Dear colleagues and friends,

On behalf of the CEIR Board, it is a pleasure to announce that the CEIR 2015 Congress will be hosted by our UK member BMA, the Bathroom Manufacturers Association, and will take place in Rudding Park Hotel, Follifoot, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, from Thursday 11th June to Saturday 13th June 2015. 
The economic, financial, social or environmental challenges remain numerous and complex in 2015. As the year begins, we expect many of these to influence our valve businesses in some way. This is why CEIR exists and pursues its mission to apprehend and embrace these challenges together with all its members, and shape the future of our industry. This is also why, once a year, it is important to gather, exchange, analyse and give impetus to our sector. 
This 2015 event will bring presentations and discussions addressed to all technologies, sanitary, building and industrial valves on sustainability, the internal market, intellectual property rights, innovation, market access and the economic outlook.
CEIR members, associate members and sister associations worldwide are all welcome to join us. Together with the BMA, we are finalising an attractive programme with varied and comprehensive presentations, all necessary conditions for effective working sessions as well as enjoyable gatherings for both partners and spouses. 
See you in June in Harrogate,
Klaus Schneider, CEIR President
