EIGA Symposium 2011 – A global gases gathering of the highest order


January was a critical month for global politics, and equally so for the industrial gases community.

This year’s symposium marked the 17th biennial event and saw delegates congregate from across the globe at Le Plaza Theatre in Brussels, Belgium. Proceedings began on 26th January and witnessed an outstanding attendance, drawing delegates from as far afield as Papua New Guinea, Japan and the USA.
