An official call for papers to be delivered at PLASTIC PIPES XIX Conference and Exhibition has been issued by event organizers. Deadline for submission of abstracts is 31 October 2017. The Conference and Exhibition will take place in Las Vegas, US at the Red Rock Resort on the 24 – 26 September 2018.

Subject matter for papers will typically cover market issues, plastic pipeline solutions, application areas, processing, test methods, performance and sustainability. Potential presenters are invited to submit a maximum 300 word abstract in the English language. Title of paper, author's name, company/organization name and email address should be included. Individual company product names are not allowed.

Abstract submissions are processed through the online conference website:

Announcing the deadline, Zoran Davidovski, PPXIX Co-Chair (Technical Program) comments: “The demand for plastic pipe systems has always been underpinned by innovation. Whereas we have various categories for presentations, we are always delighted to provide our platform for communicating new developments outside of these areas. Minds within the plastic pipe world are always open!”

“Our industry and the industries that support our industry are well on track to embrace a global sales turnover of USD 500 billion by 2024. Whereas China has now become the world's largest producer of plastic pipes systems, the North American market remains optimistic particularly given the large scale replacement of antiquated non-plastic pipe systems.”

The previous Conference and Exhibition in Berlin attracted almost 450 participants from 43 countries. A total of 116 papers and 14 posters were delivered to Conference and the Exhibition was the largest ever with 39 exhibitors.

Organisers of PLASTIC PIPES XIX are the Plastic Pipes Conference Association (PPCA). A new LINKEDIN page has been created to post news updates of the main event and information on spin-off conferences hosted in those countries where the plastic pipe industry is on the verge of significant growth.
