Conference

“Valve World” series of exhibitions and conferences started in Europe in 1998, and spread to the Americas, Asia, and other major markets around the world. Since its establishment it has been widely recognized as the most influential and professional valve focused event in the industry. The Valve World Asia Expo & Conference was first held in China in 2005. To date, the biennial event has successfully taken place in Shanghai and Suzhou nine times and been extremely beneficial for all those who have had the chance to participate. It has played an important role in connecting the supply and demand markets, and established a diverse platform for manufacturers, end users, EPC companies, and third-party institutes to network and form business relationships. On October 26-27, 2023, the first Valve World Southeast Asia Expo & Conference will be held in Singapore, to not only create more business opportunities, but will also foster new avenues for growth in the valve market.
