The Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International (FMA) and Tube & Pipe Association, International (TPA) have scheduled two tours to China in September that focus on sheet metal and tube and pipe, respectively. Each tour offers a unique opportunity to network with Chinese counterparts and witness China’s capabilities firsthand.


The tube and pipe itinerary also includes a special visit to the All China-International Tube & Pipe Industry Trade Fair in Shanghai. Each tour includes:


  • Visits to Chinese companies related to metal fabricating or tube and pipe, respectively, with current plans for plant tours in Guangzhou, Dongguan, and Shenzhen
  • Meetings with China industry trade associations and government officials
  • Transportation and accommodations in China (roundtrip airfare to China and an optional sightseeing tour are not included)


Dates for the sheet metal tour are September 13-20. Dates for the tube and pipe tour are September 20-27. For a complete itinerary, visit


Deadline to reserve a place in either program is March 31. Space is limited.
