History

CryoUsers meetings started over 25 years ago, when many of the UK Universities purchased helium liquefiers; varying degrees of operational success led the technical staff responsible for operating the liquefiers to gather together and share operational experiences.

The first event was hosted by Lancaster in 1991 and was a clear success, not only in sharing experience, but in establishing a network with its own identity and strong interconnecting bonds. Industry also recognises the merits of CryoUsers as an influential group in the marketplace.  

The CryoUsers Group has continued to meet every two years, moving to a different venue each time.  The gathering has evolved to include a range of talks, networking opportunities and an industrial sponsors’ exhibition.
