gauthier discussed the parts industry and the factors impacting that segment.

There was also a session in which all the attendees had a chance to speak for a few moments about how they can help their fellow members — and how their fellow members can help them.

Overall, it was a very productive meeting. Diana Upton, the IAMERS president, did her usual magic organizing cocktails, meals and social events.

She received a much deserved standing ovation.
