The inaugural ED&I Expo is taking place this week at the NEC, Birmingham (from Wednesday 6th - Thursday 7th September), with the support of headline sponsors the ECA.

As well as bringing a show floor bursting with expertise and innovative new products and services, there will be opportunities to network with industry leaders and learn from inspiring seminars and demos.

These technically and commercially-focused learning experiences are being delivered by a range of industry experts within a top class seminar programme being held over two days at the expo.

The ECA is set to play a pivotal role in the seminar programme, with discussions led by our in-house technical and health and safety experts; including Gary Parker, Peter Baxter Paul Reeve, Phil Bates and myself.
