We invite controllers from all over Europe to exchange experiences from different countries. Thanks to bilateral, simultaneous Polish-English interpretation, you will easily understand foreign speakers.

Integration party and networking

The enormous value of our congresses is also the possibility to establish a network of contacts and integrate the participants. During the evening meeting we will organise activities and enable informal exchange of experiences.

Knowledge, experience, inspirations – these are important congress assets, however not the only ones. Competitive advantage is achieved also through an extensive network of contacts. Starting form the morning, the participant exchange business cards and join in the networking sessions and in the evening the exchange experiences and make contact in a less formal atmosphere. Come and see how you can benefit from them in the future.
