Dear friends, property maintenance experts and property owners!

This year's consulting and exhibition will be held under the heading Maintenance is Development to highlight the importance of maintaining property management key importance in the business of each organization for the first time. This year again we expect the involvement of the Mediterranean countries, and more than 200 participants, renowned callers from around the world, Europe, the US and the Mediterranean, which should especially focus on leaders and maintenance managers as well as professionals and asset management experts.

The Conference deals with the largest and most important infrastructure project in Croatia by building the Peljesac bridge and the challenges of future maintenance during its exploitation in its life span. The construction of Morandi Bridge in Italy has prompted everything in Europe, including Croatia, to further analysis and the adequacy of appropriate maintenance strategies. This is also the EFNMS workshop on visualization of Physical Assets Management.


The aim of the Conference is to emphasize the importance of maintaining and managing assets through the exchange of knowledge and experience of engineers, experts, scientists, manufacturers and equipment maintenance personnel. Our wish is that the gathering and communication of experts and scientists in the field of maintenance and exhibition and presentation of equipment manufacturers will stimulate new and useful topics in professional and research work related to maintenance and engineering in the broader sense. The choice of the venue for this year's consultation is related to the gathering of experts in the maintenance and management of property from the Mediterranean countries with three continents. Eminent lecturers from Croatia, Europe and the world are the curiosity of the content of consulting from various fields of energy, construction, oil, pharmaceutical and food industries.

THE SECOND DAY OF CONFERENCE is foreseen for presenting papers on topics that are traditionally present at counseling. Each topic unit of counseling begins with the lectures of invited lecturers.

Based on the received summaries, it can be concluded that topics from the field of quality management in maintenance as well as the introduction of new modern maintenance technologies are mostly occupied by experts and scientists. Also, the increased use of information (smart) systems in maintenance as well as maintenance of electrical systems and installations is noticed.

We can announce several very interesting works from the field of maintenance of buildings, catastrophe management, example of Morandi bridge collapse as well as risk analysis and decision making in the maintenance of infrastructure buildings and bridges in Croatia especially in the example of the future Pelješac bridge. Keynote speakers are:

  • Željko Uhlir: Challanges in maintaining infrastructure with emphasis on Croatian bridges
  • Marjan Pipenbaher: The biggest challenge for maintenance experts at the Peljesac Bridge
  • Franco Santini: Maintenance Management for Plant and Infrastructures Integrity

Given the increasingly stringent requirements for environmental protection and the development of new technologies with the use of environmental fuels for the operation of internal combustion engines, it is necessary to adapt the maintenance systems, as warned by our specialists. An important ecological theme is also waste management, which will also be discussed in counseling.

All accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings and the Book of Abstracts, which will be given to the participants when they arrive at the counseling. The official languages of the consultations are Croatian and English.
