New interesting topics for the professionals in the industry.
All in all, a well organised conference with a lot of opportunities for learning and networking. A highlight of the STUVA Conference is certainly the festive evening, and the STUVA organisation says:
"because a well-developed network is one of the most important success factors in the profession and thrives on an unstressed exchange of thoughts and experience among colleagues".
We certainly manage to exchange thoughts and experiences this time and I thank the chairman and the managing director for the invitation and to take part as a speaker on this conference.
