HUGE ATTENDANCES AT THREE BVAA DESKTOPS

In the last 7 days we have hosted 3 Desktop events at SNC Epsom, Wood Aberdeen and SNC Bristol, with 36, 82 and 50+ attendances respectively. We make that a possible 6,384 interactions – in a week! Do numbers count? There’s definitely a feel-good factor about well-attended events adding a bit of atmosphere and vibe. But it’s been stated to us time and time again by members that...

SAFETY VALVE TEG/QUALIFICATION SCHEME

At the March meeting of the BVAA Valve WG, we discussed again the appetite for a Technical Expert Group to develop a Safety Valve Qualification Scheme, a topic of discussion in the VWG for some years. As instructed, after the allotted period, we are therefore asking if Members feel there is a need for such a Scheme, thus Group, and also a call for participation. We will also need a volunteer...

IVS BERGAMO

The BVAA Away Team recently returned from the IVS Bergamo event in Italy. Despite a poor stand location (it was predominantly a recce mission) we were delighted to see so many members (15~20) attending what is a show utterly dominated by Italian suppliers. It is however a cracking little event, with 10,700 visitors over two days, a Conference etc. and BVAA certainly will hope to attend again...

GOLF

It wouldn’t be a BVAA Conference without the obligatory golf, and Formby Hall delivers a cracking day in spades! Blessed with the usual brilliant good weather, the golf was challenging on a very dry, bouncy course, but a fun day was had by all. Nearest the Pin was Ross Cunningham (M Seals). Longest Drive was Alan Weetman (Steam Plant). Third place – astoundingly – went to the BVAA ...

ATTENDANCE BREEDS SUCCESS

Yet again we witnessed first-hand members enjoying new business successes – that were directly attributable to being actually at the Conference. It’s not BS, it happens. And it happens because people meet face-to-face in a convivial environment conducive to breaking down barriers. One of the points of an association. Althought the 2019 Conference was reasonably well attended by head...

The section reported on the UK situation in error, rather than the global one.

VALVE WORLD STAND 2020, BOOK NOW!

Seriously we mean it. The VW stand is BVAA’s biggest single ticket-item spend and possibly our most appreciated. Our American friends are not coming this time, so BVAA has a little more space available, but there’s still only 6 booths left. Because of the contract arrangements we are forced, economically, to accept bookings on a first-come first-served basis, and as before there are...

DO YOU WANT IMPARTIAL TRAINING?

BVAA training programmes are led by professionals with the highest technical experience who deliver informative programmes covering the valve / actuation industries. Not only are these training courses extremely detailed but also impartial. The course doesn't aim to push a particular product and this is in stark contrast with other courses which usually have an ulterior motive. We are ind...
