The programme will suit all needs of delegates of the taps and valves industry:

- Visits to industrial sites or laboratories, namely Renault Trucks or Carso laboratory
- Speakers on the economic situation of the taps and valves industry and the customer market
- Discussion on market surveillance and ongoing EU initiatives on conformity assessment
- Testimonies on the ongoing revolution and new technologies our industry is currently facing
- Follow-up of the numerous topics covered by our association for all valve sectors, including the water label, legislation impacting material in contact with drinking water, and Building Information Modelling.

This European Congress will be a great opportunity for exchanging views on issues which influence the taps and valves business. In addition, this event offers networking opportunities alongside the Congress sessions, the gala dinner and social events.

In parallel to the delegate programme, a partner programme has been designed to explore the oldest part of Lyon and its traditional artwork.
