Deadline looms for trade body’s gas industry conference


Time is running out to book places for the British Compressed Gases Association’s (BCGA) 2019 annual conference, taking place in Manchester on Thursday, April 11.

The event, being held at The Marriott Hotel & Country Club, Worsley Park, is already attracting significant interest – and organisers are urging those with an interest in attending to book soon to avoid disappointment.

This year’s conference agenda has been shaped around themes including safety, security and the environment.

Subjects featured include medical incidents, dangerous goods and how the latest wearable technology can improve workplace safety.

An insight into how gas can help to decarbonise transport, as well as an overview of the carbon and energy reporting landscape in Brexit times, are also being covered.

Rob Cockerill, Global Managing Editor for Gas World, will explore the megatrends and markets that will shape the industrial gases businesses of today and tomorrow.

And activities to enhance personal resilience and well-being, as well as tips to protect homes as they increasingly adopt smart technologies, are also on the agenda.

The event concludes with keynote speaker Claire Lomas MBE, who became a paraplegic as a result of a riding accident, and went on to make world headlines after completing the London Marathon in a pioneering robotic suit.

Doug Thornton, Chief Executive of BCGA, said: “Once again the BCGA conference committee has put together a highly-engaging and interesting event, which offers something for all.

“We’d strongly urge people to book their place as soon as possible, to ensure they are guaranteed a place.”
