Re: PPXX Conference Update
The PPCA Board of Directors met recently and confirmed the decision to move forward with PPXX on September 6-8, 2021 at the Hotel Okura in Amsterdam.
There is sufficient interest from sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, and registrants to warrant holding the conference in person following the postponement of last year’s conference.
Country and hotel guidelines for social distancing and other COVID-19 guidelines are under development and will be communicated in the coming months for those attending the conference. Speakers not able to attend in person, due to specific travel restrictions or company policies, will be offered alternative options.
Also, the PPCA Board of Directors launched “Conference Partners”. This significant new initiative acknowledges the valued efforts of plastic pipe trade associations already actively involved with our conferences.
We are pleased to announce and recognize the following organizations for their support as ambassadors for the PPCA conferences in encouraging the submission of papers, participation on the organizing committees and for those that have hosted spin-off conferences.
• China Plastics Piping Association (CPPA)
• European Council of Vinyl Manufacturers (ECVM)
• Plastics Industry Pipe Association (PIPA)
• PVC Pipe Association (PVCPA)
• Southern African Plastic Pipe Manufacturers Association (SAPPMA)
Finally, the Technical Program will be posted to the PPCA site in the coming weeks so please check the PPXX website for future updates. We look forward to hosting this exciting technical conference.
