Tabletop exhibition

The ITA conference brings together decision makers and specialists from all over the world. It is an excellent opportunity for presenting and promoting your products and services to the tube and pipe industry and securing further potential customers.

Our tabletop exhibition will complement the conference sessions and provide an opportunity for one-to-one discussions with suppliers and producers during breaks and lunch. As all conference participants will have their coffee and lunch breaks directly within the exhibition area, this guarantees highly engaged and influential potential customers right “on your doorstep“.

Since exhibition space is limited it is advisable to book early (first come, first served).
