SAPPMA is once again extremely excited and privileged to be hosting PIPES XIII in conjunction with the Plastic Pipe Conference Association (PPCA) on 6 & 7 September 2022. As you may know, PPCA hosts the biggest international pipe conference every second year in either in Europe or the USA. Their spin off conference, which is organised every alternate year, is coming to South Africa this year! The conference programme will include at least 10 of the best papers from PIPES XX which was held in Amsterdam in 2021 in addition to our usual line up of national and international speakers. The event has been extended to two days to provide for an outstanding offering to our industry.
The main theme for PIPES XIII is “The Versatility of Plastic Piping Systems” and covers the two major pipe materials and products, namely PVC and HDPE in pressure and non pressure configurations. Presentations will deal with a wide spectrum of topics, from Raw Materials right through to Installation, including Product Standards, Quality, Design, Case Studies, Energy Environment, amongst other topics. Remember this is a hybrid conference that will include both physical and virtual attendance. Do not miss out on this great conference.
