Registration is open for the European Industrial Gases Association’s (EIGA) next Winter Seminar, which will take place in Brussels, Belgium on 30th and 31st January (2019).

Held at the Le Plaza Hotel, the EIGA Winter Seminar is a long-standing January tradition. Almost 30 industry experts and external speakers will present on a range of topics under the title “Medical Gases – A deep breath”.

Why Medical Gases?

EIGA Members have been supplying medical gases for more than 100 years. EIGA has always focussed on the quality and efficacy of medical gas products and services to enhance patient safety, as well as the development of good practices and standards to protect our workers and users in the supply and handling of medical gases and homecare services.

EIGA also provides regulatory agencies and healthcare providers with advice on the safe manufacture, supply, handling and administration of medical gases. In recent years regulations and standards have developed into a complex landscape for EIGA members to navigate.

This Seminar is intended to continue that sharing of good practices and initiatives; to provide an overview of regulations and how they impact the production and supply of gases; and will look at what the future holds for patient safety and for medical gases in the healthcare industry.

It will be structured around plenary sessions on: safety, medical gases, the future for medical gases, homecare, medical devices and hot topics and breaking news for medical gases.

Who should attend?

The Seminar is intended for personnel working in healthcare functions in our industry, including operations, engineering, supply chain, quality and regulatory functions. Those recently recruited to the industry and those with more experience will benefit equally.

Senior managers from our industry including general management, technical, supply chain, sales and marketing functions.

Delegates from regulatory and government bodies; representatives of industry and patient associations, equipment manufacturers and suppliers, hospitals, notified bodies, customers and business partners are all welcome to attend.

Registration for the event is now possible and full details are at EIGA’s Winter Seminar website at ws2019.eiga.eu or at their main website www.eiga.eu.
