The event followed in the tradition of the 2 preceding successful editions in 2008 and 2011 and provided a 360° view on all major aspects driving innovation in the Personal Protective Equipment sector in Europe. It brought together thought leaders from all stages of the PPE value chain including procurers and end users from across Europe. The event was co-organised by all major trade federations of the PPE value chain in Europe and the European network of public procurers of PPE. It represented an excellent networking opportunity with a less commercial focus than a trade fair and a less technical scope than a scientific conference.

Topics covered by internationally recognised experts:

  • PPE Market Trends Europe & International
  • Evolving User Needs
  • European Regulatory & Standardisation Developments
  • New Technologies for materials, production, care & maintenance and recycling
  • New Developments and Approaches in Public Procurement
