What Participant Says:

"Last year's summit was quite informative, entertaining and stomach-filling. The venue as well is good, at par with the level of RATEC. 🙂 Suggest that we include some key note speakers with a hands-on experience on design of PPVC. Just limit his discussion on PPVC with separate, independent component of structural elements. I'm sure the technical audience will surely appreciate it. Thanks."
