Industrial Valve Summit 2019
Industrial Valve Summit, the international exhibition and conference on valve and flow control technologies, will be held on May 22nd – 23rd 2019 in Bergamo.
After the success of the past editions, Industrial Valve Summit is back to enhance the value of “Made in Italy” and to show and share competences, knowledge and a know how unique in the world.
The exhibition has established itself as an instrument for promoting the excellence of the national industrial production as well as an important reference point for the local economic system in Lombardy, thanks to the growing number of participants. IVS 2019 aims to increase its numbers with more visitors, exhibitors, events, conferences and networking opportunities. The past editions registered 3,500 presences (2015) and 8,000 presences (2017).
At IVS 2019 we expect to welcome more than 250 exhibitors with 10,000 sqm exhibition area and 10,000 visitors from over 60 countries around the world. The Italian Oil&Gas valve sector plays a leading role in Europe and is a real reference point at international level, as resulting from the report by Prometeia, leading provider of research for institutional investors.
The value of the Oil&Gas valve market amounts to 3.3 billion euro with 11,000 operating units belonging to 300 companies. “Made in Italy” heads therefore the total European valve production with a market share of 31%, followed by Germany (26%), UK (13%) and France (11%). The strong export attitude, representing 90% of the industry turnover, is balanced by a strong local presence in Italy, particularly in Bergamo. Over 90% of the Italian valve producers are located in an area of 100 Km around this town. Italian manufacturers of Oil&Gas valves and flow control solutions play also a leading role in the national mechanic manufacturers panorama, thanks to the high added value of their technologies and the amount of R&D investments.
