Event Overview

America’s largest gathering for the steel, tube and pipe industry welcomed 303 delegates from 167 companies back to Houston in March, 2016.

Consistency and reliability; these are the two words our conference embodies. Though conditions have been tough for companies with exposure to the recent downtrend in oil prices, opportunities for growth never disappear.
