Since 1989, attendance at the annual PPIM Conference and Exhibition in Houston has grown from a few hundred to more than 3,500, including a commercial exhibition that began with a handful of specialized solution-providers and which now involves more than 190 companies and industry organizations from more than 25 countries.
In parallel with the demands for greater pipeline safety, reliability, and efficiency – and the explosive growth in the market for technologies to help meet those demands – PPIM has evolved to become the industry’s primary forum for reporting new developments and field experience, and for showcasing the relevant tools and systems for pipeline inspection, assessment and repair, as well as regulatory compliance and Integrity Management Programs. It is the place where the needs of pipeline operators and the capabilities of service and equipment suppliers intersect.
Information exchange at PPIM is supported by a range of educational technical courses that take place in advance of the conference and exhibition. Led by a distinguished faculty including the world’s top experts, the courses provide a foundation for well-informed inquiry and dialogue among industry colleagues, clients and contractors.
We take great pride in the fact that more than 60% of our conference participants are ‘repeat attenders’ and more than 90% of our exhibitors return each year. We hope you’ll be among them at PPIM 2023 and look forward to seeing you there.
