Welcome to Euro CanTech 2016
The third instalment of the Euro CanTech conference and exhibition is now underway at the InterContinental hotel in Berlin.
After a busy day preparing for the show, some of the CanTech team were able to sample the local tourist hotspots on Sunday, including the Berlin Wall, the Brandenburg Gate and most importantly, the local tipple. However, yours truly did manage to get the team lost in the heart of Berlin, which caused some amusement from our American counterparts. I blame the map technology I was using, rather than user error. I have relinquished all future navigating duties during the trip, which I feel is only fair!
After registration opened on Monday, the afternoon began with the first tabletop session which allowed our suppliers to conduct some decent business. The day concluded with the first networking dinner of the week, which was very well attended and there may well be a few sore heads this morning…
Day 2 promises to be an informative day with the highlights including keynote speaker Colin Gillis, president of Ball Europe, the inaugural Candid Forum Q & A session and the Euro CanTech Awards Gala Dinner.
I hope you enjoy the show, keep an eye on the website for news updates throughout the three days.
