About the conference
This year's theme is ‘Partnering for Success'. Success means driving operational excellence by partnering in four main sectors, health and safety, operations and maintenance, workforce training and development, and quality assurance.

The AWEA Operations & Maintenance and Safety Conference is where the industry comes together to recognise unique challenges and identify solutions in these areas, and as the wind energy industry continues to expand, so does the need for an evolving approach to operating the nation's growing number of wind projects.

Individuals from across industry sectors and across functional disciplines will join in San Diego in February to set a vision and plan for continued and expanded operational excellence in the wind industry.
