14th LDPE Plant Improvement Conference

Gdansk/Sopot, Poland, 17.06.2019 – 19.06.2019

You are cordially invited to our 14th LDPE plant improvement conference.
We will discuss all technical aspects of building, running and maintaining an LDPE
or co-polymer high pressure plant - especially process, mechanical, electrical, safety
and control considerations.

The conference brings together all relevant stakeholders of this industry, well balanced between suppliers and operators, to discuss technical challenges, case studies and improvement initiatives around LDPE technology.

To make the meeting a success, we need your active participation with inspiring presentations of common interest to the LDPE community. We are looking for 30 presentations from operators, suppliers and team presentations. If you have a case to share, please send us a title and a 200 words abstract. In the months of January, March and May 2019 we will announce each time the 10 best proposals and this way build up our full programme step by step. Presenting plant operators will receive a 50% discount on the registration fee.

Venue and Accommodation

Sheraton Sopot Hotel near Gdansk


Sopot is a North Polish city on the Baltic Sea, which together with the neighboring cities Gdynia and Gdansk forms the so-called agglomeration Tricity. Sopot is known for its spa buildings, the sandy beach and the wooden pier that juts out into the Gdańsk Bay. In the pedestrian Monciak, which is also known as Monte Cassino, is the Krumme cottage. The bizarrely shaped building was built on the model of fairytale illustrations.

Address: Powstańców Warszawy 10, 81-718 Sopot, Poland
