The BEST BVAA Spring Conference yet!

BVAA Spring Conference & Golf Day 18-19 May – Formby Hall

With record numbers attending this year’s Spring Conference, our members enjoyed an excellent programme of speakers and networking, followed by dinner, entertainment, in the form of comedian Mark Watson, and Golf!

One of our BVAA members, Donna Thompson-Gough, Key Account Manager Freudenberg Sealing Technologies UK, commented, “The event as a whole was amazing! The speakers were all very interesting and thought-provoking, the topics all sparked thoughtful debate. Not only was the conference informative, friendly and excellently organised (as always), the networking opportunities it provided were crucial. We made good connections which we hope to progress.

One very important topic that I took with me is the future of hydrogen. I am sure that the conference has given, not just me but everyone who attended, a new knowledge about the importance of Hydrogen and I would like to thank the whole BVAA team for this.”
