New sounding of BIOT - 2018!

As from 11 to 14 December 2018, Moscow will become the place, for already traditional, XXII  International specialized exhibition "Safety and Labour Protection" (BIOT).   The leading Russian and foreign companies, working in the sphere of labour protection and ensuring industrial safety, will gather under the roof of the pavilion 75 of the Exhibition Centre VDNH.
Last year the exhibition hasn't just grown in volumes, but also has changed qualitatively - more than 350 companies from 20 countries participated in, and the number of visitors has reached 26 000 people. Companies from Belgium, China, Finland, India, Italy, Japan, Spain, Sweden and other countries had arrived to share experience and practices. For the first time the International Social Security Association (ISSA) participated in the forum.
Today BIOT is not simply a specialized platform for information and communication of those whose daily work is safety in all its aspects, but also an excellent research base which allows to present results of the work and to announce new projects. Many large companies and corporations show willingness to invest in new developments.
The extensive business program (more than 50 events) for the saturation and informational content reasonably allows to consider BIOT as one of the leading events in the sphere of safety in Europe. Here everyone finds the necessary information.
It is quite natural that BIOT, in 2017, became the venue of a governmental meeting on the perspective for decrease in number of occupational accidents. It was held under the leadership of Mr. Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian Prime Minister.  
Organisers of the exhibition don't want to be satisfied with achievements and seek the way to give new sounding to it.  We hope to have this year the same top level of attention to the BIOT.
