let me please welcome you in Prague, in the city of hundred spires on Vltava River, the capital of the Czech Republic.
Prague has been a political, cultural, and economic centre of central Europe with waxing and waning fortunes during its 1,100-year existence. Founded during the Romanesque and flourishing by the Gothic and Renaissance eras, Prague was not only the capital of the Czech state, but also the capital of the Holy Roman Empire. After the World War I Prague became the capital of Czechoslovakia.
In the City of Prague, history has been written over the centuries, in these days we continue at an Annual Global Meeting, which is attended by nearly 110 delegates from around the world. This fact has already made this meeting one of the most successful.
Together with the AGM Committee led by Corinna Voss we built strong agenda with interesting speakers and topics, which I believe you appreciate. With Todd Lynch we prepared all the materials, took care of finances and logistics. I really enjoyed the cooperation with all the people responsible for AGM and I would like to thank them all for their hard work they have done.
It is hard to be better than all the great AGM meetings we did in the past but we will do our best.
Kind regards,
Patrik Schober
