The countdown is on to the British Compressed Gases Association’s (BCGA’s) 2018 Annual Conference.

Places are limited for the event, which is being held on 19th April at Oulton Hall in Leeds, UK, and will see gas technology take centre stage.

The event includes discussion around the opportunities for hydrogen (H2) fuel celled vehicles (FCEV) with delegates able to hear more about this technology from Jon Hunt, Fleet Marketing Manager for Toyota.

There will also be an opportunity to see a FCEV vehicle first hand, with a Toyota Mirai at the venue.

Safety issues surrounding gas cylinders in the hospitality industry with Amanda Cockton of HSE are also discussed, while Pat Viroux of ProCcare discusses whole-body cryotherapy and whole-body-simulation treatments, which are growing in popularity across the UK.

Matt Hinde, Director of Energy for FleishmanHillard Brussels will also discuss the Brexit situation from an EU perspective.

Media medic and GP Dr Pixie McKenna will be the finale speaker for the 2018 conference. Best known as the presenter of Channel 4’s primetime, BAFTA-winning medical series Embarrassing Bodies’, Pixie has seen every condition imaginable and unimaginable.

Having trained as a doctor and practiced as a GP, she moved into TV to entertain and inform viewers with her experience and knowledge of sexual health, dermatology, women’s health and health promotion.

From Embarrassing Bodies to Health Freaks on Channel 4, Embarrassing Illnesses and Freaky Eaters, Pixie has become the UK guru of ailments and conditions that are somewhat outside the ordinary and will share some of her most memorable stories with delegates.

A full review of BCGA’s 2018 Annual Conference will be published in the June issue of gasworld magazine. Make sure you don’t miss out on all the latest developments and movements by contacting
