Dear Colleagues

We are very pleased to welcome you to Brussels for the European Congress of the Taps and Valves Industry on 8 & 9 June 2017.

The CEIR Congress will take place in the heart of Europe: Brussels is the home of the key political and decision-making institutions of the European Union. This Congress aims to strengthen the relationship with EU decision-makers.

The 2017 edition of this Congress will address major regulatory developments and challenges facing the taps and valves industry. This two-day event will cover key issues for the various members of our business community through the CEIR General Assembly and one full conference day.

The conference debates will focus on four main themes:

  • Materials in contact with Drinking Water
  • Resource efficiency and the circular economy
  • The EU economy: the impact of Brexit and the USA’s “new isolationism”
  • Digitalisation

The CEIR Congress will be a unique occasion for leading industry representatives to meet policymakers, exchange views and discuss ways of finding suitable solutions for our industry. This event will also provide the opportunity to monitor and keep up-to-date on the most recent developments in EU policies that could affect your business as well as CEIR activities.

Finally, this Congress will gather together many European manufacturers in the field of sanitary, building and industrial valves, and also business partners. You will therefore enjoy networking sessions, including a gala dinner, to discuss with your peers and share your views and ideas with partners from all over Europe and the USA.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Brussels.

Yours sincerely,

Pascal Vinzio
CEIR President
