Every two years, The Plastic Pipes Conference Association (PPCA) hosts a global event to review latest developments, best practices and emerging trends for plastic pipe systems. It was announced that the next PLASTIC PIPES XIX Conference and Exhibition will take place in Las Vegas, US at the Red Rock Resort from 24 to 26 September 2018!
The PPXIX Conference is expected to be slightly larger in scale and scope than the previous one held in 2016 in Berlin, and is expected to host almost 500 participants from over 45 countries.
The choice of location for the next conference is also quite a symbolic one, as according to conference Chairman Zoran Davidovski:
Nevada is the driest state in the US and is rapidly becoming a showcase for water management on a world scale. Plastic pipes are playing a vital role there in water harvesting, drainage and delivery.
TEPPFA is proud to announce its participation, as well as sponsorship of the conference’s Gala Dinner on 25th September 2018. Other conference participants include raw material suppliers, additive manufacturers, major water, sewer, gas and telecom utilities, plastic pipe manufacturers, specifiers, pipe machine fabricators, testing laboratories, certifying agencies, standards organizations and technical institutes.
The conference provides a great opportunity for business and technology delegates to meet and discuss such relevant topics as industry developments, application improvements, processing, test methods, system design, performance and sustainability.
If you are interested in participating in the conference in Las Vegas there is an Early Bird registration fee available until May 1st 2018. Also organizations can benefit from becoming the PPXIX Conference sponsors, with different packages available on the conference website.
Finally, you can submit a paper which will be delivered at the PPXIX Conference and Exhibition, with a deadline for submission of abstracts being 31 October 2017.
