5th IGH Forum from 20 to 23 June 2018 in Budapest/Hungary.
The annual forum has become a fixture in the IGH calendar and a good tradition . This year, representatives of 15 industrial partners and 27 members accepted our invitation to come to Budapest. The IGH management board and our member SEBÖK Kft. welcomed a total of 65 people to this 3-day event.
This represents a record level of attendance, reflecting the popularity of the event and cohesion within the group. The short presentations by the industry representatives, all of which emphasised the close-knit atmosphere and the cohesion on a personal level within the IGH, also reflected this!
Hans-Arno Kloep from Querschiesser, almost an "honorary member", was on board as always and gave an inspirational talk. A fantastic supporting programme including a sightseeing tour and a candlelight dinner on the Danube, rounded off the event.
The main attraction, however, was the personal invitation by our member SEBÖK Kft. to a factory tour and the subsequent Hungarian-themed evening. Owner Gergö Sebök impressed the attendees not just with his company but also with his hospitality, including top-notch food and folkloric entertainment . The evening’s highlight was the football match between a team of IGH members and the SEBÖK Kft. company team. Following a fierce battle, the IGH team (the older team) were beaten 3-0.
The intense discussions and inspirations encourage us to continue in the same spirit and to develop the “FORUM format" . True to the motto: AFTER the forum is BEFORE the forum!!!
After this event, the benchmark for next year’s FORUM 2019 has been set high, but we will try our best to beat it.
We extend our sincere THANKS to all members and industrial partners for their support; without them, such an event would not have been possible, and we hope to see them again soon.
