ITA NEWS – Tube Russia 2019

Tube & Pipe Industry Development Seminar 2019
“Trend-setting technologies and strategies for tubes and pipes”

14-17 May 2019
organised by the International Tube Association e.V.
at Tube Russia 2019

Latest market reports say the future of the global industrial pipe market looks promising, with new and increasing opportunities in power generation, the petrochemical and automotive industries, and industrial processing. Analysts at a recent industry conference predicted that demand for steel tubular products for the energy sector in the US will probably remain steady beyond 2018.

However, the market situation is volatile, and with oil and gas the largest market segment for the industry, the threat of spiraling oil prices due to Iranian sanctions in November and less spare capacity from Opec producers means that upstream producers are also unsure what to expect.

Now, the major growth drivers for this market may be more complex drilling techniques (new technology) and the rise of alternative materials.

With this in mind, the ITA team at Tube Russia 2019 (14-17 May 2019) is holding a Tube & Pipe Industry Development Seminar on the subject of trend-setting technologies and strategies to take the industry forward. We would like to invite members and colleagues to give a presentation at the event and are now open for abstract submissions.

This call is free of charge for exhibitors at Tube Russia. Companies/ individuals not exhibiting in Moscow can participate for a fee. Please contact us for an individual offer.

The theme of the Tube & Pipe Development Seminar 2019 is:
Trend-setting Technologies And Strategies For Tubes & Pipes

Interested speakers are invited to submit an abstract (max. 300 words) describing the main ideas of their papers together with the presenter’s résumé/CV (max. 200 words). Abstracts should focus on technical/economic classifications, new technologies, modernization, 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.

Each 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.
