IPLOCA’s Annual Convention will take place at the Hilton Prague hotel, Czech Republic from 13 to 17 September 2021.

Convention Theme

The theme for this year’s convention is “Pipelines Powering a Sustainable Future” and presentations at the Open General Meetings will focus on the many aspects of health, safety and the environment, as well as the rapidly evolving political response to climate change and its impact on the pipeline industry.

IPLOCA members will be able to host or attend Poster Sessions, participate in pre-arranged 10-minute Business to Business Meetings (B2B) with potential clients, suppliers, operators and contractors to discuss business opportunities, and updates on IPLOCA’s activities will be given during Regional Meetings on Thursday afternoon.

Cultural Programme

In addition to the business meetings, networking opportunities and the many social events, we have an extensive cultural programme lined up for delegates and spouses, which includes visits to Prague Castle; the iconic Charles Bridge, a pedestrian bridge lined with Baroque statues that spans the Vltava River; the astronomical clock in the Old Town City Hall, and just outside the city, one of the oldest castles in the world, Karlstejn Castle, built in 1348.

Delegates will also have the opportunity to visit the Jewish Quarter and the Franz Kafka Museum, and learn about the Velvet Revolution. Last but not least, a visit to Prague would not be complete without going to U Fleku Brewery – a place of pilgrimage for beer fans that dates back to the 15th century.

…and not forgetting our golf enthusiasts, the IPLOCA golf tournament is not to be missed!

Mark your calendars!

Registration for IPLOCA’s 54th Annual Convention is scheduled to open on Tuesday, 1 June 2021.
