In the course of this year's winter conference some "road shows" took place in London, Düren and Prague. Thus, we were lucky to welcome more than 30 participants in Düren who followed the presentations with large interest. The day after the EIPC winter conference started in Cologne. More than 90 attendees were present. As a part of the conference's programme a factory tour at Isola and CCI Düren was offered so that all participants had the opportunity to get an overview of all the changes at Isola. The strategic co-operation with our distributor CCI, also located in Düren, has been given proof of.
