International Tube Association launches 30th anniversary celebrations

The International Tube Association, the leading global association for tube and pipe engineers and other industry professionals, will mark its 30th anniversary in 2009 with a series of celebrations to highlight the milestone.

Established in 1979, the ITA has continually sought to develop and increase its influence in virtually every corner of the globe. To document the occasion of the 30th anniversary, the ITA will publish and distribute a commemorative booklet charting the ITA�s history.

The ITA�s celebrations will be aimed at recognising the loyal support of longstanding members, while also informing newer and potential members of the Association�s rich history. The 30th anniversary year will again be busy punctuated by several important events, reflecting the ITA�s continuing role within the tube and pipe industry.

Firstly, a members� buffet reception will take place at the annual general meeting on 20 May 2009. In addition, members attending the Tube Russia, Tubotech and Tube Southeast Asia exhibitions in 2009 will be invited to visit the ITA booth for special hospitality.

Later in the year, the ITA will stage a celebration at the Istanbul Pipe & Tube conference in Turkey.

During its 30 year existence, the ITA has organised or co-organised no less than forty-seven technical conferences or seminars in the UK, Belgium, Germany, Singapore, France, USA, India, Mexico, Italy, Hong Kong, China, Goa, Canada, Spain, Thailand, Czech Republic, Japan and Ukraine.

The conferences in 2009 are planned for China (Pipe and Tube Beijing 09) and Turkey (Pipe & Tube Istanbul 09).
