Stainless Steel World 2001: day 2

The Stainless Steel World 2001 Conference and Expo’s second day was characterised by lively discussions in the workshops, fascinating paper presentations, a dedicated seminar on market research for the exhibitors and high-quality visitors at the Expo.
The conference opened with a paper presentation on corrosion behaviour of duplex stainless steel and nickel alloys sulphuric acid by Sytze Huizinga of Shell which well reflects the starting points of the Stainless Steel World concept: end-user input and a focus on practical experience. A workshop of particular interest was the welding workshop dedicated to Trevor Gooch and moderated by Paul Woolin of TWI and Harry Schrijen, DSM.
The Expo offered a perfect setting for networking and getting up to date with what the industry has to offer in a quiet and professional atmosphere. Delegates, exhibitors as well as expo visitors praised the quality of the contacts they were able to establish.
The day ended with the conference dinner at the Kurhaus on the North Sea shore. With close to 250 people attending, the dinner formed the social highlight of the event and will be remembered by many its good atmosphere and, of course, excellent food.
