After the successful premiere in 2011, the second staging of Valve World Americas Expo & Conference, will move to a larger venue to accommodate the unprecedented demand for space. The event will be held at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX from June 25 to 26, 2013.
This conference with an exhibition component will again be a collaboration between Messe Düsseldorf and KCI Publishing, both already cooperating for the Valve World Expo held in Düsseldorf, Germany every two years. Both partners will use their expertise from Valve World Expo in Europe to develop Valve World Americas Expo & Conference into a leading event for the industry on the North and South American continents.
Messe Düsseldorf, located in Germany, is renowned as a leading trade fair organizer and will be in charge of the exhibition component of Valve World Americas Expo 2013 through its U.S. subsidiary Messe Düsseldorf North America. KCI Publishing, based in Canada, will manage the conference part of the event.
At the conference and expo, attendees will get an extensive overview of technical innovations concerning valves, valve-related products and valve–related piping products, seals and sealing materials as well as engineering, LDAR (Leak Detection and Repair) software, S.I.S and services.
The first staging of Valve World Americas Expo & Conference held in 2011 in the Woodlands Waterways Marriott Hotel & Convention Center near Houston, was a great success. On 13,280 square feet of net exhibit space, 93 exhibitors from the U.S., Canada, Asia, Europe, India and Latin America presented their latest technologies to 1,100 visitors. Extensive growth for the 2013 event is expected.
