The Plastic Pipes Conference Association (PPCA) was formed to organise and run the series of Plastic Pipes Conferences on behalf of the international plastics pipes industry.

The organizations are represented by Robin Bresser (Secretariat), David Fink (Chairman) and Tony Calton (Vice Chairman and Treasurer) respectively, all as voting board members. In addition, Sarah Patterson (PPXXI OC Chair) and Zoran Davidovski (PPXXI OC Co-Chair/ Technical Program Chair) serve on the board as non-voting members.

Each of the conferences are intended to be self-financing and profits from one event are re-invested in future conferences, educational tools or “spin-off” events. The mission statement emphasizes their focus in the industry:

"PPCA is a global association dedicated to the ongoing creation and distribution of technical and application information on plastic pipes systems in order to educate and expand their safe, cost effective and sustainable use."
