Plastic Pipes Moscow 2013                                                                                                                                 12.7.2013

Date:  3 - 4 October  
Venue:  Nikol'skaya Kempinski Moscow

PLASTIC PIPES MOSCOW 2013 is the convention and exhibition event that will preview the latest developments in plastic pipe technology alongside experience gained by major utility, sewer, building and civil engineering sectors in the Region. 
Zoran Davidovski, chairman for the organizing committee explains: "The choice of Russia for creating this conference is based on the rapid development of plastic pipe technology in this region. With an estimated 24 million kilometers of surface and buried pipes in Russia, the potential market for converting to plastic pipes is enormous. Many existing pipe networks are of the non-plastic variety and in an advanced state of aging. Ease of installation of plastic pipe systems coupled with the spiraling cost of metal is driving out these heavy and porous methods".
