  1. International Conference on Compressors and their Systems 2019
  2. Industry Day

Industry Day

11th September 2019

The Industry Day is dedicated to the challenges and opportunities for the compressor industry both nationally and internationally.
Representatives from the industry will talk about their companies and how they are responding to changes in technology or market demands, such as those due to economic, environmental or legislative changes.

Eight companies have been selected to present, covering a wide range of topics.

Each presentation will last for 30 minutes. Discussion forums will follow presentations in each session, and we expect that these will generate large interest and open discussion on issues important for the industry and academia.

In parallel with the sessions on the Industry day, participants will be able to visit the Conference Exhibition where companies will be presenting their latest products and services. Exhibition, Industry day and technical sessions will offer great opportunity for networking and developing collaborations.
