No easy task – simultaneous translator during the General Meeting.

General Meeting

Board elections and amendments to the rules were only a part of the Annual General Meeting in Luxembourg.

We congratulate Patrick Gil and Martin Rönngard on the election to the first and second chairmen.

We would like to thank Marco Siepi for his previous work as the first chairman.

Technology Forum 2017

Technology Forum 2017 – colorful, cheerful and joyful. And the exhibitors report the most successful forum ever !!
