After two years of online Pipeline Technology Conference (ptc) and a hybrid event, ptc 2023 will once again emphasize face-to-face networking. From 8-11 May 2023, participants from all over the world will again travel to Berlin for the Pipeline Technology Conference and exhibition. About two-thirds of ptc visitors come from abroad. Delegations from 70 different pipeline operators were registered for the last ptc.
In addition to the traditional topics of safety, inspection, leak detection, construction and maintenance, next year's focus will again be on industry-captivating issues like hydrogen, CO2 transport and methane emissions. Against the backdrop of the current geopolitical situation, political discussions and in-depth exchanges with operators from Europe, Asia and Africa will be addressed in the keynote lectures and discussion panels.
Apart from current topics and news on development and application in the conference, the exhibition itself is gaining more prominence. Next year, the entire Hall 2 with 4,600 sqm will be occupied for the first time. Additional alternative space in the transition area between conference and exhibition will be used for special events. Already about 30% of the space has been sold.
A special focus will again be devoted to the area of promoting young talent. We are anticipating the lively participation of pipeline students from around the world in the execution of the event. Moreover – as in previous years - there will be a joint booth of the international Young Pipeline Professional organizations and, for the first time, a separate award ceremony for students and young professionals.
With an extensive evening program and various networking events, next year's ptc will again present a wide range of opportunities to exchange ideas with old acquaintances and new contacts from the global ptc community.
The call for papers for the conference is open until 30 September 2022.
