ITA NEWS – Tube Southeast Asia 2019

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

19 September 2019
organised by the International Tube Association e.V.
at Tube Southeast Asia 2019

Bound to a turgid oil market, the demand for pipes has been comparatively low over the past few years, but recently, threatened sanctions by the US against Iranian and Venezuelan oil and gas exports and fear of shortages sent oil prices spiraling to a four-year high.

Demand in the tubes & pipes sector is growing, but trade tensions mean the markets are volatile. At the same time, growth and innovationin the major pipe-consuming sectors has led producers to seek consolidation and diversification. While pipe prices continue to climb, more demanding high-tech products are the strategic targets, rather than commodity-grade tubes.

With this in mind, the ITA team at Tube Southeast Asia 2019 (18-20 September 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 Southeast Asia.
Companies/ individuals not exhibiting in Bangkok 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.
