PPXX "A Success" - Next Time in Lake Buena Vista: PPXXI
Sep 24, 2021
Organizers of the 20th Plastic Pipe Conference & Exhibition (PPXX) in Amsterdam report on the event’s success. Also announced is that PPXXI will be hosted 26 – 28 September 2023, in Lake Buena Vista (near Orlando), USA.
Commenting on last week’s Conference in The Netherlands, Zoran Davidovski (PPXX Chairman) remarks: “Covid constraints of limiting delegate numbers to a total of 120 attendees were challenging. However, such limitations did not detract from reviewing latest developments in the industry or from networking between delegates.”
Davidovski reports that 49 technical and commercial papers were delivered in Amsterdam to delegates from 19 countries. “All presentations provided at PPXX were recorded,” he explains. “These presentations will be combined with additional recorded presentations from the original technical program in PPXX Online. This complete video program will comprise almost 100 papers and will be available within the next few months.”
The PPXX Chairman is particularly grateful for the support of event sponsors and exhibitors at PPXX. “We recognize those industry partners and their connections that make our connections so endlessly reliable.
In looking forward, the site for PPXXI has been announced. Following with tradition, the venue for the Plastic Pipe Conference alternates between either side of the Atlantic every two years. For PPXXI, The Swan in Lake Buena Vista (Florida USA), was chosen through consultation with the PPCA Board members. This property is located about 30 minutes southwest of the city of Orlando and on one of the Disney World properties.
“PPXXI Lake Buena Vista will access the imagination and creativity driven by Disney World since 1971 and even earlier from Tomorrowland which seeded the concept for the "Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow" (EPCOT),” says Sarah Patterson (PPXXI OC Chair). “The location is perfect to continue inspiring unbounded thoughts for sustainable plastic pipe systems.”
