Key-note speaker programme

The International Federation of Hospital Engineering (IFHE) and the Dutch association for technical facility professionals in the Healthcare sector (NVTG) have invited high-level key-note speakers related to hospital engineering to share their professional knowledge for better healthcare engineering worldwide for the IFHE NVTG World Congress. The conference will take place on April 18th and 19th, 2016 in The Hague in The Netherlands. The congress will attract many hundreds of visitors from healthcare organizations and industries all over the world. Furthermore, the first international Building Award will be awarded to the best healthcare related building project of the year. The congress theme of 2016 is: Sharing knowledge for better healthcare worldwide.

Congress with added value for our members

The target group for this conference is technical facility professionals linked to the cure and care sectors including healthcare facility professionals, technical consultants, building (services) contractors, manufacturers, and suppliers. The programme aims to provide new insights and ideas for the professionals, the members of NVTG and the IFHE. The topics will be regarding trendsetting technical content or attitude, entrepreneurship, cultural and international possibilities to learn from each other. We can identify many social-technical trends, but are these trends an opportunity or a threat for the technical facility professional?


The topics on this congress mention issues and problem-interpretations from various (international) approaches and the speakers share experience on policy and solutions from which the healthcare engineering professionals can learn. During the coffee- and lunch breaks you will have the unique opportunity to visit representatives of circa 120 companies, industries and manufacturers in healthcare business at the exhibition stands located in between the two conference rooms. At the end of both days, while enjoying a drink, you will be able to expand your social network to meet colleagues and fellow professionals to share knowledge for better healthcare worldwide.
