Forum participant’s opinion

«This was a very impressive group of professional industrial safety experts. It is useful to get people together who do similar work, so that they can gain knowledge from the experience of others and understand regulations and requirements for improvement of safety. There were very interesting and informative presentations and it was clear that people here were interacting and learning from one another.  However, I received interesting questions about my presentation and I hope that my presentation was of some use to the delegates. I enjoyed the interactions with the participants and I enjoyed the overall event. The organization of the meeting was exceptional. GCE management did a great job in organizing and implementing the conference».
