Plastic Pipes XVII Goes To Chicago

July 2014, Vol. 69 No. 7

For the latest trends, use and research in plastic pipe networks, attend the Plastic Pipes XVII (PPXVII) event at Chicago’s Swissôtel, Sept. 22-24.

Nominations for the Best Presentation will be judged from the 130 presentations delivered during the event.

“Our conference will clearly reflect an increasing level of sophistication in the design, manufacture and use of plastic pipe systems in these markets,” Stephen Boros, chairman of the PPXVII, said. “All parts of the world will be represented showing what they are doing with plastic piping systems. And, as a measure of its interest, China will deliver as many as 20 of these presentations.”

The main program will embrace technical and marketing issues relating to the design and development, testing, installation and operation of plastic pipe systems. Papers will offer new solutions to technical and engineering issues using plastic pipe systems and identify market and business opportunities for further growth in the use of plastic pipes worldwide.

Boros stated: “Delegates are drawn from an international community of plastic pipe and fittings producers, users and installers. Representatives from major energy, water, telecom and sewer utility companies will attend alongside those from the building sector. Also present will be industry consultants, leading technicians and engineers, suppliers of raw materials and additives as well as extrusion equipment manufacturers.”
