The event attracted some 61 distributors from across Europe and the rest of the world, as well as representatives from Ion Science’s offices in France, Italy and the USA. Delegates were treated to guided tours of the purpose-built facility and updated on Ion Science’s ambitious growth plans, R&D, forthcoming new product developments and several exciting new applications for the company’s advanced instruments.
In addition, delegates participated in marketing workshops and were given refresher product training on Ion Science’s advanced fixed instruments, such as the Titan benzene specific monitor for petrochemical applications, and Falco fixed continuous photoionisation detector (PID) for humid and condensing environments. Training was also provided on the company’s well proven portable instruments, including the popular handheld Tiger volatile organic compound (VOC) monitor and Cub personal VOC monitor.
