Steering Committee 2024


Mr Bruno MartinDear valve industry peers,

In the 20 years that I have participated in VW conferences, I have always appreciated their excellent level of technical content, but also the quality of exchanges.

The world is changing. We see these changes most clearly in the world of energy, but the need for valves remains. The valve industry must adapt and face many challenges. New players are emerging, as well as new needs, such as a very high demand for cost reduction.

The Valve World conference is a unique place of exchange between end users, manufacturers, and engineers. This year, the topics will revolve around the three highlights: energy transition, standardisation, and digitalisation.

I would like to invite and encourage all of you in the valve industry to send in your abstracts and ideas and think of suitable topics that are important to you.

We’ll make sure that the Valve World 2024 conference will maintain its exceptionally high quality.

Best regards,

Bruno Martin,
Technip Energies
