The most important aspect of Windrock is YOU, the customer. That’s why our Annual Users’ Group Conference is all about our customers and giving them an opportunity to come together, share experiences, and learn from industry leaders in reciprocating machinery analysis.
The three-day educational conference is a forum for Windrock users to learn from each other in a group environment. The conference includes presentations from Windrock’s Technical Services group, presentations from featured guest speakers, group discussions where we encourage users to share their field experience/methods, and case studies presented by users which demonstrate problem-solving at its best. We also discuss new technology as well as new features and functions that have been added to our products during the past year.
We also find time for some family fun as we host a Welcome Reception on the eve of the conference, allowing everyone a chance to get to know each other. Another evening, we host a family event at an area attraction that includes dinner and entertainment. We encourage all of our attendees to join in this annual event and experience Southern hospitality at its finest.

Join us for an unforgettable evening at Mardi Gras World! Mardi Gras World offers an authentic Mardi Gras experience like no other!
Behind the Scenes Tour: Our evening will begin with a private behind the scenes tour through Blaine Kern Studios, an operating workshop that has created breathtaking floats for Mardi Gras and other parades around the world since 1947. You will see firsthand what it takes to bring Mardi Gras to life year after year. This all-access opportunity winds you through the massive studio, where artists and architects build Mardi Gras floats from the ground up. You’ll learn about the history of this unique and festive tradition, going beyond its reputation to get a deeper understanding of the REAL Mardi Gras. The whole family will love touring the space where our artisans create show-stopping floats for more than 40 parades each year.
