WorldSkills International is the world's largest skills competition and careers event. This year's event was held in London at the ExCeL Exhibition and Conference Centre from October 5th to 8th. Every two years and in a different city, hundreds of young skilled people gather together from around the world to compete and test themselves against demanding international standards. To take part in the competitions, the participants have to win the Regional and National championships in their own countries.
This year more than 200,000 visitors from across the UK came to watch competitors from 51 countries/regions competing in 46 skill areas, ranging from health care, cooking and arts to engineering and manufacturing.
The Harris Products Group was pleased to take part in WorldSkills as an official supplier of gas equipment and alloys for welding, plumbing and heating, refrigeration and air conditioning competitions.
Harris products were also displayed at the Lincoln Electric booth; Lincoln was one of the official sponsors of the event.
Thanks to everyone who took time to visit us.
