Trade show organizers KCI Corporation and Messe Düsseldorf North America have announced a partnership on two new events that will be held next year in Houston.

They already team up on the Valve World Americas Expo & Conference, also held in Houston.  

The first new event is a new pump event called Pump Summit Americas, which will take place June 13-14, 2016, at the George R. Brown Convention Center.

The two-day conference and exhibition is powered by Pump Engineer, Pumpen Aktuell and Empowering Pumps.

“We are excited to introduce a new pump event to North America. Pump Summit Americas will be a conference and exhibition that caters to pump experts across industries,” Sarah Schroer, conference manager, Pump Summit Americas.

Pump Summit Americas aims to form a pump community across several industries, according to show organizers.

Along with oil and  gas, the event will also welcome those from water and wastewater, chemical processing, mining, pulp & paper, petrochemical, power generation, industrial processing, food and beverage and pharmaceutical.

The second new event, Fugitive Emissions Summit Americas, will be powered by the well-established Valve World.

Through its 'Focused on What Matters: Embracing Humanity and Protecting the Planet' philosophy, MGM Resorts commits to creating a more sustainable future, while striving to make an impact in the lives of employees, guests, and the communities in which it operates. Water Stewardship Efforts MGM Resorts understands the importance of using water efficiently, especially in the desert destination of Las Vegas. Conserving water has always been part of the mission, but MGM Resorts has expanded its ambition into water stewardship. In 2022, MGM Resorts President and CEO Bill Hornbuckle signed the CEO Water Mandate—a UN Global Compact initiative mobilizing business leaders to advance water stewardship. MGM Resorts International was the first gaming company to take this important step. MGM Resorts replaced 200,000 square feet of real grass with drought-tolerant landscaping in Las Vegas. MGM Resorts pledges to reduce water withdrawal intensity by 33% by 2025 and by 35% by 2030. From 2007-2021, use of more than 5.6 billion gallons of water was avoided because of conservation efforts. Caring for One Another MGM Resorts’ Food Donations Program collects and preserves unserved food from conventions held at MGM Resorts properties, then safely donates to food insecure people in the community. Since the program’s launch in 2016, more than 3.7 million meals toward a 2025 goal of 5 million meals have been donated into the community. Donations include: Unserved perishable prepared foods from events Perishable unprepared food from MGM Resorts’ kitchens Nonperishable food items from minibars and warehouses The collaboration with Southern Nevada’s primary food bank, Three Square, has developed the infrastructure needed to safely collect, transport, and store food from MGM Resorts properties in Las Vegas, reducing food waste while serving the community.

By cultivating innovative strategies that consider multiple perspectives and viewpoints, the company creates an inclusive workplace culture that benefits its employees and community.
