Among the newer technologies on display were oil-free compressors that make use of magnetic bearings, pumps equipped with robust control panels, and boilers designed to simplify the setup and commissioning of equipment and heating systems.

The event also included a number of seminars and award presentations.

Parting Shot: Going for gold?

It looks like the White House may have to settle for option number two. After submitting a request to borrow Vincent van Gogh’s Landscape in the Snow from The Guggenheim in New York, the museum instead offered to lend a golden toilet to the official residence and workplace of the President of the United States.

Maurizio Cattelan’s “America” is a fully-functional, 18-karat gold toilet that was put on display at the museum in 2016. The Italian artist’s golden spectacle, which was recently removed from display, had allowed visitors to do their business in his creative work, which has been estimated to contain as much as $1 million worth of gold.

White House staff have yet to confirm or deny whether there will be a golden loo in their future.
