Although the economic crisis expresses itself differently depending on the geographical region, most of our clients need to reduce discretionary costs. Since the Alliance was founded, Inogen has organised two WorldView® conferences a year (and we were delighted to host our 20th in Toronto in May) receiving excellent feedback and we had great attendance at the event, but we feel strongly that we need to continue to provide the value of our conferences without our clients incurring the travel costs. Our workshop in Detroit in May (Spotlight Article) is an example of our new approach. Rather than you coming to us we will be coming to you…
Later this year, in October, we will be visiting clients in Europe with groups of associated Inogen partners. During these sessions we will present the latest developments regarding EHS legislation and practice from around the world.
At this moment we already have two workshops planned (at the client's location) on developments in emerging economies and the EU. No doubt other events will follow when requests from you and others come in. So, if you'd like to get a good insight in the latest EHS news from around the world give us a call and we'll be happy to arrange a meeting or workshop.
We will be hosting our next WorldView® Conference in Vienna, Austria in April 2013. The theme will be product-focused, discussing sustainability aspects of products and product design throughout the supply chain. We will be keeping you updated on the details, through this newsletter and our website.
I look forward to seeing you all soon,
CEO and President of Inogen
