TULSA, Oklahoma, April 22, 2019/Petroleum Equipment Institute/ -- Registration and housing are open for the 2019 PEI Convention at the NACS Show. The fuel and fluid handling equipment industry’s largest annual event will be Oct. 1-4 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

Retired Lt. Col. Rob “Waldo” Waldman will deliver the Oct. 2 Kickoff Breakfast & Keynote, “Never Fly Solo.” Waldman is the author of the New York Times best-seller by the same title, a graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy and one of fewer than 200 speakers — including Ronald Reagan and Zig Ziglar — who have been inducted into the National Speakers Association Speaker Hall of Fame.

"When you register for the PEI Convention, you can add the Kickoff Breakfast & Keynote. We expect it to sell out because Waldo is such a big draw,” said Sarah West, director of education and convention at PEI.

Tickets for the Kickoff Breakfast & Keynote are $30.

Early bird full attendee registration for the 2019 PEI Convention at the NACS Show is $295 for PEI and NACS members and $495 for nonmembers through May 29.
