     The one-to-one meetings were very interesting. I managed to see people that I would not meet at regular exhibitions or appointments. It was interesting because they were from different countries; from Poland, from Slovakia, from Spain. It’s good, when you want to have a global picture and  global contacts. The meetings were very good for that.

EMEA Railway Market Manager
