I just want to take the opportunity to thank you again very much for your hospitality and open welcome especially you gave me during the ADMEI17 conference in BCN.

For me as a first timer I felt very welcomed and appreciated and it helped me a lot to understand not only what ADMEI stands for, but also to get to know the idea and people behind it. You drive it with so much enthusiasm and pride about our job! I really got many new ideas and thoughts and it will definitely bring my business forward as well, as much as I am willing to get involved more with ADMEI and not only learn from it but also contribute to it.
