The inaugural PEFTEC event took place at the Antwerp Expo in Belgium on 18 and 19 November 2015, and feedback from conference speakers, exhibitors and delegates has been extremely positive.
PEFTEC 2015 was created to provide the petrochemical industry with an opportunity to discover the latest information on testing and monitoring, in the laboratory, in the field and onsite. A packed conference schedule ran over both days and over 80 seminars took place in eight seminar rooms that were located within the exhibition hall.
In response to demand, the organisers had to increase the floor space of the exhibition. However, the majority of the booths were small and informative rather than promotional. Nevertheless, there were over 120 international laboratory and process monitoring equipment suppliers and analytical service providers on show, representing more than 220 organisations worldwide. As part of the PEFTEC technical programme, there were also 40 poster presentation, all of which were located within the exhibition hall. PEFTEC aimed to represent a truly unique opportunity to see the entire market sector under one roof at the same time.
Summarising her thoughts on the event, Elizabeth Wilkinson from Lovibond Tintometer said, “The inaugural PEFTEC event proved to be extremely successful, bringing in a great many industry experts throughout the supply chain. The organisers must be complimented on such a successful event for its first year and we certainly look forward to joining them again in 2017.”
As PEFTEC organiser, Marcus Pattison was delighted with the success of the event and with the highly positive feedback that it generated. “These are challenging times for the oil and gas sector, so it was very encouraging that PEFTEC 2015 was such a success, and we are greatly looking forward to PEFTEC 2017 which will take place 29th to 30th November, again in Antwerp.”
