World’s No.1 Exhibition for Industrial Valves in Düsseldorf for 4th time

Global No.1 Exhibition for Industrial Valves to be held in Düsseldorf for the fourth time: International Experts meet at VALVE WORLD EXPO 2016


June 2016

They are made to work everywhere and still vary widely in size and application: fittings that ensure safety in the oil and gas industries, channel fluids through chemical plants, control the supply and drainage of water, gas or highly corrosive media or regulate the correct flow in the beverage industry.

The entire spectrum of industrial valves will be covered by VALVE WORLD EXPO in three exhibition halls from 29 November to 1 December: the ranges encompass valves, valve components and parts, actuator drives and position controllers, compressors, engineering services and software, associations and publishers.


For three days the exhibition halls 3, 4 and 5 will then become the No. 1 international meeting point for the industry, for valve specialists and expert users from many user industries. Users come from the fields of oil, gas and petrochemical industries, chemical industry, food industry, marine and offshore industries, water and waste water management, automotive and mechanical engineering, pharmaceutical industry as well as power plants.

At this early point in time over 19,600 square metres of net exhibition space are already occupied. 638 exhibitors from 39 countries have registered. Most European companies come from Italy, Great Britain, Germany, Spain, France, Turkey and the Netherlands. Overseas visitors will mainly come from the USA, India, Taiwan, South Korea and China.

The accompanying technical “VALVE WORLD Conference Düsseldorf 2016” will again be organised by KCI in Hall 4. Alongside topics of the future such as material selection, new technologies and processes for the production and application of valves, new energies and the analysis of new services, an in-depth debate about the structure of the industry will be centre stage here.

Lectures, workshops and seminars deepen the content covered by the Conference. Organisers expect experts from all over the world to exchange with conference delegates on innovations from the dynamically growing area of valve technology including its upstream and downstream technologies.

The Pump Summit, the International Exhibition & Conference for Pump Technology, will take place on the ground floor of Hall 7.0 on 29 and 30 November. Here networkers and pump specialists will come together and the producers, distributors and users of pumps, seals and compressors will present their products and exchange expert knowledge.

The Pump Summit will be accompanied by a Conference. The agenda features talks and selected workshops on pump and seal applications in a wide variety of industries.
