In January 2009, around 130 delegates attended the first ever South American industrial gases conference in Santiago, Chile.

The Challenges Facing the Gas Industry in a Region of Opportunity

This conference will offer you an insight into the current business demands and opportunities in the South and Central American Regions, which have been experiencing rapid growth of late.

The conference highlights the region’s opportunities for growth and the driving force creating the demand for gases. It also presents global subjects, such as best operating practices being adopted within our industry, and touches on gas technology and safety standards throughout the region.
