About East Asia Pacific Area (EAPA) 2021 Virtual Conference

About EAPA

The East Asia Pacific Area (EAPA) has the highest influence in corrosion and corrosion control in the area. Every 2 years, the EAPA section organizes one of the largest corrosion conferences in the region. This year, we have partnered with the Australasian Corrosion Association (ACA) to take this popular conference virtual for the first time ever!

This year promises to be bigger and better as professionals from around the world representing infrastructure, utilities, transportation, oil & gas production and manufacturing, and more come together for this unique opportunity to hear the latest insight on corrosion issues specific to the area from global industry experts, expand your network in a whole new way, and discover cutting-edge technology and services to advance your corrosion mitigation plan.
