Istanbul will play host city to the ITA’s major 2009 technical conference

The International Tube Association�s next biennial technical conference, organised jointly with Ihlas Fuar, will take place at the WOW Hotel and Convention Centre in Istanbul from 2-3 November 2009. The provisional timetable for the conference on 2 November 2009 features welded, seamless and nonferrous papers as well as a market overview presentation by Metal Bulletin Research. Sessions will be conducted in two very well appointed conference rooms, with simultaneous Turkish, Russian and English translation. On the evening of 2 November all delegates and speakers will join with those from the concurrent wire conference to enjoy a social event at the famous Binbirdirek Cistern, located in the old city, close to Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. On 3 November optional plant visits will be available. The gala dinner will involve an evening of traditional Turkish entertainment. This will form part of the ITA�s 30th anniversary celebrations. A selection of sightseeing tours will also be on offer to delegates and their partners before, during and after the conference days.

The joint organisers for the conference are recruiting a high quality panel of speakers for the technical programme and a call for papers was issued in November 2008. Anyone interested in submitting an abstract for consideration should contact the ITA secretariat immediately.

The ITA�s sister organisation, the International Wire & Machinery Association, is co-organising a concurrent wire conference Istanbul Cable & Wire 09. This will be a similar format to the ITA�s Prague conferences held in 2005, when a total of 400 delegates participated at the joint events with many enjoying the synergies of these complimentary technical events.

Confirmed conference sponsors include Borusan Mannesman Boru San, Tube & Pipe Technology Magazine, Tube Products International Magazine, Messe D�sseldorf GmbH and Boru Magazine.
