BCGA 2019 Conference Agenda

Safety, security and the environment take centre stage at the British Compressed Gases Association’s (BCGA) 2019 annual conference, which takes place at The Marriott Hotel & Country Club in Worsley Park, Manchester, on Thursday, April 11. These include insight into key factors in medical incidents, an overview of dangerous goods and how the latest wearable technology can improve workplace safety.


In keeping with the trade association’s focus on ‘Mission Safety,’ a number of presentations will offer the latest thinking on the subject.



Environmental topics also feature strongly, including an understanding of how gas can help to decarbonise transport and an overview of the carbon and energy reporting landscape in Brexit times.


Moving to big scale thinking, Rob Cockerill, Global Managing Editor for Gas World, will explore the megatrends and markets that will shape the industrial gases businesses of today and tomorrow, while – on a more personal level - tactics to enhance personal resilience and well-being, as well as tips to protect homes as they increasingly adopt smart technologies, are also covered.


The event concludes with a story of personal endeavour, in the keynote speaker’s address.


Claire Lomas MBE, who became a paraplegic as a result of a riding accident in 2017, made world headlines in 2012 when she completed the London Marathon in a pioneering robotic suit.


At the BCGA event she’ll tell the audience how a positive attitude and approach turned her life around after the accident.


Doug Thornton, Chief Executive of BCGA, said: ”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.


“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.”
