ESOPE: European Symposium on Pressure Equipment

The AFIAP organizes a symposium every three years since 1977 bringing together experts and actors in fixed and transportable pressure equipment, to meet up and discuss all the developments in their field.

In 2016, the main focus will be "Construction and life of pressure equipment : the challenges of globalization" .

The « European Symposium on Pressure Equipment » is a piece of evidence for the AFIAP to wish to open up on a European and International scale in the context of the implementation of European Directives applicable to this equipment.

More than 500 people come together from all over the world for:

  • plenary sessions
  • a panel session "Means for competitiveness on the pressure equipment market: innovation, cost-efficiency, safety"
  • technical sessions
  • a poster session (in the international exhibition, including the Poster award)
  • the AFIAP and Poster awards
  • a parisian gala dinner
