What the Attendees say:

Rockwell Automation
Thank you very much for last night’s event. It was excellent. Could you please include me in all future events - Jaco Strydom

Ngena DesignSpace
These functions are a wonderful way for ‘out of towners’ to meet new people and make friends in the industry. We will definitely be at the next event. It was the first time that Ngena DesignSpace attended one of your functions. I met a few people who could make use of NDS’s services and vice-versa. It was really worthwhile attending the function. I learned a lot from Mike Rossouw’s presentation and the food was good as well.

Remco Industries
It was really worth it to attend the event. Mr Briggs was outstanding. The environment was so very accepting and what a dinner.
