The Plastic Pipes Conference Association (PPCA) reports that Plastic Pipes XX Conference and Exhibition will be hosted in Amsterdam 21 -23 September in 2020 at the Hotel Okura. Two spin-off events have also been announced: Guangzhou, China in September 2019 followed by Sydney, Australia in November 2019.
“Amsterdam is a fitting choice for PPXX. The Dutch are world renowned masters in water management. The Netherlands has also spearheaded the commercial development of plastic pipe materials, systems and technology. In addition to leading in the field of pipe collection and recycling schemes, the Dutch have been in the forefront of plastic pipe R&D.”
“Amsterdam is a vibrant and fascinating location for our conference. Its rich history of culture, arts and science are aspects to behold. Also, of interest is that Amsterdam and much of The Netherlands is below sea level. Since the 17th century, the city forefathers have constructed canals to provide transport and drainage. Today, municipal drainage, sewer and water utilities are mostly supplied by modern plastic pipes.”
Chair of the PPXIX Organizing Committee underlined the success of the Las Vegas conference. Sarah Patterson, Technical Director of the Plastics Pipe Institute, comments: “Over 400 delegates from approximately 40 countries attended PPXIX to review 93 technical papers, network at the global level and connect with the 34 exhibiting companies.”
“The world of plastic pipe technology is home to a booming market for ideas, innovation and development. Presentations were of high quality and the forum provided a genuine technical transfer of knowledge and experience from the entire global manufacturing industry."
