They will feature five free conference theatres hosting business debates, technical presentations and training seminars. Last year’s debut event in Essen attracted 4,024 visitors. “We already have over

Conference programme confirmed for Plastic Pipes in Infrastructure

Speakers from Molecor, Wavin and Georg Fischer have been confirmed for AMI’s Plastic Pipes in Infrastructure conference, which takes place in Hamburg, Germany in April 2020. The conference will discuss pro-

gress in manufacturing and materials (including recyclates), as well as innovations and developments in plastic pipe systems.


A number of end-user case studies – including one from an irrigation project in Spain – will highlight the industry in practice. Plastic pipe systems are fast

replacing more traditional materials in areas such as drinking water supply and distribution, gas distribution, underground drainage and sewerage, and district heating.

PIPE & PROFILE EXTRUSION | November/December 2019 Plastic Pipes in Infrastructure also

offers the opportunity to network with industry experts from across the supply chain. There is a networking reception at the end of the first day. For more details, contact the

conference organiser Nicola Charles- worth (nicola.charlesworth@ami. international) on +44 (0)117 314 8111. The latest programme is available here.
