Pgexpo Online 2021, the first virtual fair also at an international level dedicated to companies that deal with the design, construction, maintenance and management of gas pipelines, methane pipelines, oil pipelines, aqueducts and those specialized in Utility Construction, opened at 10 am. For the well-known health issues, the Dpcm last October did not allow the inaugural edition of the Pipeline & gas expo to take place at the Piacenza Expo fairgrounds, effectively preventing over 150 exhibitors from presenting their most recent technical-commercial creations. . “For this reason, but also because of the persistence of the health emergency – underlines Fabio Potestà, the director of Mediapoint & Exhibitions, organizer of the Pipeline & Gas Expo – we decided to organize the online version of our event, offering the opportunity to participate to the virtual exhibition also to companies that did not participate in last year’s fair “. Pgexpo Online 2021, he adds, “is for us at Mediapoint the second experience of a virtual event after the very positive outcome of the Gic online 2021 (dedicated to the concrete sector), a fair that was visited by over 1,200 operators, including which were numerous foreign ones, more unable than others to move around our country “. “The decision to organize the Pgexpo Online 2021 was also strengthened by the good development prospects in Italy both for the infrastructure sector (and” Utility Construction “), and for the manufacturing sector, where there are many Italian manufacturers of machinery, equipment, instruments and technologies in the “Oil & Gas” and “Power Generation” sectors which boast a qualification and specialization also appreciated abroad “.” There is also no doubt that the substantial funding promised by the European Community will increase the realization of those activities necessary for the energy adaptation of our country and the use of the most innovative technologies to ensure respect for the environment “, he underlines.” “I would like to express a particular thanks to the approximately 120 exhibiting companies and trade associations international organizations (among which we highlight Asme, Iploca and Nace), who supported us in organizing the Pgexp o Online 2021, whose purpose was also to invite all operators in the sector in time to the second edition of the Pipeline & Gas Expo that we believe it is increasingly possible to organize in presence – concludes Potestà – from 8 to 10 June 2022 in the district Piacenza trade fair in conjunction with the inaugural edition of the Hydrogen Expo, the first Italian trade fair event dedicated to the technological sector for the development of the hydrogen supply chain (see www.hydrogen-expo.it) “.
