Our notes from Pittcon 2019

Kett exhibited at the 2019 Pittcon last month.   We had such a great time and met so many existing and new contacts we didn’t have a chance to write about it until now.   The Pittsburgh Conference (Pittcon) is held annually and is one of the pre-eminent technical conferences in North America.   It’s a unique gathering where scientists, industrial users, developers and dreamers convene to see the latest in measurement technology and learn about unique and novel ways users have implemented the technology.  The net – lot’s of brain power.   2019 was Kett’s 26 th year as an exhibitor.
