On Friday, 3 February 2023 IMPREG’s 8th International Operator’s Meeting ended.
Operator’s Event 2023
The annual International Operator’s Meeting is one of the TOP events in the pipe and sewer rehabilitation industry. Networking, further training and workshops are on the agenda for three days.
Presentations and workshops took place at IMPREG’s headquarter in Ammerbuch. A team consisting of 6 people, led by Nicole Schellmann (Marketing) ensured that everything ran smoothly.

Top-class speakers & workshops
- Update of the installation manual (Oliver Vorlop – Head of Application Technology, IMPREG )
- Polymerisation and curing (Prof. Dr. Jörg Sebastian, SBKS)
- Identify and evaluate defects (Hendrik Klar, ISAS)
- Leakage test after the installation (Christian Harth, Kuchem GmbH)
- Thermliner – heat from wastewater (Jürgen Quaas, Uhrig GmbH)
After the presentations and lunch, the workshops started in 6 small groups and six stations. When planning the workshops, the focus was deliberately placed on a high practical relevance to the daily work of application technicians with UV-curing pipe liners. As a result, the participants were able to try out, practise, learn, ask relevant questions and exchange ideas with each other.
A bus shuttle took the participants to the respective locations, including our traditional customer evening. This time we came up with something special and took everyone to the Teufelwerk in Nagold. In the old industrial hall, which serves as an event location, we dined exquisitely in a relaxed atmosphere. As a surprise and highlight of the evening, gaming tables such as Black Jack and Roulette were available after dinner under the motto “Las Vegas”. The games were played with fictitious money and the focus was on fun and games.
On Friday, 3 February, the participants who had not yet left were able to take part in our factory tour and look behind the scenes of the IMPREGLiner.
Our concept, which we optimise from year to year and adapt to customer needs, was excellently received. “Excellent” and “Perfect” was the positive feedback from our participants. We are very pleased about this and it confirms to our organisation team that the effort is worth it every time.
We would like to thank all speakers, exhibitors and participants for their contribution to our TOP event. We are happy to take these experiences with us and are already looking forward to the 9th International Operator’s Meeting 2024 from 31.01. – 02.02.2024!
