The British Compressed Gases Association’s (BCGA) 2019 annual conference will look at safety, security and the environment at The Marriott Hotel & Country Club in Worsley Park, Manchester, on Thursday, April 11.

There will be a series of presentations on BCGA’s focus on ‘Mission Safety’, covering medical incidents and an overview of dangerous goods. Environmental topics will also be strongly featured.

Rob Cockerill, Global Managing Editor for gasworld, will explore the megatrends and markets that will shape the industrial gases businesses, share tactics to enhance personal resilience and well-being, as well as tips to protect home as they increasingly adopt smart technologies.

“We are delighted with the variety and thought-provoking content on the agenda of the 2019 conference. It’s interesting and varied and offers something for all,” said Doug Thornton, Chief Executive of BCGA. 

“Attending the event allows delegates, whether BCGA members or non-members, the opportunity to network with like-minded people. The conference has gone from strength-to strength over the years, attracting a full house and providing an important date in the industry’s calendar.”

The event will conclude with a story of personal endeavour. Claire Lomas MBE, who became a paraplegic as a result of a riding accident in 2017, made headlines in 2012 when she completed the London Marathon in a pioneering robotic suit.

At the event, Lomas will share with the audience how a positive attitude and approach turned her life around after the accident.
