The 2017 CEOCOR Congress in Luxembourg was a great success, both technically and socially. The venue was excellent, and the superb Congress dinner was held on the Princess Marie-Astrid boat on the Moselle river, famous for the signing ceremony of the EU Schengen agreement! Thanks must go to our friends in Luxembourg.

Planning for the 2018 CEOCOR Congress in Stratford-upon-Avon, is well underway.  In addition to the technical presentations and exhibition, there will be a Partner’s Programme, including visits to Shakespeare’s birthplace, Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, behind the scenes at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, and to a nearby stately home.

A sponsorship programme has been developed which offers a significant opportunity for the UK (and elsewhere) buried pipeline community to participate. The principal
or Platinum Sponsorship has already been taken up by National Grid, the sole owner and operator of the high pressure gas transmission infrastructure in the UK. Cathodic Protection Co. Ltd. from Grantham has taken one of the Gold Sponsorships, and will also sponsor the BBQ and Jazz evening. Other sponsorship packages are also available and details of these can be found on the conference website, www.ceocor2018.com.  Those companies wishing to secure sponsorship at the 2018 CEOCOR Congress need to be quick, as places are filling-up fast.

Conference programme, registration details, hotel package, partner’s programme and news will all be available on the website, which will be regularly updated.
