Looking forward to Duplex World 2010


Interview with Duplex World 2010 Exhibition Sales and Project Manager Mrs Elisa Hannan


With just two months to go, the Duplex World 2010 Conference & Exhibition is well on track to be a valuable international platform for materials and corrosion professionals specializing in the development and use of duplex stainless steels.


“This unique event will enable experts to exchange experiences on materials, applications, innovations and market trends” says Mrs Elisa Hannan.


“Duplex World 2010 Exhibition will be a very intimate happening,” she stresses. “We have deliberately restricted both the scale and scope of the event to ensure that all exhibitors and visitors can connect directly and focus on duplex applications and technologies”


“We aim to build a global duplex community,” she enthuses. “A community of knowledgeable, experienced and trusted members focusing on duplex applications and innovations in order to advance the duplex industry. The Duplex World Events should become the place where our community members can come together on a regular basis to update their knowledge and alert the wider community to the latest advancements”


“Of course – a community cannot exist without members, and we are fortunate to have some key players on board already,” continues Elisa. “The exhibitors represent a nice cross-section of the duplex supply chain: manufacturers, distributors and suppliers.“


Elisa further notes that the feedback she has had is that the exhibitors are already looking forward to the intimate atmosphere of the show, and are highly appreciative of the opportunity to directly engage with conference attendees and exhibition visitors alike.


“Together with the support and enthusiasm of our much valued sponsors we feel we can establish Duplex World as an invaluable and necessary industry event for many years to come”


The Duplex World Exhibition will be held in parallel to the conference and will host around 40 globally located exhibiting companies.

The Duplex World 2010 Conference is being organized by Mr Jacques Charles (General Manager Global R&D of ArcelorMittal).This allows parties to focus their energies on two key elements: a dedicated conference and a top-notch exhibition.


“The Duplex World 2010 Conference has benefitted tremendously from the expertise and dedication of Mr Charles as Conference Chairman and Conference Organizer. His passion for duplex is evident in all areas of the programme,” comments Elisa.


“Mr Charles is also responsible for The Duplex World 2010 Social Programme and has also been instrumental is developing a hugely attractive social programme,” she notes. “The Advance Conference Programme reveals that there are plenty of networking opportunities available in order to optimize networking opportunities in a more relaxed and informal atmosphere  – a provide that instant community spirit “


“The location of Beaune was also chosen by Mr Charles, who has had previous excellent experiences in Beaune during his 1991 Duplex Conference. Located in the heart of France, Beaune is an historic city with much to offer. It is a popular tourist destination with some internationally renowned attractions…and of course offers prime conference and exhibition facilities,” explains Elisa

Elisa concludes by revealing how much enjoyment she has had during the organization of Duplex World 2010 so far “The size of the show means we will have plenty of time to work with, and properly service, each and every sponsor, exhibitor and visitor”


“I am therefore looking forward to a successful show and helping to forge a rewarding experience for all visitors on both the personal and professional level.”
