VALVE WORLD EXPO, the international trade fair and convention for industrial valves and fittings, is a biennial event that has been held in Düsseldorf since 2010. It showcases a sector of industry that warrants good potential growth in the future. Valves and fittings are used in a wide variety of different industries. They ensure safety in the oil and gas industry, channel liquids and gases in the chemical industry, regulate incoming and outgoing water and ensure a free flow of liquid in the drinks industry.
This is clearly a good reason to hold further regional events in the USA and Asia. The combination of a trade fair and conference has so far proved its worth in all three places.
VALVE WORLD EXPO Düsseldorf
December 2014 was the third time that the international trade fair and convention for industrial valves and fittings, VALVE WORLD EXPO, was held in Düsseldorf. To meet the rising demand among exhibitors, a further exhibition hall was added to the event. 665 companies from 40 countries occupied a total space of about 18,000 square metres.
The latest technologies were presented in valves, valve-related products and components, actuators, position controllers, compressors, engineering services and software as well as industry associations and publishing companies. In all, 12,500 trade visitors came to Düsseldorf on the three days of the tradeshow.
The event was held in parallel with the PUMP SUMMIT where about 30 exhibitors from Italy, UK, Germany, China and the United States showcased innovative technologies, components and systems for pumps and seals.
Pumps must be safe and reliable in conveying solid, liquid and gaseous media and are used in a wide range of different industries. Both the trade fair and the conference focused on specific markets: water and wastewater, facility management, food and beverages, mining, the chemical industry, oil and gas, the power industry, the pharmaceutical industry, shipbuilding, pulp and paper as well as engineering and contracting. www.valveworldexpo.de or www.valveworldexpo.com.

VALVE WORLD EXPO ASIA in Suzhou (China)
VALVE WORLD EXPO ASIA will be held in Suzhou (China) on 23 and 24 September 2015. Experts from all over the world will meet at the Suzhou International Expo Centre to learn about new industrial valves and fittings for use in oil and gas, the (petro-) chemical industry, power generation and process engineering. Here, too, the trade fair and the accompanying conference will be closely related in content. Further details can be found on the web portal, at www.valve-world.net.
The growing family of international flow technology trade fairs also includes the world’s biggest tradeshow for pipes and tubes, Tube Düsseldorf, as well as regional events in Moscow, Russia (Tube Russia), Sao Paulo, Brazil (TUBOTECH), Bangkok, Thailand (Tube Southeast ASIA), Shanghai, China (Tube China), Mumbai, India (Tube India) as well as NEFTEGAZ in Moscow, Russia.
