Retrospect 2021

Our sponsors


Held online from 1 – 3 June, the Duplex World Virtual Conference 2021 offered a wide range of topics relevant for manufacturers, suppliers, and end-users of duplex stainless steels.

Duplex World has a long-standing reputation as a high-quality technical conference on all aspects of this versatile group of materials. In 2021 the focus once again was on networking and discussions.

Each virtual conference afternoon was themed:

  • June 1 – Manufacturing Duplex
  • June 2 – Welding and Additive Manufacturing with Duplex
  • June 3 – Duplex Applications

The International Steering Committee developed a virtual conference that was both informative and accessible. Drawing on a year of experience working in the online environment, they ensured that the technical conference program was inclusive, lively, and relevant for all participants. Conference topics were divided into easily-digestible sessions followed by networking and Q&A opportunities to ensure maximum engagement by all.

Technical, relevant program
Duplex World is renowned for the technical depth and relevance of the topics presented. While duplex stainless steel is holding its own in traditional markets such as chemical/petrochemical and oil & gas, it’s also expanding into structural applications such as bridges and tanks. Additive manufacturing is an exciting application that is also exploiting the benefits of this family of materials. Welding remained a popular topic, while case studies provided real-life reference cases. Our expert speakers covered these topics and more in the adapted online conference program.
