Tube & Pipe Industry Development Seminar 2017 – 7 June 2017 in connection with Tube Russia 2017

The world’s economy is in deep adjustment period after the international financial crisis. The growth rate may pick up, but the overall weak trend will continue. Due to smaller demand in the downstream industries, competition will become more intense.
In the situation of tough economic environment, how do enterprises grasp downstream market trends? How to deal with international trade frictions for export enterprises? How to achieve win-win? A platform is needed to discuss these problems. This is why we organise hold Tube & Pipe Industry Development Seminar during Tube Russia exhibition in Moscow. In preparation for the event, we are now open for abstract submissions and invite you to become a speaker at our seminar.

The theme of Tube & Pipe Industry Development Seminar 2017 is:
"How to stay competitive in difficult times"

This call is an exclusive offer for exhibitors of Tube Russia.

Interested speakers are invited to submit an abstract (max. 300 words) describing the main ideas of their papers together with the presenter’s CV (max. 200 words). Abstracts should focus on technical/economical classifications, new technologies, modernisation, R&D or recent case studies rather than company presentations. Joint presentations between pipeline operators and technology providers are welcome. All proposals received will be considered by our Technical Committee. Speaker gets a presentation time of 20 minutes plus Q+A. The presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and distributed to the conference attendees. All abstracts and papers will also be available free of charge for ITA members six months after the conference.
