Demand in the industry for networking and opportunities to exchange ideas and information

ITPS – International Thermprocess Summit proved to be a tremendous success when it was held for the first time in Düsseldorf on the 9th and 10th of July 2013. Excellent feedback has been received not only from the 147 international participants from 16 different countries but also from the companies which exhibited.

Prominent experts from Brazil, China, India, Japan and the USA, considered making the trip to attend the two-day Thermprocess Summit worthwhile, as the latest technologies and processes in the heat treatment were presented and in some cases involved heated discussions. René Branders, President of the European Committee of Industrial Furnace and Heating Equipment Associations (CECOF) in Brussels, for example, drew attention in a tweet sent directly from the conference addressing the “outstanding debates” that were being held in Düsseldorf.
