Dirk, Johan

Good to see you managed to make good agreements with the GWF
Especially knowing that in 2012 and 2013 we hard some hard times to get

And the reduced attendence fee of 25 euro's in something we in Holland
of course like as well!

Through our Dutch channels we'll (such as the website, and we'll keep the Dutch informed of the program.

Probably I won't attend the conference myself, because of obligations at
a different congress (Provero) which happens to be at the same day.
However, I might join at the drinks afterwards ;-)

Kind regards,
