17 Sep '11 - SAPPMA Conference 2011
SAPPMA has proudly hosted its 5th Plastic Pipe Conference on 6 Sept at Bytes Conference Centre in Midrand. The event had record attendance and organisers received excellent feedback. In keeping with the theme: 'Why Plastic Pipe?', the programme offered topical presentations by 13 Speakers, of which 7 International. A question session was introduced this year, where the audience was given the opportunity to pose any question to a panel of experts. This proved to be very useful and interesting.

As usual, sponsors within SAPPMA's ranks were great in supporting the event and the exhibition stands were sold out early on. SAPPMA's CEO, Jan Venter, said in his foreword that SAPPMA applies a considerable amount of effort and cost to present these events on an annual basis and to achieve the highest possible standards. The purpose of the event was to convey accurate technical information to specifiers, design engineers and those who have to procure plastic pipe systems. In addition, the Conference informed on issues relevant to the industry, especially focusing on SAPPMA's mission of 'Guaranteed Quality'.

SAPPMA would like to extend a big thank you to everybody who has contributed in some way towards the success of the event.
