Hazardex 2018 Exhibition (with free access to seminars & workshops)

09 February 2018

The 2018 Hazardex International Conference and Exhibition will be taking place once again at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Runcorn, Cheshire, UK on February 28 and March 1. The two-day Conference & Exhibition, which also includes workshops, free seminar content, a networking dinner and awards ceremony, aims to strengthen and expand the community that looks to the Hazardex website and journal for industry intelligence and information.

At the 2017 Conference & Exhibition attendance was up almost 10% on 2016, itself up by a third on the previous edition in 2014. Although the main focus of the packed-two day event is the conference, the attached exhibition is also an important element, with leading hazardous area sector companies displaying their products and services to the assembled professional audience.

Exhibitors run the gamut from process control electronics and software to consultancy, certification and training, with a number providing niche technical solutions to the hazardous area industry. A large majority of previous exhibitors expressed satisfaction with the quality of contacts they had made, and a large majority rebooked stands in 2018.

There will also be workshops from ABB and Cogent Skills. Click on each for full details.

The event offers exceptional opportunities for networking, with attendees from government agencies, regulators and certification bodies meeting up with senior engineers and safety managers from the high hazard and process industries to share their experiences.

These opportunities come to a climax at the drinks reception and Gala Dinner at the end of the first day. The 2018 event includes the Hazardex Awards, designed to recognise excellence in the hazardous area sector.

After the success of the 2017 Conference, we plan an even stronger programme this year.

The main areas of interest at this year’s conference will be systems, procedures, competence, human factors, legislation, non-electrical, risk and asset management, and an original take on any aspect of hazardous area operations or process safety.

The conference committee issued a special request for end user/operator experiences, particularly relating to regulation, cultural change, ageing plant and decommissioning.

*New for 2018* we will be creating a focused area for the IIOT (Industry 4.0) with a view on cybersecurity and plant safety in the connected world. Also the BSIF will be detailing the new PPE regulations and your responsibilities.
