London HEVAR seminar programme announced
New to the exhibition is a series of round-table discussions which will take place during the lunch period with a number of industry experts who will be available to discuss legislation, equipment, best practice, new policies or, indeed, any other problems. Visitors must book their session as spaces are necessarily limited.

The seminar programme is split under three headings. Implementation, Business driver and Technology. It will run alongside the exhibition.
