Feedback from the delegates was very positive with 100% of those responding to the survey stating they would recommend the seminar to a colleague. Many delegates also rated the case study presentations to be excellent or very good as they provided an end user experience of how Hot Isostatic Pressing can be used.
“The Design for HIP seminar was a great success with 57 participants joining the event,” says Lionel Aboussouan, EPMA’s Executive Director. “It was great to hear from the speakers and learn from their expertise as well as getting to meet the delegates who attended. The open discussion raised the issue of standardisation, which is a topic that EPMA and the EuroHIP group will hopefully be able to provide a forum for improvement in the near future”.
You can find out more about EPMA’s EuroHIP group here. The sectoral group was created to raise awareness and improve understanding of the benefits of HIP and the steering committee help organise seminars, publish an Introduction to HIP booklet, collate statistics and host meetings throughout the year to keep up to date with industry news.
