Plastic Pipe Conference a Success Says PPCA
Nov 30, 2017
The Plastic Pipes Conference Association (PPCA) has reported that the impact and attendance of its spin-off conferences are playing a significant role in promoting the technical and commercial development of this global industry.
300 participants recently attended Pipes XI, the PPCA's spin-off conference and exhibition held in Johannesburg in September this year. This event was hosted by the PPCA in conjunction with Southern African Plastic Pipe Manufacturers Association (SAPPMA). Delegates represented water, gas, sewer and telecom utility companies, pipe manufacturers, raw material suppliers, consulting engineers and technical institutes. A total of 35 papers that reviewed technical as well as business developments were delivered throughout the two-day event.
Zoran Davidovski, Technical Chair of the PPCA, comments: “The growth in attendance of our spin-off conferences and exhibitions is a reflection of a global industry that is constantly enhancing all aspects of its value chain. Such ceaseless technical innovation is driven by human inspiration. Replacement of aged and leaking non-plastic pipes with modern, durable and sustainable plastic pipe systems is advancing public health and wellbeing for millions of people throughout the world. Our conferences facilitate that communication purpose and process.”
Organizers of the main PPCA event that takes place every two years have also announced that conference papers for PLASTIC PIPES XVIII in Berlin have been posted to their website. A total of 130 papers are now freely available for download at: http://www.plasticpipesconference.com/
450 participants from 43 countries attended this conference and exhibition in September 2016. It is also important to note that the Berlin event showcased 39 exhibitors - making it the largest ever exhibition of its kind.
