Air-Tech 2014 - Call for conference papers

Air-Tech 2014 takes place at the NEC, Birmingham from 8-10 April 2014, with the organisers describing the event as the UK's most important forum for compressed air, generators, and pneumatics businesses.

Air-Tech 2014 - Call for conference papers

The event in 2012 attracted more than 11,000 visitors representing all aspects of this industry. This figure was a 29 per cent increase on the attendance in 2010. Visitor numbers in 2014 are expected to be even higher.

A key element of the event is the programme of seminars that takes place in a dedicated conference theatre on the show floor on all three days of the show. The seminar presentations, each lasting 20-25 minutes, provide an excellent opportunity for visitors to bring themselves up to speed on key developments in the industry.

There are only a very limited number of seminar slots available and the organisers are now inviting potential speakers to suggest ideas for stimulating and informative topics that they would like to present as part of the programme. These should not be commercial presentations; topics should be technical, practical and of help to attendees in their working lives.

Possible topics for presentations include:

  • Counterfeit parts
  • Eliminating pressure problems in compressed air systems
  • ISO 11011: Compressed Air System Energy efficiency: Assessment
  • Food grade compressed air best practice
  • Compressed air system maintenance
  • Heat recovery from compressed air
  • Oil-free air
  • Energy audits

This list is not exhaustive. If you have suggestions for other topics related to the compressed air, generators and pneumatics, contact the organisers.
