Jun 19, 2019
The Plastic Pipes Conference Association (PPCA) has issued a call for papers to be presented at its next conference and exhibition, Plastic Pipes XX. Hosted in Amsterdam at the Hotel Okura, this event will be held September 21 - 23, 2020.
“The main program will comprise approximately 100 presentations relating to the design and development, testing, installation and operation of plastic pipes systems,” stated Sarah Patterson, Co-chair and Technical Program Manager of PPXX.
“The papers will detail technical solutions or developments addressing engineering issues using plastic pipes systems or components. Also, papers identifying market trends for future growth of plastic pipes and components will be accepted for consideration.”
2020 is seen as a landmark year for the plastic pipe industry. Zoran Davidovski, Chair of the PPXX Organizing Committee, is confident of further market growth. “Our technology and commerce have always been propelled by ceaseless innovation throughout the entire supply chain. This call for papers is expected to harvest some commercially significant developments from Europe and particularly from North America and China where current growth in demand is significant.”
“New materials, applications and scientific advances are about to change the world of plastic pipe systems in many respects and Amsterdam will provide a global medium for their communication.”
Conference topic areas include market issues, plastic pipeline solutions, application areas for plastic pipes, processing, test methods and performance of plastic pipes and fittings, sustainability and case studies. The full list of key subjects is posted on the conference web page.
“In 2018, more than 400 delegates from 40 countries attended PPXIX in Las Vegas to review 93 technical papers, network at global level and connect with the 33 exhibiting companies," remarked Patterson. “Presentations were of high quality and the forum provided a genuine technical transfer of knowledge and experience from the entire global industry. Our PPCA conferences typically serve as a platform to facilitate communication between all stakeholders in the plastic pipe industry.”
Alternating between the United States and Europe every even numbered year, the three-day Plastic Pipes Conference and Exhibition is the largest event of its kind which is focused solely on plastic pipe systems and applications.
The event is hosted by the PPCA members: PE 100+ Association, Plastics Pipe Institute, Inc. (PPI) and The European Plastic Pipes and Fittings Association (TEPPFA).
